The Rules For Men Explained

For thousands of years, men have tried to understand the rules when dealing with women. Finally, this merit/demerit guide will help you to understand just how it works. Remember, in the world of romance, one single rule applies: Make the woman happy.

The Super Rooster

An Alabama chicken farmer has a real problem, the flock is not producing. So his buddy sends him to Super Rooster Corp

"These birds, says the salesman, will solve all yer problems, genetically modified."

So the bird gets delivered and released into the hen house. Thereafter the noise is louder than the Superbowl, feathers clucking an all.

The farmer keeps watch from a safe distance. One day doing his rounds he sees a hole in the henhouse, then amazed: watches the Rooster chasing ducks around the pond. Later that afternoon all the ganders are dashing with the rooster in pursuit.

A week passes by, the ducks chickens and geese are getting some peace, in spite of Two Apache helicopters flying about.

After testing his new spotting scope, Jed the farmer jumps into his pickup on seeing a familiar shape out in the field.

The rooster is flat on his back, motionless, beak in the dirt.

"Well boy looks like you done yerself t' death."

A squinting eye opens. "Nope m just waiting fer them two critters to land!"

Wrong Address

After being nearly snowbound for two weeks last winter, a Seattle man departed for his vacation in Miami Beach, where he was to meet his wife the next day at the conclusion of her business trip to Minneapolis. They were looking forward to pleasant weather and a nice time together.

Unfortunately, there was some sort of mix up at the boarding gate, and the man was told he would have to wait for a later flight. He tried to appeal to a supervisor but was told the airline was not responsible for the problem and it would do no good to complain.

Upon arrival at the hotel the next day, he discovered that Miami Beach was having a heat wave, and its weather was almost as uncomfortably hot as Seattle's was cold. The desk clerk gave him a message that his wife would arrive as planned. He could hardly wait to get to the pool area to cool off, and quickly sent his wife an e-mail, but due to his haste, he made an error in the address.

His message therefore arrived at the home of an elderly preacher's wife whose even older husband had died only the day before. When the grieving widow opened her e-mail, she took one look at the monitor, out an anguished scream, and fell to the floor dead.

Her family rushed to her room where they saw this message on the screen:


Dearest wife,

Departed yesterday as you know. Just now got checked in.

Some confusion at the gate. Appeal was denied. Received confirmation of your
arrival tomorrow.

Your loving husband.

Scottish Hospital Ward

Dougie telephones his friend who is in hospital.

His friend says," you'll have to get me out of here, it's so noisy I can't sleep, even one of the staff recites poetry when I'm trying to sleep, and the foods awful, its so repetitive: porridge and haggis - they must have got a load of it cheap."

Dougie replies, "doesn't sound right, what ward are you in",

The answer comes back, "I'm in the Burns unit."





*For non Scots, google Robert Burns
