Men versus Women
Men and women are not alike. Sure, you thought you already knew that. But now we have conclusive proof! After countless hours of surveys and studies on the following topics, these facts have emerged.
First, a man does not call a relationship a relationship - He refers to it as "that time when Suzie and I were boinking on a semi-regular basis."
When a relationship ends, a women will cry and pour her heart out to her girlfriends, and she will write a poem entitled "All Men Are Idiots." Then she will get on with her life.
A man has a little more trouble letting go. Six months after the break up - at 3 am early on a Sunday morning - he will call and say "I just wanted to let you know that you ruined my life, and I'll never forgive you, and I hate you, and your a total floozy. But I want you to know there's always a chance for us."
This is known as the "I Hate You/I Love You" drunken phone call, that 99% of all men have made at least once. There are community collages that offer courses to help men get over this need; alas, these classes rarely prove effective.
Women prefer 30-45 minutes of forplay.
Men prefer 30-45 seconds of forplay. Men consider driving back to her place as a part of the forplay.
Women mature much faster than men.
Most 17 year old females can function as adults. Most 17 year old males are still trading baseball cards and giving each other wedgies after gym class. This is why most high school romances rarely work out.
Women look good in hats. Men look like dinks.
Lets say a small group of men and women are in a room watching television and an episode of the "Three Stooges" comes on. Immediately, the men get very excited - they will laugh uproariously, and even try to imitate the actions of Curly, man's favorite Stooge.
The women will roll their eyes, groan, and wait it out.
To their credit, men do not decorate their penmanship. They just chicken-scratch. Women use scented, colored stationery and they dot their "i's" with circles and hearts. Women use ridiculously large loops in their "p's" and "g's."
It is a royal pain to read a note from a women. Even when she's dumping you, she'll put a smiley face at the end of the note.
A man has at most six items in his bathroom - a toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn.
The average number of items in a typical woman's bathroom is 437. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.
Men's magazines often feature pictures of naked women.
Women's magazines also feature pictures of naked women. This is because the female body is a beautiful work of art, while the male body is hairy and lumpy and should not be seen in the light of day.
A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes out and buys these things.
A man waits until the only items left in his fridge are a half of a lemon, and something turning green. Then he goes groceries shopping. He buys everything that looks good. Buy the time he reaches the check out counter, his cart is packed tighter than the Clampett's car on The Beverly Hillbillies. Of course this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane.
When a man says he's ready to go out, it means he's ready to go out.
When a woman says she's ready to go out, it means she WILL be ready to go out, as soon as she finds her other earring, finishes putting on her makeup...
When preparing for work, a woman will put on a Mondi wool suit, and then slip into Reebok sneakers. She will carry her dress shoes in a plastic bag from Saks. When she arrives at work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later she will kick off her shoes because her feet are under her desk.
A man wears one pair of shoes for the entire day.
Leg warmers are sexy. A woman, even if she's walking the dog or doing the dishes, are allowed to wear leg warmers. She can wear them any time she wants.
A man can only wear leg warmers if he's auditioning for the "Gimme The Ball" number in "A Chorus Line."
Women love cats.
Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.
Men are vain; they will check themselves out in the mirror.
Women are ridiculous; they will check out their reflections in any shiny surface mirrors, spoons, store windows, toasters, Joe Garagiola's head...
Women use garages to park their cars and store their lawn mowers.
Men use garages for many things. They hang license plates in garages, they watch TV in garages, and they build useless wooden things in garages.
For women, their favorite scene is when Clark Gable kisses Vivien Leigh for the first time in "Gone With The Wind."
For men, it's when Jimmy Cagney shoves a grapefruit in Mae Clark's face in "Public Enemy."
Women look nice when they wear jewelry.
A man can get away with wearing one ring, and that's it. Any more than that, and he will look like a lounge singer named Vic.
When a woman reaches menopause, she goes through variety of complicated emotional, psychological, and biological changes. The nature and degree of the changes varies with the individual.
Menopause in a man provokes a uniform reaction. He buys aviator glasses, a snazzy French cap and leather driving gloves, and goes shopping for an expensive foreign sports car.
Men see the telephone as a communications tool. They use the telephone to send short messages to other people.
A women can visit her girlfriend for two weeks and upon returning home, she will call the same friend and they will talk for three hours.
Low BlowsLet's say a man and a women are watching a boxing match on television, oh and one of the fighters is felled by a low blow.
The woman says "Oh, gee, that must have hurt."
The man doubles over and actually feels the pain.
If a woman is out driving and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings, she will stop at a gas station and ask for directions.
Men consider this to be a sign of weakness. A man will never stop to ask for directions. Men will drive in a circle for hours, all the while saying things like, "Looks like I've found a new way to get there," and, "I know I'm in the neighborhood. I recognize that White Hen store."
Women will sometimes admit making a mistake.
The last man who admitted that he was wrong was Gen. George Custer.
Women like Richard Gere because he's sexy in a dangerous way.
Men hate Richard Gere because he reminds them of that slick guy who works out at the health club and dates only married women.
Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about soccer games and dentist appointments and romances and best friends and favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, get the mail...
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
Nudity In Movies
Every actress in the history of movies has to do a nude scene. This is because every movie in the history of movies has been produced by men.
The only actor who has ever appeared nude in the movies is Richard Gere. This is another reason why men hate him.
Men think David Letterman is the funniest guy on the face of the earth. Women think he is a mean, dorky guy who always has a bad haircut.

Men love to talk about politics, but they often forget to do political things such as voting.
Women are very happy that another generation of Kennedys is growing up and getting into politics, because they will be able to campaign for them and cry on their election night.
In the locker rooms men talk about three things: money, football, and women. They exaggerate about money, they don't know football nearly as well as they think they do, and they fabricate stories about women.
Women talk about one thing in the locker room - sex. Not in abstract terms, either. They're graphic and technical, and they never lie.
Women do laundry every couple of days.
A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do his laundry. When he is finaly out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt insideout, rent a U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the laundrymat, and expect to meet a beautiful woman while he is there.
When remniniscing about weddings, women talk about the "ceremony."
Men talk about "the batchelor party."

Women wear strange socks. They are cut way below the ankle, have pictures of clouds on them, and have big fuzzy balls on the back.
Little girls love to play with toys. Then, when they reach the age of 11 or 12, they loose interest.
Men never grow out of their obsession with toys. As they get older, their toys simply become more expensive and impractical. Examples of men's toys: miniature TV's, car phones, complicated juicers and blenders, graphic equalizers, small robots that serve coctails on demand, video games, and anything that blinks, beeps, and requires at least six "D" batteries to operate.
A woman will ask a man to water her plants while she goes on vacation.
The man will water the plants. The woman returns five days later, to an apartment full of dead plants. No one knows why this happens.
Some men look good with mustaches: Tom Sellek and Burt Reynolds.
There are no women who look good with mustaches.

But if Mike, Dave and Jack go out for a brewski, they will affectionately refer to each other as Bullet-Head, Peanut Brain, and Useless.
