Answers to 5 of the toughest questions women ask... 

There are five things that women should never, ever ask a guy, 
according to an article in an issue of Sassy magazine.

The five questions are:

  1 -  "What are you thinking?"
  2 -  "Do you love me?"
  3 -  "Do I look fat?"
  4 -  "Do you think she is prettier than me?" 
  5 -  "What would you do if I died?"

What makes these questions so bad is that every one is guaranteed to 
explode into a major argument and/or divorce if the man does not
answer properly, which is to say dishonestly.  For example: 

1 -  "What are you thinking?"  The proper answer to this question, of 
course is, "I'm sorry if I've been pensive, dear.  I was just
reflecting  on what a warm, wonderful, caring, thoughtful, intelligent, 
beautiful woman you are and what a lucky guy I am to have met you."
Obviously, this statement bears no resemblance whatsoever to what the 
guy was really thinking at the time, which was most likely one of five 
         a -  Football
         b -  Baseball
         c -  How fat you are.
         d -  How much prettier she is than you.
         e -  How he would spend the insurance money if you died. 

According to the Sassy article, the best answer to this stupid question 
came from Al Bundy, of Married With Children, who was
asked it by his wife, Peg.  "If I wanted you to know," Al said, "I'd be 
talking instead of thinking."

The other questions also have only one right answer but many wrong answers: 

2 -  "Do you love me?"  The correct answer to this question is, "Yes." 
For those guys who feel the need to be more elaborate, you may answer, 
"Yes, dear." Wrong answers include:

         a -  I suppose so.
         b -  Would it make you feel better if I said yes. 
         c -  That depends on what you mean by "love".
         d -  Does it matter?
         e -  Who, me?

3 -  "Do I look fat?"  The correct male response to this question is to 
confidently and emphatically state, "No, of course not" and then
quickly leave the room.  Wrong answers include: 

         a -  I wouldn't call you fat, but I wouldn't call you thin 
         b -  Compared to what?
         c -  A little extra weight looks good on you. 
         d -  I've seen fatter.
         e -  Could you repeat the question?  I was thinking about 
               your insurance policy.

4 -  "Do you think she's prettier than me?"  The "she" in the question 
could be an ex-girlfriend, a passer-by you were staring at so hard that 
you almost cause a traffic accident or an actress in a movie you just
saw.  In any case, the correct response is, "No, you are much 
prettier."  Wrong answers include:

         a -  Not prettier, just pretty in a different way.
         b -  I don't know how one goes about rating such things. 
         c -  Yes, but I bet you have a better personality.
         d -  Only in the sense that she's younger and thinner.
         e -  Could you repeat the question?  I was thinking about 
               your insurance policy.

5 -  "What would you do if I died?"  Correct answer:  "Dearest love, in 
the event of your untimely demise, life would cease to have meaning for 
me and I would perforce hurl myself under the front tires of the first 
Domino's Pizza truck that came my way."  This might be the stupidest
question of the lot, as is illustrated by the following stupid joke: 

    "Dear," said the wife.  "What would you do if I died?"
    "Why, dear, I would be extremely upset," said the husband. 
    "Why do you ask such a question?"
    "Would you remarry?"  persevered the wife. "No, 
    of course not, dear" said the husband. "Don't
    you like being married?" said the wife. "Of 
    course I do, dear" he said.
    "Then why wouldn't you remarry?"
    "All right," said the husband, "I'd remarry."
    "You would?" said the wife, looking vaguely hurt. 
    "Yes" said the husband.
    "Would you sleep with her in our bed?" said the wife after a 
        long pause.
    "Well yes, I suppose I would."  replied the husband.
    "I see," said the wife indignantly. "And would you let her 
        wear my old clothes?"
    "I suppose, if she wanted to" said the husband.
    "Really," said the wife icily.  "And would you take down the 
        pictures of me and replace them with pictures of her?"
    "Yes.  I think that would be the correct thing to do."
    "Is that so?"  said the wife, leaping to her feet.  "And I suppose 
        you'd let her play with my golf clubs, too."
    "Of course not, dear," said the husband.  "She's left-handed."
