Humorous? Or Sexist?

I came across this image on some buried FaceBook page a while ago. It made me chuckle - although not out loud. It has to be really hysterical for me to do that when I'm alone. So, I downloaded it thinking I would share it with others at some point.

That 'some point' never seemed to come, and I realized I was reluctant to post it because the punch line is perhaps sexist.

So what do you think? Is it funny, and I just need to get over my concerns? Is it sexist and should never see the light of day? Somewhere in between? I suppose there is a continuum along which we might judge how offensive something is. Where do we draw the line? And when should we feel it incumbent on us to challenge the humor?

What say you?
