02/27/2005: Thought for the Day:
Apropos of Karen's several posts mentioning "what if women ruled the world", I'll share something a friend recently forwarded to me:
If Men Ruled The WorldActually, I feel compelled to comment on one of these items: "Ally McNaked"... WTF? Somebody actually thinks that Calista Flockhart is attractive (well, someone besides Harrison Ford, who I'm convinced has gone senile)? Is there really a subculture of American men who'd get into concentration camp victim porno? Scary....
Any fake phone number a girl gave you would automatically forward your call to her real number.
Nodding and looking at your watch would be deemed an acceptable response to "I love you."
Hallmark would make "Sorry, what was your name again?" cards.
When your girlfriend really needed to talk to you during the game, she'd appear in a little box in the corner of the screen during a time-out.
Breaking up would be a lot easier. A smack to the ass and a "Nice hustle, you'll get 'em next time" would pretty much do it.
Birth control would come in ale or lager.
Each year, your raise would be pegged to the fortunes of the NFL team of your choice.
The funniest guy in the office would get to be CEO.
"Sorry I'm late, but I got really wasted last night" would be an acceptable excuse for tardiness.
At the end of the workday, a whistle would blow and you'd jump out your window and slide down the tail of a brontosaurus and right into your car like Fred Flintstone.
It'd be considered harmless fun to gather 30 friends, put on horned helmets, and go pillage a nearby town.
Lifeguards could remove citizens from beaches for violating the "public ugliness" ordinance.
Tanks would be far easier to rent.
Garbage would take itself out.
Instead of beer belly, you'd get "beer biceps."
Instead of an expensive engagement ring, you could present your wife-to-be with a giant foam hand that said, "You're #1!"
Valentine's Day would be moved to February 29th so it would only occur in leap years.
On Groundhog Day, if you saw your shadow, you'd get the day off to go drinking.
St. Patrick's Day, however, would remain exactly the same. But it would be celebrated every month.
"Cops" would be broadcast live, and you could phone in advice to the pursuing cops Or to the crooks.
Two words: Ally McNaked.
Regis and Kathie Lee would be chained to a cement mixer and pushed off the Golden Gate Bridge for the most lucrative pay-per-view event in world history.
The only show opposite "Monday Night Football" would be "Monday Night Football From A Different Camera Angle."
It would be perfectly legal to steal a sports car, as long as you returned it the following day with a full tank of gas.
Every man would get four real "Get Out of Jail Free" cards per year.
Faucets would run "Hot," "Cold," and "100 proof."
Daisy Duke shorts would never again go out of style.
Telephones would automatically cut off after 30 seconds of conversation.
