All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Women vs. Men

Ladies, Read Only The First Part -- Men, The Rest

A woman was out golfing one day when she hit the ball into the woods. She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap. The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes."

The woman freed the frog, and the frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes. Whatever you wish for, your husband will get times ten!"

The woman said, "That's okay." For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis to whom women will flock."

The woman replied, "That's okay, because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will have eyes only for me."

So, KAZAM -- she's the most beautiful woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world. The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world. And he will be ten times richer than you."

The woman said, "That's okay, because what's mine is his and what's his is mine."

So, KAZAM -- she's the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered, "I'd like a mild heart attack."

Moral of the story: Women are clever. Don't mess with them.

Attention female readers: This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue feeling good.

Male readers, continue reading ...

The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife.

Moral of the story: Women think they're so smart. Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show.

PS: If you are a woman and are still reading this, it only goes to show that women never listen!

    Res, Res, Res, have you not learned yet after years of marriage to not poke the curiosity button of a woman?

    Women are intensely curious creatures. I suspect wired that way for the purposes of good mothering when the kids are tots and getting into everything they can. That curiosity is much stronger than the urge to listen. How do you think your mom always knew what you were up to when you were a kid?

    So yeah, you husbands kind of get the short end of the stick for a while anyway. And besides, men never listen either.{{grin & ducks}}

  2. How do you think your mom always knew what you were up to when you were a kid?

    She didn't. I was pretty good at not getting caught. Then she stuck me with my little brother and sister who liked to rat me out. When that didn't work they just made stuff up and I caught it for that.

    besides, men never listen either.{{grin & ducks}}.

    Huh? What? Did someone say something?

    My kids would swear to you that they got away with a lot of stuff too. Just because mom and dad did not choose to make a stink about something, doesn't mean we don't know about it.

    You will probably wind up in that particular boat too in the not too distant future.

  4. I told my brother that joke over the phone, it don't work over the phone :)

  5. Susan, My children haven't learned deceit yet. I will be a sadder man when they do.

    Wait...weren't those incidents about April Fool's just a little deceitful? Wasn't that what the Applebee's lesson was supposed to adress?
