Between 18 and 20 a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, naturally beautiful with fertile deltas.

Between 21 and 30 a woman is like America, well developed and open to trade especially for someone with cash

Between 31 and 35 she is like India, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40 a woman is like France – Gently aging but still a warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50 she is like Yugoslavia , lost the war – haunted by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction is now necessary.

Between 51 and 60, she is like Russia , very wide and borders are un-patrolled. The frigid climate keeps people away.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Mongolia, with a glorious and all conquering past but alas, no future.

After 70, they become Afghanistan.Almost everyone knows where it is, but no one wants to go there.


Between 15 and 70 a man is like Iran –

ruled by a dick.

    I’d change that from Iran to the U.S.A.; well, I guess both will work.

    Stereotypes! Ugly stereotypes! That’s all these are. Doug and you, too, Eileen, need to apologize to Afghanistan.

    And besides, Mr. Grandmere always goes to Afghanistan. He knows where his, um..bread is buttered.

    Jesus says forgive, so forgive I must.

    I am almost 44 and I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in. I can kick your ass (collective “you”) if necessary and I don’t look half bad in lacy underwear, even if I do say so myself.

    Didn’t anyone give Doug the memo that 50 is the new 40? (And that there are a whole lot of us Women of a Certain Age who have no intention of “going gently into that good night”?).

    Ladies…It’s a joke.

    I shall be joining the Yugoslavia crowd sooner than later, myself.

    Hands Doxy some vino…and a piece of chocolate cake.

    Eileen—I LIVE on red wine and chocolate. I just don’t eat anything else! 😉

    At my 25th high school reunion last summer, most of the women looked terrific. The men? Not so much.

    I’m not sure about all those over 40 comparisons. Not only do I like real women, but I like women my age, too.

    But yes, gracious hostess, I realize it was all meant in good fun 😉
