On a related note, these women are watching too much tv and not cooking or sewing enough.

On a related note, sitcoms are based on real life so the masses can identify with them.

Who let them out of the kitchen to take a damn survey?!

/hopes my future husband doesn't look like Homer Simpson.

I'd take a likening to Homer Simpson as a compliment.
 
2008-06-06 10:27:02 AM  
most sitcoms make men look like morons when, in fact, i notice most men to be better cooks and able to fix things around the house.
 
2008-06-06 10:27:05 AM  
Well if the striking similarity is boffing a 22 year old bimbo for awhile, call me Ducky.

Where are the statistics about the beauty of women? Men can't all be married to the latest fashion models...

Now sitcom dads are largely a bumbling collection of dorks,

And the TV execs are still wondering how to get that male demographic back to prime time.

Harper's character comes across as seriously gay, though the actor is straight.
 
2008-06-06 10:28:49 AM  
People watch that show enough to make anecdotal comparisons to real life?

What about Fred Flintstone?

This just in, couples tend to let their looks go after a number of years of marriage.

FTFA

"Nearly 60 percent of surveyed moms said their husbands deserve more childrearing credit. Interestingly, Parenting.com mentioned another of its surveys that reported 60 percent of moms felt dads did more than past generations, but as kids get older "moms are more likely to think that dads still have a long way to go before they participate enough."

I worked a retail job that attracted many stay-at-home mom's. They are quite possibly the worst part of our population. With a few exceptions, they are wasting most of that free time buying stupid crap and plopping thier kids in from of some electronic device hoping they learn from that. I spent many years helping these women who have let thier brain stale and ultimately rot. Its like looking at a native who's never seen a westerner before. Very blank and empty.

Also, I prefer it when people liken me to Sheldon Cooper.

All I have to contribute is this....

Why are womens feet smaller than mens?

It's genetic. It's so they can stand closer to the sink and stove.

I'm going to have nightmares from that photo. Thanks.

Glad mine doesn't look like Homer. I guess he wouldn't be my husband in the first place if he did though.

Haha if you look like Homer then I look like Condoleeza Rice.

It's all good, I apparently have a new personality copy on TV in Swingtown according to my wife.

Oh? Call me when she's on MILF Island.

/would watch the hell out of that show

So their choices were Homer Simpson, Alan Harper or Ray Barone

What would be our choices for our wives?

Red on "That Seventies Show" wasn't all bad and should get a few votes just for the proper use of the word "dumbass."

Best TV dad ever.

No mention of "Max Power"

/got it from a hair dryer

I haven't seen many fat husband + hot wife combos, its usually fat husband + fat wife, although I am from the mid west so I could be wrong.

I guess mine is like Ray Barrone, especially the episode where he got Superbowl tickets and took his wife along on the trip, and she's thinking it's just the two of them; then when they get there, she finds out he just volunteered her to hang out with the other's guys' wives, when she didn't know a bunch of other couples were going in the first place and she didn't know any of them. Thinking that just because we're all girls, we'll magically have a great time together shopping and talking about hair and makeup and nail polish.

Mrs. Henry saw similarities between me & the dude in `The Big Lebowski'. I was flattered - then insulted - then confused - then apathetic.

As a younger man this works out well for me. I was out at a local bar in south Tempe, Dos Gringos, and the place was filled with middle aged women. I had just left work and was sitting at a table waiting for my tacos drinking a bukket of Corona's. Suddenly the waitress approaches and says her is a shot of patron from the lady at the bar. I thought wtf? I smell the shot and tell the waitress to get the older lady at the bar a similar shot. I go over to the bar and we take the shots together. I invite her to my table and we began to chit chat. I drop my standard game. We go back to my place and get to know each other on a horizontal level. Then she tells me shes married and I let her know that we just met and she's already telling me her problems. The cougar problem is amazing here in the Phoenix area. And yes most husbands are like Alan Harper, Ray, and Homer.

And then the same women who want their husbands to be sensitive and emasculated complain that he is too much like whiny nerdy possibly gay sitcom characters.

Ditto. My husband is still the greatest and most handsome man I have ever known. And he always will be.


/still keeping myself in great shape for him, too. Not everyone lets themselves go. If anything, marrying my best friend gave me the confidence to improve myself even more.

Isn't it... uhm... impolite to let a guy know you're married after you bang him? (Even if it turns out in retrospect the guy doesn't mind)
