Illustating the Differences Between the Sexes: Part II

Part II of our ongoing series...

The other night we were enjoying a bit of tv, when the Diet Coke commercial featuring Heidi Klum invaded our line of vision. It could be worse...I know this...at least she is promoting The Heart Truth / Red Dress Collection - raising awareness about women's heart health.

Mr. News Readin', experiencing a bit of an epiphany, stated:

"Men are sitting ducks. No one is out there promoting awareness for men's health issues. Women go to the doctor for every little thing. Men don't go to the doctor until their friends stop fronting them their ED meds..." (Interesting point.)

The rant continued:
"When is someone going to organize a walk, run or even a freakin' three legged race for men's medical issues?"

Hmmm...I sense something bigger going on here.

Me: "Well, what about all the work Katie Couric does for colorectal cancer awareness?"

Mr. NR: "That's not what I mean..."

Me: "Oh - you want to know why some other supermodel isn't promoting men's heart disease prevention in a tight red dress."

Mr. NR: "Exactly."

Even during a moment of true concern for the well being of his fellow men, it all comes down to a hot girl.

Way to rally for the cause, dear.

Stat tuned.
More at 11.

Priceless. Utterly priceless.

(BTW, does the snooze reader know what a fabulous writer you are...? Honestly, you are!)

Brilliant. And I just figured out how to get the Anonymous Husband to (finally) go the dentist; since they are all so eager to believe, surely Heidi as dental hygienist isn't a stretch?

Poor Katie Couric, not hot enough to matter.
