There isn't enough Amy Poehler to go around -- we're always left wanting more, more, more of the funny lady. This week, though, we were lucky enough to get more than our usual share: She did a guest spot on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend and was honored last night at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards, where she delivered a fine piece of advice to young girls. (As though she hadn't already done more than her share of that with her kick-ass Web series "Smart Girls at the Party.") You can check out a video roundup of the event below, but this gem from Poehler's speech deserves to be highlighted as our quote of the day/week/forever: "Girls, if boys say something that’s not funny, you don’t have to laugh."
