Because men have no sense of humour


There was an ad campaign in this country a few years back that was very successful. It's task was to encourage men (younger men particularly) to slow down. Several shots of men racing off at lights or speeding to impress girls, were met with witnesses holding up their pinkie fingers in response. This symbol indicates the witness things the guy must have a really small dick in order to be acting that way.


After the ad was on for a while, a report aired on the radio of a distressing case of road rage. A man attacked a woman's car with a baseball bat on a freeway while she was sitting in it, smashing windscreen, back window and making large dents in her bonnet. When he had to face a judge in court over the incident, the man cited as a genuine defence, she'd held her small pinky finger up at him when he'd cut her off in heavy traffic.


Can I tell you? Men can't take a joke.


Guys, if you're gonna put the whole 'aggressive-im-better-than-you' thing out there these days, you gotta expect a little backlash.No one is falling for dragging at lights, two-wheel corners or mufflers that don't work. The chicks your going to pull are the ones you are embarrassed to be seen with - trust me.


Driving dangerously has got to be one of the most stupid, 'shit-for-brains' way of attracting mucho attention ever. this went out with the 50's greasers. please get it through your head that public roads are not the place for extreme sport.


Or, at least if you HAVE to do it, understand that you will be made merciless fun of, with no apology forthcoming no matter how much you sulk.


For your information, the man who cited the small finger joke as justification for his outrage, was fined, had to pay court costs, and had to pay to fix the woman's car.


In romance novels men use their 'mucho birthright' to fight off villains and evil vampires, werewolves, bad counts, dukes earls and cousins. They never, ever use their powers for bullshit because women writers know, that inspires incredulity and mountains of jokes.  And justifiably so.
