WOMEN KNOW THEIR PLACEBarbara Walters of Television's 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul , Afghanistan , several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands.She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. From Miss Walter's vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk even further back behind their husbands and are happy to maintain the old custom.Miss Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?"The woman looked Miss Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation, said, "Land mines."The moral of the story is that no matter where you go, behind every man, there's a smart woman.
Oh we women are smart
I stand behind my man when it is time to pay off the credit card!
Thanks for that Harlan, hope your day improves, you are so sweet to cheer us up when you are so stressed hon.
Trying to cheer others up helps with my own anxiety! Especially if someone gets a laugh. I have a "regular" joke provider who sends me some doosies.
Harlan, Thanks for the pick me ups..........I love the jokes too.
The Train RideA man and a woman who have never met before find themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train. After the initial embarrassment and uneasiness, they both go to sleep, the man in the upper berth, and the woman in the lower berth.In the middle of the night the man leans over, wakes the woman and says, "I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly reach over and get me another blanket?"The woman leans out and, with a glint in her eye says, "I have a better idea. Just for tonight let's pretend that we are married."The man happily says, "OK. Brilliant!"The woman says "Good ... get your own blanket."
Good ones Peg.............I edited out some java script that was attached to your posted jokes.
Hope you have a good belly laugh day.
A blonde and a brunette are on opposite sides of a river. The brunette wants to get across.She yells across to the blonde, "Hey, how do I get to the other side?"The blonde shakes her head and yells back - "People like you really piss me off. You ARE on the other side!"
It took me awhile too....haha!
