Men Smart, Women Smarter

January 9, 2009 at 10:04 am 10 comments

Throughout history, men have succumbed to women. Time and again, women have shown their genius for influencing men, outlasting them, forcing their will into them, or getting them out of the way if they don’t behave.

It all started in the Garden of Eden. Gorgeous Eva bit the apple against the will of her benefactor and then dared Adam to do the same. At first, Adam refused but did it anyway. He took a bite of the apple, and, to prove that he was smarter, finished it off to hide the evidence.

Who could have caused the Trojan War and the launching of a thousand ships but a woman named Helen? And who could have dared kill King Agamemnon who led the Trojan War but her wife named Clytemnestra?

Who could forget Sam whose strength made it to the Guinness book of records? His downfall was meeting charming Delilah during a pot party. While he was asleep in her bed, she cut his hair, the source of his pride. And according to rumors, she also disposed of his you-know-what. But, thanks to spin doctors, it didn’t make it to the 6 o’clock News.

King Philip of Macedon, master of Ancient Greece, took another wife named Cleopatra. Olympias, his first wife and mother of Alexander, didn’t take it lightly. While preparing an attack on Persia, he was assassinated. Olympias was accused of masterminding the murder, but the case was later dropped by the authorities for lack of evidence. Anyway, King Philip might have proven his courage in battle but it was no match to the wiles of a woman spurned.

At the wedding in Cana, the mother of Jesse whispered to her son that the host was running out of wine. Jesse told his mother that it wasn’t fair that he should fork out for drinks. After all, it wasn’t his party. But no sooner after he had spoken that he asked the boys to order more bottles at the nearby liquor store. Such was the power that a mother could hold on her son.

I want to believe in the superiority of men over women. Men are supposed to be in charge. For one thing, they have the bigger brains. The problem is that men don’t use their brains so much. The women with the smaller brains have learned to use them to their advantage.

Additional Musings on the Subject:

Hitler’s Fatherland didn’t last for a thousand years. It was no match against Stalin’s Mother Russia.

When girls cry they usually get what they want. When boys use the same ploy, they get spanked and sent to their room.

When a woman wears pants, she’s admired for being practical. When a man wears a dress, he’s ridiculed for being a sissy.

Some variety of female spiders devour the male after lovemaking. Who says you can’t have your cake… er, sex and eat it, too?

A man fires up more than 10 million sperms per discharge to fertilize one egg. Even with that number, he doesn’t always succeed.

Women tend to have more endurance than men. For example, a man gets exhausted too fast in bed. In 3 minutes, he’s done. By contrast, she has just barely begun.

    napansin ko lang na lahat ng babaeng binaggit mo ay puro pagtatraydor o pagpapapatay o panunukso ang ginawa sa mga kalalakihan. at actually, yan ang mga bagay (o katangian) na hindi madalas ma-associate sa mga babae dahil supposedly sila ay mahihinhin at mabait at submissive. kaya naman kapag ginagawa nila ang mga ganiyang bagay ay nagigimbal ang lahat.

      di naman lahat. binanggit ko rin si jesse at ang kanyang ina. anyway, tama lang na magimbal ang mga lalaki paminsan minsan para matauhan.

    Hahaha! Very funny and I like the references to literary heroes and heroines. Women do know how to use their femininity against the weakness of men, no doubt about it lol.
