  1. My BIL's rebuttal: This was funny and I enjoyed it but I need to prepare the rebuttal. The problem starts with the fact that moms set all these rules for themselves and don't know when to stop. Rather than try to win at someone else's rules I choose to follow Captain Kirk in the Kobayashi Maru (google it or ask a man who watches Star Trek) CHANGE THE RULES. Here's how it should work. 1. Just have two kids (one maybe even better) Don't ask for three or four or more and then complain about the work. 2. One sport or dance or music. Not all three and not more than one at a time. Maybe not even when the other siblings are doing theirs. 3. Get over the socks on the floor and the dust in the corner. Clothes aren't dirty just because you sat at your office desk for 8 hours in them. 4. Elementary kids shouldn't have homework in the first place. There's plenty of time in life to take work home. Older kids can do it themselves that's why it's homework. Trust me it'll work just fine. I got along this way and still graduated college with a very high GPA even though I didn't do math homework as an eight year old. 5. Ask someone else to pay the bills if it doesn't get paid they'll find out soon enough. (Not someone outside the family, I mean the spouse. But don't do this without letting the other guy know you dropped it). 6. Forget everyone else's birthday, anniversary, except your kids, your mom and dad, and maybe a brother or sister. Your parents could have helped if they remembered item #1. If you can't remember it then you don't need it. Forget about keeping a calendar with B-days of everyone you ever met, extended family, cousins, 2nd cousins, long lost aunts and uncles, the guy two chairs down at the office, etc. If you can't handle that then at least forget the card just give them a call and call it good. (Mom and Grandma always get a card.) 7. I've been to urgent care and the ER for stitches till midnight too. 8. Buy the cupcakes on the way to the function. 9. Forget the shaved legs, makeup, jewelry, etc. Wear pants! Buy shirts with glittery thingy's already sewn on. 10. Sorry--can't help with the cramps although I generally have an unexplained pain in the ass around once a month too. I don't get the comment about mood swings though. I thought this was normal. 11. Skip the school meetings and church. Spend the time teaching your kids something you want them to know. Just my way of seeing things!! Hee Hee
  2. Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks. Each kid will play two sports and either take music or dance classes. There is no fast food. Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, and complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills with not enough money. In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week. Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time--no emailing. Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment. He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care. He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function. Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times. The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done. The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, adorn himself with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed. During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties. They must attend weekly school meetings, church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting. They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am. A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information: each child's birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size and doctor's name. Also the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child's favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink, favorite toy, biggest fear and what they want to be when they grow up. The kids vote them off the island based on performance. The last man wins only if...he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice. If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years eventually earning the right to be called Mother!

    A Game

    This is creepy!Think of a letter between A and W. Repeat it out loud as you scroll down. Keep going . . . Don't stop .. .. Think of ananimal that begins with that letter. Repeat it out loud as you scroll down Think of either aman's/woman's name that begins with the last letter in the animals name Almost there........ Now count out the letters in that name on the fingers of the hand you are not using to scroll down. Take the hand you FIRST counted with and hold it out in front of you at face level . Look at your palm very closely and notice the lines in your hand . Do the lines take the form of the first letter in the persons name?! . Of course not....... NowTAKE THAT HAND ANDsmack yourself in the head, get a life, and quit playing stupid e-mail games! . Don't tell the secret to others, just send them this e-mail! Smile & have a great day! OH, Gotcha!!!!!!!!!

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail? *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 18.
