Comments: A gift idea you're probably glad you missed


Specialized Marketing 101: The best way to get a woman to buy something is to make it sound insulting, like "Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives" (Maybe that's a really good book, but I never got past glancing at the cover.)

The female subculture - I think it's culture, not genetic - is like an alien world inside the main world that both men and women live in.

I don't know if you saw it, but this guy was on The Colbert Report. They took [presumably phony] calls from people asking about relationships. Stephen kept cutting off Greg to supply his own bad advice. Greg was getting really pissed off. It was pretty funny.

March 8: Maybe you should just shut the fuck up during the game.

June 6: Asking about your sister is also a sign.

December 31: Seriously, he isn't going to call. Go buy another calendar.

I'm with Eileen here. I think I'll call my first book "Even This Book Hates You" in order to clean up among women in their 30s.

Interestingly, the calendar is only a couple of Amazon degrees of separation away from a book on using neurolinguistic programming to get a man to fall in love with you. Thank goodness there's something women can do to make their lives worthwhile!
