Ellen DeGeneres jokes, “Why do we need gay-dar, we have TMZ to tell us who's gay.”

During the opening monologue of her Ellen daytime talk show, the popular comedian poked fun at a study which concluded that gay-dar is 60 percent effective.

“This is absolutely true, not making it up, I'm sharing with you what I read. Recently, the National Science Foundation did a study to see if gay-dar is real. You know what gay-dar is? For those of you who do not know what gay-dar is, it's a term used to describe our ability to tell if someone is gay or not. And if you're really good at it, you can tell if they're straight but they tried stuff at camp.”

“According to the study, gay-dar is only 60 percent accurate. That's ten percent more than 50-50. Sixty percent is nothing to be proud of. Sixty percent of the time I know which Olson twin I'm talking to.”

“I don't like to label people. The only thing I label is my lunch in the refrigerator here at work. I write lesbian on it, that way everybody knows,” she joked. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
