"Because you see the potential in every child . . . " unless that child is a girl.



Hey! The potential to be pretty, clean a good house, make a man happy and cook a good meal is potential too you know!


What's that? Sorry, I was busy quitting my job because I realized it was distracting me from my true potential of serving my husband.

This.

I dunno nothing about this stuff, but if any of you guys want to share this with other places, I don't mind. I'm glad you all found it as amusing as I did.

I don't know why I get random stuff like this in the mail, but lately I've also been getting clothing catalogs that are obviously aimed at 60 year old cat ladies. Not sure what this says about me.

Don't worry though -- I love him, so he's a friend and food!

Notice that tampons are "clean" protection, while pads are just "absorbent." amazing how many ways they managed to make a single advertorial offensive.

(1) Well done raspberrycomlaint.

I'm so glad I saw this at 4:55 on a Friday evening... now I know I don't have to bother coming back to work on Monday. I don't belong here anyway!

So much awesomeness. I was just complaining to my mom about sexism in the workplace, so I needed the laugh. Really, I should just stop working and commit myself full-time to my one mission in life: finding a man and fulfilling his every desire.

What great commentary!

I hate "personalized just for YOU" coupon booklets. Apparently, I eat nothing but meat and like my house/body to smell like Spring Breeze. Oh, and I have 20 dogs and cats and feed them nothing but treats. And these are supposedly based off my purchases recorded by using my store card.

I do find freshness irresistable.

You should ask your wife, FF. Preferably between bites of whatever she is hand-feeding you tonight.


Yeah, it's probably something like that. Whatever.

Spend the day scrubbing the house, so it is welcoming for my husband. It's so hard for him, having to go out and work every day so we can put food on the table. I always make sure to be waiting by the door (in heels!) so I can give him a hug when he gets home.

I'm sorry, but you are doing this wrong. Women can't wear pants. Please. Also, I thought husbands liked to be greeted with a cocktail or something before their hand-fed dinners?

Seriously, though, I love you RC

At the end of the day, I get supper on the table. My husband refuses to use utensils. He says that's what I'm here for, and makes me hand feed him his supper, one bite at a time. I just feel so proud that I can be useful to him. That's a woman's job.

I will bear this in mind when my partner gets home, because I want to be all the woman that I can be (and maybe get a discount on my adult diapers while I'm at it)!

Thanks, honey! And since you chew my slippers so they're just the right softness when I come home, you won't need the SlipperSoft™ lotion on p. 12!

There seems to be one thing missing from this:

Image

You won't have a husband to hand-feed or father your little league team if you neglect this important wifely duty. So why are there no coupons for feminine daintiness products? It's like they are just teasing you with the promise of a perfect life, but they leave out the MOST IMPORTANT COUPON.

This is such an important point. I mean, I shove the mop up there, just to make sure I haven't missed any spots; a happy, successful relationship takes work, ladies!

This all seems so ridiculous and yet in a current rape trial, defense is apparently trying to say that the woman bruised her own cervix while showering. (see Tofulish's thread in Parlor). I think I need illustrated directions for cervix scrubbing because I'm vague on the mechanics.

Gee...funny how I never had occasion to realize it before, but "cervix" and "scrubbing" are two words that should never, ever appear together. Ever.
