The Trouble with Women

This really explains it all.

Although, one has to wonder... what IS Brad's problem? Could it be that he's a jerk?

Seriously, it's almost noon. Am I still in my pyjamas? Yes. Have I cleaned my room? No. Am I screwing around and watching these 1950's educational films? Absolutely.

I promise this is the last one. For today.

Oh noes! They sent a dame to inspect his bearings, his ball bearings perhaps.

Nothing wrong with not cleaning your room. If it makes you feel better I will join you on the no cleaning side.

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 11:53 AM  

But Iasa, I *never* clean my room. All of my clothes are wrinkled and/or in a giant pile (that's why I need to watch How to Be Well Groomed--they iron).

You're enabling me. ;-)

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 11:54 AM  

ps. I did also think that Brad was oversensitive about having a woman inspecting his bearings, too.

Poor Brad. He must be a fun date.

Mari December 20, 2008 at 12:14 PM  

I'll tell you exactly what Brad's trouble is: me, when I wrap my bra around his neck and set it on fire!

That was very funny and horrifying at the same time. Thanks, I'll have to show my daughters.

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 12:16 PM  

LMAO! Mari! Yes! I'll bring the lighter.

When you show your daughters, be sure to also show them How to Be Well Groomed. That one might be my favorite.

I can't believe that the sun is shining and I'm inside watching this stuff.

Brook December 20, 2008 at 12:34 PM  

Well, the sun's not shining here and I'm on a date with myself in my messy room avoiding my own personal misogynist. Well, acrually his father is the real misogynist so this is good prep for the 5 days I'll be spending with "Brad" in manland! I'd better go get started on my personal grooming!

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 12:37 PM  

Brook! You almost made me choke on my gum. If you were here, I'd pay you to clean my room and then we could get some pie. Thereby totally avoiding "Brad" and his ilk. A Win-Win for both of us.

*sigh* Good luck with all of those burdens for today. And with the personal grooming. I for one feel very undergroomed now.

You totally just cracked me up.

robinbird December 20, 2008 at 12:39 PM  

wow brad you have issues! he may benefit from a female therapist. stay in your pjayz ..go ahead it won't hurt you will it? :)

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 12:40 PM  

robin bird, I don't even think you in all your brilliance could help Brad. Or could you? ;-)

I should really get dressed. The sun is shining and we have no food.

Hmmm...yes, Brad does have a few minor issues, doesn't he? Where in the world did you find these old videos? Gosh, they take me straight back to the 50's and 60's!

~K December 20, 2008 at 1:01 PM  

I'm pretty sure Brad is not gettin' any at home. That is a lot of pent up frustration right there. not to mention he clearly has an oedipus complex!

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 1:14 PM  

@willow: I hope they didn't bring you too far back. How did people survive the 50s? Geez.

I started watching the videos with the Prelinger Archives and then found a bunch of them on youtube.

@~K: It might be fair to say that Brad doesn't have anyone to get it from at home in the first place and that's part of his problem.

i think brad's trouble is the trouble every single male has. they dont want to accept a woman can be as good or better than them.

lazy day in are the best!

i can be in my p.js all day if the world allowed it.

Gabby December 20, 2008 at 2:13 PM  

Seems obvious to me that Brad just won't come out of the closet.

tangobaby December 20, 2008 at 2:23 PM  

@chaos: aww, come on...they're not all that bad. And you have to admit that Myrtle was kind of a pain in the ass, right?


I've moved on from the YouTube stuff and now am catching up on my Daily Shows. So much for today. PJs rule.

@Gabby: Your perception gives new meaning to the line at the end: "You need someone and there isn't a man available." heh heh

You'd think I had this film memorized by now.

Char December 20, 2008 at 3:38 PM  

a lazy day is always good....poor Brad - he had so many issues

Anonymous December 20, 2008 at 10:53 PM  

haha, you're a riot. i never clean my room either or any of the other rooms in the house. its too big of a mess and too small of a space.

April December 20, 2008 at 11:47 PM  

Haha, I think Brad may like men.... a little too much.

namastenancy December 21, 2008 at 9:18 AM  

Oh Dear - Brad reminds me of a few of my early supervisors. I think they must have been channeling this video. In fact, I think I remember watching movies like this back in high school in the 60's. Unfortunately, Brad is not an endangered species. He's out there today and not lurking either. Ptooi. I spit!
