11 People On a Rope

man_and_woman_with_rope

11 people were hanging on a rope, under a helicopter. 10 men and 1 woman. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that one had to leave because otherwise they were all going to fall.

They weren't able to choose that person, until the woman gave a very touching speech. She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids or for men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping ......

  2. I have just come back after seeing Zero Dark Thiry and Jessica Chastain's performance as the one female among all those macho types is outstanding. Maya, portrayed by her would have most certainly done some thing like this!

  3. Not withstanding that I am laughing this is just awful, Old Foss. Talk about overkill. I shall not reflect on men in this context since your gender is dear to my heart, and who wants to consort with the gullible?

  4. Betcha the clapping stopped when the men landed back in reality, Consort.

    "We shouldn't have let her go, who will do the cooking, cleaning, laundry…"

    "Yeah, it shoulda been you Joe."

    Oh no, you're the one who ain't worth a crap, Dan." Let the fighting begin.

    Yes, men have been landing back in reality with a thud since the cave days, I am thinking. Still, we have our uses, like when you need a tough pickle jar opened or some such. Besides, we are really pretty.
