21st Century Man: I Has A Forward Thinking!

From Indian news site OneIndia: Men today have a forward thinking [sic]. They no longer want their wives to spend all their time cooking and cleaning. That was the 1930s! Now they want them to still do all that cooking and cleaning and also make lots of money.

"Since there is a vast opportunity for education and career for women on these days, men expect to share their financial burdens with their partner. Even though they expect these modern trends men also wishes their partner to be good looking, a good cook and a housekeeper.

Men on the present day give least importance to the chastity in their partner."

Well, at least the poor thing can sleep around in her copious spare time.

I was about to be appalled by the incredible bullshit women in India have to put up with, but then I got to the last line.

"Researchers at University of Iowa conducted this study."

  1. I'm afraid you may now have nowhere to go but down. The combination of a "Women Do..." story from India, written in hilarious English and based upon research from Iowa, is going to be hard to beat.

  2. Are you telling me my two-month-old blog has already jumped the shark? Fie on you! I quit the Internets!

    I can't get enough of these Indian dating advice columns. Here's another one, about women and the lies they tell. (Well, you can hardly blame her. She "has to blow his trumpet when he does the right thing.")

  3. Oh, why did you have to send me there? Now I have another "must see" to drag down my workday productivity even further.

    By the way, as much as I love the imagery of the trumpet quote, I think, as a lover of puzzles, I prefer the following. There's a really good basketball joke in there somewhere, but I can't quite get at it.

    "I just loved my wife whenever she averred this phrase. But gradually the knick-picking started and reality dawned upon me."
