    What's this?... a joke?

    Hi,

    Please read this, it almost sounds like a joke.

    Source http://www.nbc4.tv/irresistible/1855982/detail.html

    STAYTON, Ore. -- It's a quick read -- as women might guess.

    Jordan and Lindy Schweiger have written a book titled, "Everything Men Knew About Taking Care of Themselves Before Women Came Along."

    It's 96 pages long -- and every page is blank. The Schweigers publish under the pen name Doctor Ever E. Mann.


    The couple surveyed people at shopping malls to come up with a title for their book. The Stayton, Ore., couple say they'll donate all their profits to a local crisis center for victims of domestic violence.
    See the book cover in this page

    At least they'll use the earnings for a good cause.

    Thanks.

    lol

    thats gotta be a joke...think about it whats the first thing you do before buying a book??

    you have a little flick through to see what its like...your not gonna buy a book with blank pages ...unless you thought it was funny and wanted to buy it for your husband etc for a joke...

    still i found it quite amusing...and before women came along men were having the time of there lives with no one moaning about the decorating garden etc

    If you read it carefully, the main purpose is to raise donation, so that solves the problem.
    It's funny, and for a good reason, tho

    I agree with invader. The point of the book is to rasie money for charity, and the book, most likely is a joke, but a joke for a good casue, your donating money to a chairty for a great casue, and your getting something to give to your husband, or brother, or another male in your life, it's a great idea!

    Personally, I'd buy it for my mom, my sister, my grandmother, all of my female friends...everyone who knows that every word in the book is true

    Especially if you read between the lines.
