I know it is said that women are more "complex" than men, but I think I have found an amusing exception.
Scenario: You're making a sandwich. Just as you're placing the top slice of bread on your "Dagwood Special", a fly lands under it and is promptly suffocated in the mayo (or catsup, or mustard). Suffocated, not "smashed". Dead, but "intact".
Question: What do you do with the sandwich?
My theory of initial reactions, not the after-I-thought-about-it-awhile answers:
Most of the women have (already) said "Ewww, toss it out."
Most of the men have to know at least 2 of the following 3 things before they can answer:
- How big is this fly? Big housefly-fly or little knat-fly fly?
- What type of sandwich? Roast beef or bologna?
- Are there enough ingredients to replace any "tainted" parts of the sandwich?
Your "assignment" is to read the part in blue to your sig-other get their initial reaction to how they would handle the scenario. If your sig-other is a man, I'm betting he has to ask you a question or 2, before making a decision. If your sig-other is a woman, you may not even be allowed to finish the "question".
How many men said they would pick the little knat out of the roast beef sandwich, and keep eating?
