Guys are guys

Saw this on the Facebook. And, I know the lady in the picture. And her daughter.



Lisa had just completed a 5K, and posted this pic of herself after the run.

But did you notice it? A friend of her daughter did, and sent this text:


<< Hey, look at this.
>> What
<< All those guys checking your mom out

Guys. What can I say. We're guys.

I don't understand why you ladies put up with us like you do, but I'm glad you do. Thanks, ladies. Thanks.

  2. A coworker of me calls me lame all the time because we'll go out and he'll point out an attractive woman and my answer is always the same:

    "Eh, she's OK. My wife's hotter."

    She says I'm prejudiced in such matters. I disagree.

  3. She so checkable.

  4. @3 That is the awesomest answer ever. Smart guy. :)

  5. I am reminded of the words of Larry Miller - "If you women only knew the way we were thinking about you, you would never...stop slapping us."

  6. Eh, she's OK. Anonymiss is hotter.

  7. I'm reminded of Seinfeld:
    "You don't understand. This happens on a molecular level. We're like some weird fish whose eyes operate independently of the body."

  8. Conservative women are hot. Hot conservative women are really hot.

  9. Come on, Basil. Don't mince words. How HOT are they?

  10. @11 - I'll field that one:

    They make that first oozing bite of sauce & cheese from a freshly-microwaved Hot Pocket seem like a frozen-ammonia lake on one of Saturn's moons.

  11. @12 Uh HUH.

    How...utterly...um...

    Flattering!

    I think...

  12. @13 - Apparently SOMEone has never bit carelessly into a newly-nuked Hot Pocket and felt their tongue start sizzling in tomato sauce.

  13. #ConservativeWomenAreSoHot...

    ...that Conservative men are known to drool pure Oxytocin.

    ...that Conservative men's brains entirely light-up in MRI scans.

    ...that they can be impregnated only with hot, Conservative plasma."

    (I'll stop there because I don't want to get in trouble.)

  14. @14 Nope.

    I'm much more careful with my tongue. :P

    I prefer to eat homemade food. Or chef made. I don't mind eating out.

  15. Don't let 'em fool you: They wouldn't have us any other way.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Conservative men can be pretty hot, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. So...my sister Unny...who looks just like me but is a crazy liberal...

    She would...*not* be hot?

    ReplyDelete
  18. @20 That is very correct - nothing uglier than stupidity.

    ReplyDelete
  19. @20: No, because she has the word "Liberal" plastered on her forehead.

    Do you have to ask?

    ReplyDelete
  20. @19 - What about conservative men with soft, fuzzy beards?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anonymiss:

    I always thought you were the hot sister.

  23. @26 We women get to choose what we are, yes.

    But the guys can choose whether or not they like it. :)

  25. It's very possible that Janeane is one of those HOT Conservative women. Or men.

    What am I saying!!!!UGH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. @29 How am I being submissive? I choose who I am. If they like it, they like it.

    I recognize that men and women are inherently different. I admire the qualities that men have that I do not. I can still be smart and strong and embrace my femininity.

    Someday, I hope to have a relationship with a man where we share our different strengths with one another. One in which we each compromise.

    Oppression is something I understand. It is not the same as compromise.

    You seem very unhappy. I feel sorry for you.

  27. @30 Oh my gosh, Jimmy. Are you ok?

    Need a lemon water? :P

    ReplyDelete
  28. @32: Oh, I'm fine. But I do enjoy Janeane's faux comments. You realize that she's not a "troll," per se, but an obviously well-constructed facsimile of the real Janeane. And, he/she is very funny and getting funnier by the month.

    Lemon water is fine. Thank you. I will add some good spirits - in the spirit that was intended!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I second Jimmy's assessments.

    Janeane and water are best diluted with Scotch.

  30. "Male Visualist Preconceptions" gives the MVP award a new aspect.

    ReplyDelete
  31. @31 Oh I know :)

    I was just playin' along.

    She rarely has a woman give her a piece of her mind :P

  32. "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the hottest conservative woman of all?"

    ReplyDelete
  33. "My Queen, you are the fairest here, it's true.
    Ann Coulter WISHES she were as hot as you."

    ReplyDelete
  34. @38 Your declaration is delightful, My Doting Despot.

  35. "She smiled at him.
    And then it arose and struck Vimes that, in her own special category, she was quite beautiful; this was the category of all the women, in his entire life, who had ever thought he was worth smiling at."
    - Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards! 1989.

    That's what does it for me. Just sayin...
