Women's Magazine By Men Contest Results

Dave in Texas took time off from pool blogging, and writing about an Army surgeon awarded the highest non-combat award for undertaking the daring surgery of removing a live RPG round from a soldier's belly, to judge the improptu contest. Winners below the jump.

He was also assisted by Kevlarchick, who judged the unfunny ones (the ones submitted by womenfolk).


I could have watched the Superbowl. Instead I worked diligently to evaluate the humor and pathos of these entries in the " A Truly Helpful Periodical: The Ace of Spades Women's Magazine, Written By Men " post.

My criteria? Arbitrary and capricious. I burned my mouth on a pizza roll, so I wasn't exactly mirthy.

I broke things down thusly:

Three Steps Guaranteed to Get Your Man to Do What You Want:

1. Say his name.

2. Tell him exactly what you want.

3. No... just fuggin' tell him exactly what you want. Don't throw a hint so that you'll know he loves if he does exactly what you want and then get pissed if he doesn't do it. Just friggin' tell him exactly what you want. no NO NO! Don't tell him what you DON'T want and think he'll get up and do the opposite. Wait! Stop! Don't tell him about how women generally like when men do this, or about how doing what you want was featured on Oprah, or about how your ex used to do it. Just tell him exactly what you FUCKING WANT!

by geoff

Men want to fix things.

Don't tell me about a problem unless you want me to fix it. If I think it's fixable, I'm going to give it a try, and possibly not discuss the solution with you first... if this isn't your goal, clarify that beforehand.

And the girl things.

Honestly. None of them seemed funny to me.

Ok, I'm lying. A lot of them were funny to me. But I don't have two X chromosomes, so I enlisted the help of the lovely and talented kevlarchick to help me pull the best o the best from the return fire category.
So blame her.

1. "Just Because Women Aren't 'Visual Creatures' Doesn't Mean It's Okay For You To Turn Into Jabba The Hut: Part four of an ongoing series" lauraw.

2. "The Art Of Morning Nookie: A 'Gun' Jammed In Her Back Ain't Sexy" lauraw. (really?)

3. "Get your hand off your crotch. It's not going to run away." pajamma momma

4. "Your jokes: I'm only laughing because awkward silences make me embarrassed for you." mary.

5. "Learning to Live --- Basic Differences Between Mother and Wife." beth

6. "Pick your myth: The Lochness Monster, Big Foot or the G-spot!" dragonlady474

7. "Quid Pro Quo?: Why Taking Her Out to Dinner Doesn't Necessarily Have to Lead Where You Want it to Lead" Nice Deb

8. "The Clit for Dummies, First edition : It's not a chew toy, nor is it a fence" Tres.

I picked this one two, because I am curious about this clit myth.

9. "This'll just take a couple hours: Mens' delusions (or why it took a month and 20 trips to the hardware store to complete that home improvement project.)" Betty.

10. "The living room is fucking purple: Lessons in listening when your wife talks to you." Betty.

Bart mentioned this too. Bart is Betty. That's my theory.

See? I don't get any of those. But they win nonetheless.

Bonus question: if chicks play in these things are they bigger morons than the dudes?

Man lesbians like Rosetta just confuse the stats.
