A collection of men's thoughts on their wives...
  • "My wife has an uncanny way of standing between me and the television screen. Bases loaded, two strikes, three balls. The crowd goes wild, the pitch flies, and all I can see is her butt." --Howard, Dodge City, Kan.
  • "My wife was furious when I got up early once and made her breakfast. Called me controlling. How dare I decide that My Wife would eat breakfast, let alone what she'd have?" --Ted, Wexford, Pa.
  • "What's mine is hers. I buy her negligees; My Wife sleeps in my T- shirts. When My Wife's cold My Wife wears my wool socks to bed, never her own. My Wife steals my half-used razors; new ones are too sharp. My Wife even wears my boxers. I'm tempted to switch to briefs just to see what she'd do." --Dave, Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
  • "You can hear her eat soup from the next room." --Bruce, Bridgewater, N.J.
  • "My wife thinks everyone should be a vegetarian. During meals, My Wife asks people how they can eat dead cows, or if they know that their pork chops used to be smarter than their dogs." --Miles, Shreveport, La.
  • "Every so often boom! My wife’s a brunette. Or I come home to a redhead. Actually, I have no idea what her natural color is." --Cary, Seattle
  • "My wife will brush her teeth but she won't go to the dentist. She says she's not afraid of the pain; she just doesn't want to put herself in the hands of any fellow who'd choose to be a dentist. " --Terence, Gary, Ind.
  • "My wife’s stopped shaving her legs. My Wife says that now people will know she's a natural blonde." --Ned, Tucson, Ariz.
  • "My wife takes her half of the bed out of the middle." -Robin, Gladwyne, Pa.
  • "Have you ever seen a woman with green crust and slime smeared over her face, dark holes for her nostrils? Do you think you'd be able to sleep at night, knowing that creature is next to you?" --Arthur, Cedar City, Utah
  • "My wife’s allergic to everything. Her nose is chronically stuffed. If I kissed her on the mouth, she'd suffocate." --Bryan, Toledo, Ohio
  • "My wife wears these false eyelashes. She left 'em lying around and I slammed 'em with my newspaper, tried to kill the damn things. Scared me half to death." --Gordon, Oklahoma City, Okla.
  • "My Wife takes those soaps too seriously. I'll come home and find her in tears because some character died. Or upset that some nonexistent guy's having a fictional affair." --Archie, St. Louis
  • "My Wife will not shop at discount stores or sales. My Wife thinks they're crowded and plebeian. My Wife doesn't even look at the reduced rack, other than, perhaps, for gifts for my mother." --Conrad, Wilmington, Del.
  • "It annoys her that our children look like me." --James, New Orleans
  • "With five kids, I don't have time to complain about . don't have time to notice her." --Bob, Charleston, W.Va.

A woman's husband dies leaving her $20,000.

After everything is done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend that there is no money left.

The friend says, "How can that be? You told me he had $20,000 a few days before he died. How could you be broke?"

The widow says, "Well, the funeral cost me $6,000? And of course, I had to make the obligatory donation to the church, so that was another $2,000. The rest went for the memorial stone."

The friend says, "$12,000 for the memorial stone? My God, how big was it?

The widow says, "Three carats."

A TV reporter did a story on gender roles in Iraq several years before the Gulf War.

She noted that women customarily walked a few feet behind their husbands. In a follow-up story, she returned to Iraq recently and observed that men now walked several yards behind their wives.

The reporter approached one of the Iraqi women and said, "This is marvelous! Can you tell the free world just what it was that enabled women here to achieve this total reversal of roles?"

"Land mines," replied the woman.

Larry wakes up at home with a huge hangover...

He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Larry looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean.

So's the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table: "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you." So he goes to the kitchen, and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.

Larry asks, "Son, what happened last night?"

His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious, broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."

Confused, Larry asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"

His son replies, "Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you said, "Lady, leave me alone, I'm married'!"

Grandpa's Words of Wisdom
  • Whether a man winds up with the nest egg or a goose egg depends a lot on the kind of chick he marries.
  • Trouble in marriage often starts when a man gets so busy earnin' his salt that he forgets his sugar.
  • Too many couples marry for better or for worse, but not for good.
  • When a man marries a woman, they become one, but the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
  • If a man has enough "horse sense" to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never be an old nag.
  • Judgin' from the specimens they pick for husbands, it's no wonder that brides often blush.
  • On anniversaries the wise husband always forgets the past...but never the present.

Words Women Use
  • FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
  • FIVE MINUTES: This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.
  • NOTHING: This means "something", and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine."
  • GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows): This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"
  • GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows): This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care." You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
  • LOUD SIGH: This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing."
  • SOFT SIGH: Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content.
  • THAT'S OKAY: This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a Raised Eyebrow.
  • GO AHEAD: At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
  • PLEASE DO: This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay." THANKS: A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome.
  • THANKS A LOT: This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing"

A man was in no shape to drive, so he wisely left his car parked and walked home.

As he was walking unsteadily along, he was stopped by a policeman.

"What are you doing out here at 2 A.M.?" said the officer.

"I'm going to a lecture." The man said.

"And who is going to give a lecture at this hour?" the cop asked.

"My wife." said the man.

A man goes to the doctor and complains that his wife can't hear him.

"How bad is it?" the doctor asks.

"I have no idea", says the husband.

"Well, please test her. Say something 20 feet away, and if she doesn't hear you, get closer and say the same thing until she does. That way we'll have an idea of her range of hearing loss."

So the man goes home and sees his wife in the kitchen chopping up vegetables for dinner.

From 20 feet: "What are we having for dinner?" No answer.

From 10 feet, same thing.

From 5 feet, same thing.

Finally he's standing right behind her. "What's for dinner?"

She turns around, looks at him and says "For the fourth time, beef stew!"

In my next life .... I wanna be a female bear

If you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.

Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that, too.

If you're a bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.

If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them, too. I could deal with that.

If you're a bear, your mate expects you to wake up growling. He expects that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.

Yup ..... I wanna be a bear.
