What? Huh? I don't think so at least not at these times in America except for the ones that still allow themselves to be bullied.

That kind of mindlessness is what led to the Women's Movement in the '60s and '70s. Does anyone else remember The Feminine Mystique?

Actually, I went to look it up, so babe could read it, and found this: The Good Wife's Guide at snopes.com. It might be a fake.

I'm sensing a pattern here, Stacy!!!
What a bunch of hoowee!
It must have worked for my mother though. She was 3 months prego with me in May 1955!
(Thanks, ma.)

Uh, I don't get the joke! This is the way it is at our house everyday, with a couple of exceptions

1) If I had a ribbon in my hair my when my wife came home she would probably assume..... #2 (see below)

2) I were a little "gay" (not that theres anything wrong with that!)

Other than that, sounds like a normal day at Smoke Kings house!!!!

LOL, getting these emails from a disgruntled, married friend It is realyl ticking her off, but, I'm finding them quite hurmorous!! LOL
GG, if that article is fake, it doesn't take from what was believed back then, I know, my grandmother loves to tell me about things from her times When they had family reunions, how the women used to "fetch" the water and do ALL the cooking and cleaning outside, while the men sat around joking and drinking not in THIS century, buddy, ROFLMBO!! But, guys these days love the grills too much for that to happen anyway.

Charlie, tsk tsk

Smoke King, you're too much
