These go to eleven

Misogyny: Pretty much always funny?

But we're a little mystified: on this Dell Book Comparison Chart, Why is it more interesting to spend an evening with this book than with a beautiful woman?, we're confused..? About the number-of-words joke? Like, specifically, why does a [beautiful] [$45] woman only speak eleven words?

Is it that the number that means "mutual oral pleasure" hadn't been invented yet in 1943 or whenever, and the number 11, representing "upright congress" was as crazy as it got?

Help us out, ladies?

(Please keep your responses short to reduce your frankly insufferable insomniability)

I am confused as to why the beautiful woman only gets 3% laughter possibilities. Couldn't she, like, say something stupid that you could laugh at? At LEAST?

Seriously, for $45, I expect an "I personally believe that US Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps," AT THE VERY MINIMUM.

Oh but wait, that's more than 11 words.
