The Difference Between Men and Women

by duncanr

Let’s say a guy named Roger is attracted to a woman named Elaine. He asks her out to a movie, she accepts, and they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else.

And then one evening . . .

  2. “Men’s skin is different from women’s skin. It is usually bigger, and it has more snakes tattooed on it. Also, if you examine a woman’s skin very closely, inch by inch, starting at her shapely ankles, then gently tracing the slender curve of her calves, then moving up to her … [EDITOR’S NOTE: To make room for news articles about important world events such as agriculture, we’re going to delete the next few square feet of the woman’s skin. Thank you.]… until finally the two of you are lying there, spent, smoking your cigarettes, and suddenly it hits you: Human skin is actually made up of billions of tiny units of protoplasm, called “cells”! And what is even more interesting, the ones on the outside are all dying! This is a fact. Your skin is like an aggressive modern corporation, where the older veteran cells, who have finally worked their way to the top and obtained offices with nice views, are constantly being shoved out the window head first, without so much as a pension plan, by younger hotshot cells moving up from below. — Dave Barry, ‘Saving Face’ ”

    “Several years ago, some smart businessmen had an idea: Why not build a big store where a do-it-yourselfer could get everything he needed at reasonable prices? Then they decided, nah, the hell with that, let’s build a home center. And before long home centers were springing up like crabgrass all over the United States. — Dave Barry, ‘The Taming of the Screw’ ”

    “All the big corporations depreciate their possessions, and you can, too, provided you use them for business purposes. For example, if you subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, a business-related newspaper, you can deduct the cost of your house, because, in the words of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger in a landmark 1979 tax decision: “Where else are you going to read the paper? Outside? What if it rains?” — Dave Barry, ‘Sweating Out Taxes’ ”

    “Dear Mister Language Person: What is the purpose of the apostrophe?
    Answer: The apostrophe is used mainly in hand-lettered small business signs to alert the reader than an “S” is coming up at the end of a word, as in: WE DO NOT EXCEPT PERSONAL CHECK’S, or: NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ITEM’S. Another important grammar concept to bear in mind when creating hand- lettered small-business signs is that you should put quotation marks around random words for decoration, as in “TRY” OUR HOT DOG’S, or even TRY “OUR” HOT DOG’S. — Dave Barry, Tips for Writer’s “
