You had to finally go and locate my ex, didn't you?

Bastards.

My first college GF.

Well, that is a pretty good stereotype of a woman voicing her views on male perfection :)

PS: I don'r understand the intent of the final still shot

I nailed it, until the flying part.


Groundhog Day covered the same ground.

"he's got to be really good looking, but not know it"

Given that men, especially younger men, are driven in no small part by the desire for bouncy-bouncy, no man that is good looking, ie can walk into a room and turn even the hot chick's heads, doesn't know about it. For that rare, non-gay, good looking guy with that kind of cache, he may ACT like he doesn't know it, but he, and every other guy around him, knows it.

Where women get around a beautiful, sexy member of their gender and somehow instinctively get catty and self-ashamed, men tend to look at another man with great looks and think, however begrudgingly, "damn...I bet he gets laid...a lot".

If a guy was indeed all those things she described, what would he need her for?

LOL,

same behavior with clothes. See the 2 women wearing the same general dress staring at each other with daggers in their eyes.

see the 2 men with suits that resemble each other as one goes up to the other and says, "nice suit" and the other smiles :)

haha good one Althouse- thanks for the morning guffaws! [she said she wants a man who guffaws didn't she?]

Release. Although, you'd have to be careful. Larry Niven once wrote a piece called "Man Of Steel Woman Of Kleenex" in which he assumed all of Superman's powers (and body functions) were amped up to the level we usually associate with him. He thus concluded that the velocity his sperm would reach coming out would kill the woman involved if she weren't likewise allergic to kryptonite.

That is very funny.

Because humor is often from pain and tragedy and trust me there are women out there like that. They tend to end up alone.

Pogo said...

@Scott M
I meant "...more than once".
Heh.

There have been many changes in our culture, some mandated by law, creating more equality between the sexes. That is a good thing. I have a daughter and it is a better world for her than it was for my sisters.

That said, comedy is based on hard and uncomfortable truths. And, despite all these changes, there's a reason men still own just about everything. This hilarious video helps explain why.

I love it!!!

The former feminist issues of inequality have so completely disappeared and indeed shifted in the other direction--toward the disenfranchisement and demeaning of males and maleness--that smart women are now becoming ironic and funny about their whining and their sense of entitlement for special treatment and goodies that they haven't earned.

But like in baseball a 330 batting average will impress an older woman. Never lose hope. You know she does remind me of an English lady acquaintance who just insists that whatever she wants to be true is true...everyone just needs to get with the program with her as the center of attention.

That's me, except the penis part, and I even fly. But, I'm terminally single so the question remains: What do women want?

I never saw those videos before. I watched some of the others and they're pretty damned funny. Thanks

Scott M said...

If you have a "cache" you don't need "cachet", is that correct?

-he "t" on my keyboard is broken. I have to wri-e them all on -he screen with a pen. Gemmie a break.

rdkraus said...

So, that's what women want.

I took notes.

Note to self: Do not use all of penis all the time.

Pogo said...

I figured what women generally wanted involved the opposite of me.

Pogo said...

E.g., I was breast-fed on falsies.

OK I got a real good laugh out of that one. Competition was...er...stiff...but, Thread Winner!

She's no threat to Saki.

No, both are good, but the importance of cache seems to have gone out with DOS.

And the perfect woman is Salma Hayek.

E Buzz said...

I'm reminded of Libby Wolfson and Sue Bopper Simpson...

I'm taking my own head and screwing it on right...

And if you have cash, you don't need to put up with women like that.

William said...

Many women believe that with proper counselling (i.e. nagging) their man can take on many of these characteristics.

I just had to add that the verification word right now is "thingl."

Does it count if I have to use an airplane to fly?

Well, 35 year and 10 months too late for her anyway. I'm already married.
