“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A recent scientific study found that women find different male faces attractive depending on where they are in their menstrual cycle.

For example, when a woman is ovulating she will prefer a man with rugged, masculine features.

And just before she is menstruating, she prefers a man doused in petrol and set on fire, with scissors stuck in his eyes and a cricket stump shoved up his arse.

PMS in the Bible

This older couple was sitting around their apartment; she was clipping coupons while he was reading the bible.

The old man said to his wife, "You know honey, everything you ever wanted to know about life is in here."

She returned, "Well, maybe not EVERYTHING, dear."

He replied back, "Sure, just name one thing I can't find in here."

She said, "PMS-you won't find anything about it in there."

He began flipping through the pages, going from one chapter to another, pausing for a few seconds only before going on to the next page. After about 10 minutes, he looked up at his wife and said, "Aha! Here it is, I told you everything was in here."

Then he proceeded to begin reading the script "... and Mary rode Joseph's ass..."

1. The Female always makes THE RULES.
2. THE RULES are subject to change without notice.
3. No Male can possibly know all THE RULES.
4. If the Female suspects the Male knows all THE RULES, she must immediately change some of THE RULES.
5. The Female is never wrong.
6. If it appears the Female is wrong, it is because of a flagrant misunderstanding caused by something the Male did or said wrong.
7. If Rule #6 applies, the Male must apologize immediately for causing the misunderstanding.
8. The Female can change her mind at any time.
9. The Male must never change his mind without the express written consent of The Female.
10. The Female has every right to be angry or upset at any time.
11. The Male must remain calm at all times, unless the Female wants him to be angry or upset.
12. The Female must, under no circumstances, let the Male know whether she wants him to be angry or upset.
13. The Male is expected to read the mind of the Female at all times.
14. At all times, what is important is what the Female meant, not what she said.
15. If the Male doesn't abide by THE RULES, it is because he can't take the heat, lacks backbone, and is a wimp.
16. If the Female has PMS, all THE RULES are null and void and the Male must cater to her every whim.
17. If the Male, at any time, believes he is right, he must refer to Rule #5.

“Only by joy and sorrow does a person know anything about themselves and their destiny. They learn what to do and what to avoid.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

BTW: I left comments in the comment section for all of those who responded to my troubled post. They are in the comment section of that post.

Get back to me when you're 55.5 and still among the fertile. I'm too old to relate to PMS humor and yet, so it goes...Seriously, get back to me sooner! I was glad you dropped in because now I've found your lovely blog. And you have some solid background color going over here. I'm getting tired of white so I'm taking notes.

Women who have been scorned also like guys doused in fire with scissors sticking out of their eyes. Just so you know!

I quoted Goethe today, too.

I have 5 sons and a wonderful husband, so I have sympathy for the menfolk. And, I have 6 daughters, so I must concur with your list. ;~)

Thank you for the laughs, PMS was always a tough thing to go through for me, xanax was my best friend because I couldn't even stand myself. LOL All I can say is hysterectomies and estrogen in a pill form are awesome. ;-)

That "doused in lighter fluid..." part really got me chuckling.

Other PMS passages are found in the Bible when it refers to "weeping and gnashing of teeth" and "an eye for an eye." :)
