This article has INTERESTING POWER!
2002-03-01 05:53:34 PM  
I'd have to say that link is the most boring thing I have ever laid my farkin eyes on
2002-03-01 05:54:26 PM  
Men are similarly judged by the size of their sacks.
2002-03-01 05:54:37 PM  
I have never gone into a woman's handbag.
My mom always told me she kept a bear trap in hers and if I went in it I would draw back a stump.

They say World War I was the defining proof that progress makes a better mankind; I think personalized purses has beaten this theory.

Where's the "Cold-Hearted Biatch" section?
2002-03-01 05:56:37 PM  
So what kind of purse does a "Half-lesbian-hates-all-men-don't-come-near-me-but-she-will-end-up-marrying-so me-loser-and-live-in-a-trailer-park" woman carry? ? ? ?
2002-03-01 05:56:40 PM  
That was totaly sleep inducing.
2002-03-01 05:57:16 PM  
BTW: If your SO hands you her purse to hold in public, the only acceptible, regular-guy way of holding it is to tuck it like a football.

That is all.
2002-03-01 05:57:29 PM  
What 'bout if'n I carry me a burlapy sack...?
2002-03-01 05:57:51 PM  
The #1 thing that a purse reveals about a woman...they are inferior to men! Feminists hide their heads in shame over this article.
2002-03-01 05:58:13 PM  
I goin' home to clean out the junk drawer and see what kinda man I am.
2002-03-01 05:58:45 PM  
I myself use the "binary" system: if she has a purse, she is probably clinically insane, moody, and manipulative.
2002-03-01 05:59:34 PM  
What about the money-grabbing woman, or the no-driving-ability-woman... wait, that's all of them, heh heh.

I kid, I kid.
2002-03-01 06:00:41 PM  
Nanookanano thank you for that tip, I always wondered what the proper method was. I use to just hold it by the bag not the strap, but I would try to keep it as far away from me as possible.
2002-03-01 06:01:33 PM  
The guy equivalant to a purse is his vehicle.
What kind and how much junk, and where is it?
2002-03-01 06:02:36 PM  
Oh no, I don't carry any of those types of bags! I must have no personality!

I very rarely carry a purse and when I do it's a simple black pack that rests against my stomach like a marsupial pouch. All it says about my personality is that I sometimes carry books and want my arms free.
2002-03-01 06:02:49 PM  
Yeah, P'saur. If any guy points, looks or snickers, make like you're straight-arming him, or that he should go deep for the pass.
2002-03-01 06:04:18 PM  
Oh, and never, never be ashamed to hold a purse or buy tampons. It means you've got a woman.
2002-03-01 06:04:22 PM  
The article forgot to point out that women who carry backpacks that look like fuzzy animals or have Winnie the Pooh heads on them---are probably retarded.
2002-03-01 06:06:28 PM  
Never carry an object for purely sentimental reasons (rock crystals are heavy!)

Who the fark carries rock crystals?
2002-03-01 06:06:50 PM  
OK, Ladies, please settle a dispute-
Is it a
or is it a
Also, are they
or are they

Please discuss....
2002-03-01 06:08:28 PM  
Neither purse nor handbag works in my case - it's a pack or pouch. And panties, because panties is fun to say.

All a woman has to have in her purse is a six-pack of Schlitz and a whole mess a' condoms.

Amen to that, Hollywood's Joe Don Baker.

"deep with the potential to be messy"

Adrock: Purse - Underwear at least in this Farkettes opinion not that that means shiat
2002-03-01 06:13:14 PM  


Was that article an advertisment for something?
2002-03-01 06:13:45 PM  
Metalstill Ouch!! You do have a crappy web site.
2002-03-01 06:13:57 PM  
Well, this article is a new low in thinly disguised undercover marketing masquarading as informative lifestyle journalism.

Maybe one of you females can explain what it is you carry that you can't do without. Somehow men manage to everything in their pockets usually, why can't women do that to?
2002-03-01 06:16:03 PM  
Guh. This topic is like murder.

Grizzly: My handgun won't fit in my pocket
2002-03-01 06:17:24 PM  
Nor will mine, but I still don't carry a purse :)
2002-03-01 06:17:28 PM  
Funkychunk: MITCHELL! great reference
2002-03-01 06:19:42 PM  
My type isn't on there. It takes me about 3 months of purse perusing to find one that "fits" and then what I have in there is my wallet, a mirror, lipstick, eyeliner, dayplanner, pen, Advil, Altoids, cell phone, cigarettes, and keys. Black or brown purse so I don't have to do the seasonal changing thing. Finding the right purse is a problem though.
2002-03-01 06:19:56 PM  
but see Grizzly - I NEED my gun on me all the time. Ya gots to watch ya back in the city.

Bling bling.

2002-03-01 06:25:13 PM  
I agree with Foodbunny:

PANTIES! I like to say PANTIES!!

Plus, I would never whisper in a girls ear
"I want to peel your *underwear* off with my teeth."
I mean, for christ's sake, I wear underwear. Well, I don't, but guys do.

Hold your tongue and say "PURSE"! It's funny.
2002-03-01 06:25:28 PM  
My old roomate had about 30 diffrent purses, She said they were for coordinating outfits. Funny thing was she lost her liscence about 12 times over the course of a year. She was always a blast to take to a bar and then find out she didn't have her ID.
2002-03-01 06:26:20 PM  
Adrock It's a purse unless you're 80 or so and then it's a handbag.. no one I know ever calls it that.

And it's underwear unless you're talking about it with a guy and then it's panties, but only because guys keep calling them panties. Personally, if I refer to them at all I just call them chonies. (spanish bastardization)

IMO of course.
2002-03-01 06:30:15 PM  
Tag should be "OBVIOUS".
2002-03-01 06:34:45 PM  
Karmic Hoax:
Chonies= cool.
I also love it when a girl calls 'em "Draws" ....
I don't know why it's hot....
2002-03-01 06:38:30 PM  
Gidge: yep, that's why I moved from SoCal to Utah :)

Ironically, any dumbass can get a concealed weapons permit here, and far too many have them. Fortunately, they don't have much occasion to use them, real or imagined. Normally dressed rednecks with a dirty, stupid looking, lumpy fanny pack positioned directly above their gonads is the tip off. Freud would have a field day.
2002-03-01 06:46:51 PM  
I love the tips down at the bottom of the article. Make sure to stay prepared-- nothing's more important than making sure nobody sees your real face!

It's all about the natural beauties. Jeans and a t-shirt are the best lingerie.
2002-03-01 06:52:31 PM  
I call it that thing that she always leaves somewhere and we spend the rest of the evening backtracking to find it.
2002-03-01 06:52:48 PM  
Bloomers is also fun to say......

Geesh, I've had the same wallet for over 14 years. It's starting to fray a bit, so I may retire it in a few years.
2002-03-01 06:57:00 PM  
Heh.. What's up Gidget?

Coors and guns now hey what?
2002-03-01 07:12:21 PM  
*doesn't carry a purse*
2002-03-01 07:24:23 PM  
Ummmmm....I do carry a messenger bag that is starting to reach "purse" status. My freinds call it a "man-bag" ...
"I aint no fag!"
2002-03-01 07:48:09 PM  
most of the guys i know carry some sorta "man-bag" Adrock, you're not alone ^^'
2002-03-01 07:54:21 PM  
This Coors is so damn good I'm 'bout to bust a cap off in here!

Wow, Grizzly - I didn't know you could carry a concealed weapon in Utah. I love how the fanny pack has taken the place of a holster. Ha HA!! Can you a imagine a show-down at high noon... *zip* *zip* BLAM!!
