Based on the response we got from this one. We decided it deserved a place on cartalk.com. Tell us what you think, suggest new questions, and don't be afraid to turn the tables. We won't mind.
Tom: These are the five toughest questions women ask men and their answers.
The five questions are:
- What are you thinking?
- Do you love me?
- Do I look fat?
- Is she prettier than me?
- What would you do if I died?
1) What are you thinking?
The proper answer is this: "I'm sorry if I've been pensive dear, I was just reflecting on what a warm, thoughtful, intelligent, beautiful woman you are and what a lucky guy I am to have met you." Obviously this statement bears no resemblance whatsoever to what the guy is really thinking at the time which was most likely one of several things: Baseball, football, how fat his wife is, how much prettier she is than his wife and how much of the insurance money would he get to spend if she dies (ha, ha, ha).
Let me see if there's another one here that's good...da da da da. This came from the Internet. There's no reference to Dave Barry but it certainly does sound like Dave Barry.
Ray: It does sound like Dave Barry.
Tom: I like this one too. "Do I look fat?" (ha, ha, ha) The correct male response to this question is to confidently and emphatically say "No, of course not" and then quickly leave the room. Wrong answers include: "A little extra weight looks good on you." Wrong answer B: "Compared to what!" (ha, ha, ha) Wrong answer C: "I've seen fatter!" (ha, ha, ha)
You could be in a lot of trouble with this.
Ray: With any of those!
