    I Just received this in a email from a friend of mine a little while ago and thought it might provide at least a little laugh on what seems (at least to me) to be an emotionally down day here at BYC.

    Men Are Just Happier People ...

    What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name
    stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of
    themselves.
    Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can
    never get pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. Heck,
    you can wear NO shirt to a water park.

    Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You
    never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is
    just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to
    turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character.
    Wedding dress: $5000.00. Tux rental: $100.00. People never stare at your
    chest when you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered
    belch is not only appreciated by your friends, but practically
    expected.
    New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all
    the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know
    stuff about tanks.

    A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all
    your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of
    Thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can
    still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three
    pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap
    problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.

    Everything on your face stays its original color. The same
    hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your
    face
    and neck. You can play with toys all your life. Your belly usually
    hides your hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes one color for all
    seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You
    can "do" your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice
    concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for
    25 relatives on December 24th in 25 minutes.

    No wonder men are happier. [​IMG]

    How about this one.....
    BBQ RULES
    We are about to enter the summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity, as it's the only type of cooking a 'real' man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

    When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

    Routine...

    (1) The woman buys the food.
    (2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
    (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

    Here comes the important part:

    (4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

    More routine....

    (5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
    (6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

    Important again:

    (7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

    More routine....

    (8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
    (9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

    And most important of all:
    (10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
    (11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off." And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women....

    Women do have one advantage over men. Their feet are shorter, making it easier for them to get close to the kitchen sink.

    They have another advantage over here. The kitchen worktops, sinks and cookers are built lower to the ground to suit the average Thai stature. I'd love to cook and wash up but I get an excruciating back ache one minute into the job.
