That one is even funnier. I was laughing so hard on them, my stoamach hurt, and then I would get to the next funny one, and really scream with laughter. Thanks for the good laughs.

This topic is so interesting. If you ask me what types of guys I am looking for, I would say I only concern about their personalities, I want them to be confident, caring,funny and have a definite goal. It seems that many handsome guys are handsome only and they do not have the criteria I am looking for.

Another funny one! I find myself in the 32 age range but quickly slipping into the 42 age range of "what I want in a man". I need to copy these and send them to all of my female friends, I know they'll get a good laugh out of them. Thanks for sharing!!

Performance The Americans and the Japanese decided to engage in a competitive boat race. Both teams practiced hard and long to reach their peak performance. On the big day they felt ready. The Japanese won by a mile. Afterward, the American team was discouraged by the loss. Morale sagged. Corporate management decided that the reason for the crushing defeat had to be found, so a consulting firm was hired to investigate the problem and recommended corrective action. The consultant's finding: The Japanese team had eight people rowing and one person steering; the American team had one person rowing and eight people steering. After a year of study and millions spent analyzing the problem, the consultant firm concluded that too many people were steering and not enough were rowing on the American team. So as race day neared again the following year, the American team's management structure was completely reorganized. The new structure: four steering managers, three area steering managers and a new performance review system for the person rowing the boat to provide work incentive. The next year, the Japanese won by two miles. Humiliated, the American corporation laid off the rower for poor performance and gave the managers a bonus for discovering the problem."
