Ok, I want to know who wrote the rules of life, so I can kick them in the hiney...
Because as far as I'm concerned, the rules as I know them....SUCK!!!

Why CAN'T I have my cake and eat it too?

Dear Wolf pup...the correct phrase is to eat one's cake and have it too. Anyone can have their cake and eat it,but to eat your cake and still have it is the art.As to the rules of life......I have no clue, but I'll bet he was male!

The rules of life were written by a mean old couple in Montana. The sit in their basement and think up these rules...for instance, if you've eaten your cake, it's gone (thus you can't eat your cake and have it too)..they also made the rule that the toilet paper should be pulled the bottom!

What's up?

Chris, you can have your cake and eat it too...just as soon as you stop worrying about the rules.

I'm sure that the rules were made by men as well - but - I've been informed by good authority that women get to change them at will - throughout the game.

That way they can eat their cake and have it too...

What's the use of having a cake if you can't eat it?

If you eat all of yours, steal someone else's (or even better, get them to GIVE it to you!)

Life is what you make of it; as long as you don't deliberately trample any hearts along the way you're good to go (the no-heart-stomping rule is the only one that holds any weight with me.)

"women are allowed to THINK they can change the rules...men just go along with it to humor you"

You see Chris, thats what YOU think. We women have a clever way of letting men think that THEY have all the power, and we cleverly manipulate the rules when they are not looking. (LOL we change the recipe in the cake) That way, men think they have the power, and women know that in all actuality THEY have the power, and everyone is happy.

Besides, Most men are helpless in the kitchen. If they do know how to cook, they would promptly eat their cake afterwards. Many women are too weight consious to devour a whole cake, so we just create cake reserves. There would be no cake if it weren't for women.

Ok, this may change the course of this conversation - I disagree with all the statements about men. My best friends are all men...I prefer having male friends to having female friends.......(now that this can of worms is open........)

PdV- Nearly all my friends are male too. I was of course only joking in my statements, creating ym own little joke stereotype of men. Of course I am not serious, because I HATE stereotypes. Just thought I would clear that up.

'Men do not always have to have the last word '- I'll remind you of that next time I say "I win'. You poor whiny thing you. Stuff yourself with all the cake you want - it's not like it'll make a difference to your royal bonyness - heheheh. As to the rules - dear, there are no rules - it all depends on what era you're living in!

Chris, if you want to know the truth, I did...I confess I wrote the rules of Life,
with the help of a hedgehog and a group of drunk lab mice on a napkin in a pub in the heavenly quaters of Heaven, in fact we were all drunk and it was a silly prank. We never actually thought that it would catch on. The mice went into hiding as politicians because the common misconception is that all politicians are rats when they are actually albino lab mice, the hedge hog set up a small computer company under the alias Bill door but had to change it to Gates in order to avoid being caught up in a tax fraud scandal. Chris I do apologise for any inconvenience caused, just be grateful that we decided to evolve man from apes and not elephant Seals as mouse 012 suggested. Then again are you really going to believe a person who allows mice and hedgehogs to play dice with the universe...thought not..

Ok I gotta agree with PdV just about all my best friends are men too. Most women are just, so well, ummm *****y. That brings me to the question, Chris are you really a woman?...ROTFL...just kidding, just kidding. And as for the rules would someone explain them clearly to me? And that cake thing, is it really cake you men want???
