Alice is perusing an article in Newsweek titled something like "What Makes Girls Girls."

Alice: It says that most parts of the female brain are larger than their male counterparts, except the amygdala.
Richard: Which is the part that controls violence and aggression?
Alice: That's the amygdala.
Richard: And that one's bigger in men?
Alice: Yes. That's why women are less likely to get into fights.
Me: So then the part of the brain that controls mud wrestling and pudding fights must be larger in women too.
Richard: And Jell-O! What's that one called?
Alice: It's only in the male brain, and it's called "imagination."
