Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 5


After doing four posts with pictures that show why women live longer than men, I should have known that it would be only a matter of time until more pictures surfaced. And surface they did! I got an e-mail last week with many pictures that weren't part of the ones I had published. In fact, there are enough for two posts! Today's post is the first of the two. These pictures all have something to do with men and their lack of fear (read: sense?) about height and safety.

Not all heights are a problem, and yet falling is still not a good idea, as in this one....

There are other "scaffolds" that could be just a precarious.

Punchlines


This week's post consists of three jokes, each one slightly longer than the previous, but none of them long. Enjoy!

A guy took his airhead girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team's bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked it.

"Oh, I really liked it," she replied, "especially all those players with big muscles, but I just couldn't understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents."

Dumbfounded, her boyfriend asked, "What do you mean?"

"Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was 'Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!' I'm like ... Hellooooooo? It's only 25 cents!!!"

A married couple trying to live up to a snobbish life-style went to a party. The conversation turned to Mozart. "Absolutely brilliant, magnificent, a genius!"

The woman, wanting to join in the conversation, remarked casually, "Ah, Mozart. You're so right. I love him. Only this morning I saw him getting on the No. 5 bus going to Coney Island."

There was a sudden hush, and everyone looked at her. Her husband was mortified. He pulled her away and whispered, "We're leaving right now. Get your coat and let's get our of here."

As they drove home, he kept muttering to himself. Finally his wife turned to him. "You're angry about something."

"Oh really? You noticed?" he sneered. "I've never been so embarrassed in my life! You saw Mozart take the No. 5 bus to Coney Island? Don't you know the No. 5 bus doesn't go to Coney Island?!"

Do We See Eye to Eye?


Since Valentine's Day is next week, I thought I'd do a post with some different aspects on how men and women see things differently.

On Monday of this week, both my second semester French students and second semester German students had a test that included the names of items of clothing and of colors. I enjoyed sharing with them a picture I had seen a while back on how women and men perceive colors differently. I don't endorse everything on the site this came from, but this one was worth sharing.

Color Names for Girls and Guys

I also saw another picture that brought a smile to my face.

HowTheySeeIt

Now on to three jokes that highlight how males and females don't always see eye to eye.

Why Women Live Longer than Men, take 3


This week's iv was all ready to post this morning ... until I received an e-mail last evening from one of my readers. When I saw it, I just knew this had to be this week's iv.

I've done two other posts on Why Women Live Longer than Men and will share the links to them at the end of this post so that you can find them more easily, if you're so inclined.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll not make much commentary on these pictures.

The first several are home handymen using ladders.

Adieu mademoiselle, bonjour madame!


On February 22, 2012, the French Prime Minister François Fillon declared that the word mademoiselle, the French equivalent of "Miss," has been banned from use in official French documents. Many years ago English-speaking countries adopted Ms. to replace both Mrs. and Miss. Germany dropped Fräulein and uses just Frau for all women. French feminists viewed two titles for women as a form of discrimination, pointing out that there is no "mondemoiseau" denoting the single marital status of males.

In a country where linguistic change comes extremely slowly, thanks to the Académie Française — the official French language police that dates all the way back to 1635 — this change is huge! For the time being, it is only on an official, administrative level, but surely the shift will trickle down over time. Here's an example of the three categories of marital status on a non-governmental form.
