10 Reasons Men Prefer Guns Over Women

I’m probably going to go to hell for this, or at least end up sleeping on the couch for the foreseeable future, but this list, which I got from a friend, was too good not to post.

Here’s my question to you: Is it worth trying the “don’t shoot the messenger” defense with my spouse?

The Ten Reasons Men Prefer Guns Over Women:

10. You can trade an old .44 for a new .22.

9. You can keep one gun at home and have another for when you're on the road.

8. If you admire a friend's gun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times.

7. Your primary gun doesn't mind if you keep another gun for a backup.

6. Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo.

5. A gun doesn't take up a lot of closet space.

4. Guns function normally every day of the month.

3. A gun doesn't ask, 'Do these new grips make me look fat?'

2. A gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep when you’re done. 

1. You can buy a silencer for a gun.

Dear John,

My goodness! That's a bad start!
However, I feel you're done for old mate!

Being top rooster in the pen is fine but one shouldn't crow TOO loud. My experience suggests the strong possibility of much hen-pecking and if the farmer hears the noise there is that disastrous end where the head gets lopped, the fine feathers plucked, and before you know it, you're in the soup good and proper. OTOH both the friends(who needs enemies), and BB's list, raised a smile for this 'chicken'. Brave, but..

Agreed. I think I'm sunk here. I have little doubt as to how these comments will break along gender lines.


You wife should make you sleep on the couch for telling old jokes. Not for "Ten Reasons."
