Oh no...oh no...please, oh please don't get me started...

it could be dangerous for all involved...

(words and phrases like 'inferiority' and 'inherent stupidity' and 'too dim to see in the dark' and 'nah - this is all just stereotypical rubbish....yet....' spring to mind...)

Get what?

Some get it, get ointment for it and it's over!

Some get it, can't decide what to do with it and leave it sitting on a shelf.

Some get it but keep 'clicking the remote' so they never fully see it!

Some get it but are too (nice)(unconcerned) to tell you they get it.

Why is it, my best friends are all men? I truly prefer them to women friends...just a thought thrown in here!

Reliable Exterminators?  Hmmm...well, since I reckon most of them are male, that seems a slight contradiction in terms....

OK I offer myself up as a case study for mankind. I am the anti lad. If you are looking for sesitivity, nurturing kindness understanding care a warm heart then look no further than me. Don't complain about the wine until you have tried the finest. I say these words without the slightest hint of ego, i am also humble.

Men are a mystery, that is for sure!
I'm trying to figure them out.
But then again, I really don't know what for!
Of that, my friend, I have no doubt!

There's magic and moments and pain and delay
which makes it all VERY confusing.
But then again, often, it really is something
which I find is quite so amusing.

Why don't they get it? Perhaps they should ASK!
Or maybe they don't really want it.
Getting it, Nan, is a difficult task!
So, many of them non-chalant it.

I can't really answer this question you pose.
I am guessing my mind's on vacation.
The only thing I know is what I suppose,
it has something to do with translation.

I truly believe that we speak different tongues,
but then that is what they prob'ly hope for!
And then they don't "get it" and then they're amazed....

and yet it is US that they grope for!!!

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat & drink beer all day.
