I got this in an email! LOVE IT!


Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.

Each kid will play two sports and take either music or dance classes.

There is no fast food.

Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills with not enough money.

In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week.

Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time--no emailing.

Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment,
a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment.

He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care.

He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function.

Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside, and keeping it presentable at all times.

The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.

The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, adorn
themselves with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished, and eyebrows groomed.

During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.
They must attend weekly school meetings and church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.

They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information:
each child's birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size, doctor's name, the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth,
and length of labor, each child's favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink, favorite toy, biggest fear, and what they want to be when they grow up.

The kids vote them off the island based on performance.

The last man wins only if.. he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice.

If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years, eventually earning the right
to be called Mother!
My husband can do most of the things on the list. But the lines that I quoted from you, I would fail.

I don't watch a lot of tv, but I don't wait until the kids are asleep to turn it on. I do not know my children's size and I forget who weighed what at birth. Everything else my hubby knows also.

I do not decorate well. I am a slob. My house is only clean enough not to be a health hazard. Unlike most women, I do not care about decorating. My house is mismatched but comfortable. I kill every flower that I plant.(although I have luck with herbs)

I don't wear jewelry and I don't put on makeup everyday. I wear comfortable shoes unless I am forced not to. I don't do my nails. I do shave but my hubby does also.

I guess that I don't have the right to be called Mother either.

I guess that I will tell the kids to call me Dad.

I love that one! I got one in my email and I wish I had saved it, it was the opposite of that for women, but it wouldn't have been appropriate to post it. That is the one time I would survivor!!
