Something new about women i never knew.
Just seen it last night on a commercial.

They carry Full boxes of tampons with them while boating, just in case theres a leak in the boat.

I swear!
She just pulled out a brand new tampon, stuck it in the leak, and saved the day.

Damn near fell out of my recliner.

18. if i weren't on my period, all I'd have is lip gloss
which could be useful if the motor needs to be oiled or something.

But if i were on my period, and was going to do something where I might get wet, I'd be thoroughly prepared to stop any and all leaks that might occur.

10. You're a guy. You have to use duct tape.
Women use tampons.
Guys use duct tape.

NEVER confuse the two.

5. Yeah, who carries a full box of tampons around?
That's the only part of the commercial that's not believable. :D

14. and the male variation: the laptop case
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 01:21 PM by sui generis
I was digging in mine last week and was pretty sure I saw Jimmy Hoffa's body (or it could have been Osama, which would explain lots and lots), but I dropped it and some other stuff got in the way, and oh by the way my great dane didn't run away after all - she's been living in there with somebody's feral poodle and raised an entire family of big dogs with bad hair, living on leftover snack food, red bulls and tyvek CD sleeves for fiber.

9. Sorry, if the woman uses a Tampax to stop a boat leak
you're pretty much screwed since those things hold squat. OB are much more reliable and last much longer
