A Man Frightened By A Menopausal Woman

Hide your brothers, sons, husbands, gardeners and Fed Ex delivery men. The Menopausal Woman is on the loose, leaving nothing but male entrails in her path … (BTW – I wrote and edited this. No one seems to realize this. I must grab my glory)

Please share this with every wife, mother and daughter you know so they can better protect their testosterone laden loved ones. Thank you.

    “I would not melt your penis”
    That’s just a boldfaced lie. I totally would.

    This video is one of THE MOST hysterical things I have ever seen in my whole life to include post menopausal decade of madness. Will share the shit out of it. Oops- I said a bad word.

    OMGosh – I don’t know if I am laughing or crying – probably both. I love how your humor and wit are conveyed though their monotone… and the way p*ssy & osteoporosis (hell – & everything else) are pronounced is priceless.

    BTW – I know you hate that people don’t leave you enough comments. I have been reading your blog for the past two evenings, so I am guilty. (How did I even get here? Oh I know, from your Change.org petition.) However, I am withholding comments so as not to appear stalker~ish. But I promise – I love every. single. word.

      Arielle thanks soooo much for the feedback. I love to be stalked online. That’s what we bloggers live for!
