Default Chauvenism Is Alive And Well....

Yeah, I have heard that version too.
My version can be said in mixed company, and you can get away with it - it drives the women crazy trying to come up with a suitable comeback, and they don't succeed.

Default Sinbinning And Getting Your Own Dinner....

Yeah, and your version is more likely to get you a serve of hot tongue and cold shoulder too.

I have also heard that a wife is an appliance that you screw on your bed.

A little chauvinism every now and then can be quite healthy, ain't it? Taking care about political correctness all the time can drive one mad!!!!

Default So, Who Cares About Political Correctness?.....

Yeah, we need an outlet now that the bra has been burned, and ball busting women are loose, and on the rampage.
Witty or tastefull jokes at their expense are fine by me.

I Posted a link to pictures of Ella McPherson and even a picture and did not get sinbinned.
Gromanswe had as occupation girl watching and websurfing.
But I agree DIYAUDIO is a mans world.

And have a look at halojoy's profile:

Biography Male
Location Sweden
Interests High Fidelity Audio, Chess, Nude Females
Occupation Professional Web Surfer


Which proves 2 things:
1) halojoy & gromanswe is same person, with similar interests
2) halo/gro usually says it like it is

All Quiet on the Girly Front
/paraphrase of Eric Maria Remarque booktitle "All Quiet on the Western Front"

A book written Between The Wars,
by Eric who had been a very young german soldier in First WorldWar.
Considered as a milestone, when it comes to give a truthful telling
about what war is like.
Recommended!

He was born in Germany, Osnabrüumlck, 1898.
His message about horror of warfare, was not appreaciated by Hitler,
who stood ready to begin a new war.
I have read at least 2 of his book.
The one above and "Der Weg Zurück", in which he tells how difficult
it is to adjust to a normal life, after being formed by war-experiences.
This is a well-known fact, even in modern wars. (Vietnam-Veterans)


Quote:
from a website:

Remarque began his studies at the University of Münster, but was drafted into the German army at the age of 18 and was wounded several times. After the war he worked as a teacher, racing-car driver and as a sportswriter while working on his novel.

The events of All Quiet on the Western Front are those in the daily routine of soldiers who seem to have no past or future apart from their life in the trenches. It's title, the language of routine communiqués, is typical of its cool, terse style, which records the daily horrors of war in laconic understatement. Its casual amorality was in shocking contrast to patriotic rhetoric. The book was an immediate international success, as was the American film made from it in 1930. It was followed by a sequel, Der Weg Zurück (1931; The Road Back), dealing with the collapse of Germany in 1918.

Remarque left Germany for Switzerland in 1932. His books were banned by the Nazis in 1933. In 1938 he lost his German citizenship. In 1939 he went to the United States where he was naturalized in 1947. After World War II he settled in Porto Ronco, Switzerland, on Lake Maggiore, where he lived with his second wife, the American film star Paulette Goddard, until his death. He wrote several other novels, most of them dealing with victims of the political upheavels of Europe During World Wars I and II. Some had popular success and were filmed (e.g., Arch de Triomphe, 1946), but none achieved the critical prestige of his first book.
