a joke email i received today: "A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. The next week, the man realized that he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight to Chicago. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (AND LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." The next morning the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and that he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't woken him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up." MEN JUST AREN'T EQUIPPED FOR THESE SORT OF CONTESTS.

ok... is this supposed to really be a joke or some satirical social commentary? because... it makes no sense and i do not believe it is funny. in fact... don't women sleep more (in general) than men anyways? all the ones i know definitely outsleep their male counterparts. i know this is not the point of the post, but is this 'joke' saying that men don't think before they act? and that women have the edge in that department? it is stupid. what do you all think? i think i am gonna start collecting these dumb emails and make a seperate section for it.
