Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
[Tags|, , ]

I love the place where you're explaining that if a man cheats on his wife, the prophet will take his wife away and give her to someone else, to which one of the girls says, "Like a puppy."

That's about the most concise and accurate apperception of a patriarchal society's attitude toward women I've heard. Women are always told how special and perfect and perfectly cared for they are---just like a new puppy. Why wouldn't you want to be a new puppy? Well, if women are real people, and I stubbornly believe that they are, there are probably a lot of reasons they wouldn't want to be a puppy---new or otherwise.

In the next dispensation, men will be treated like puppies for a thousand years to see how they like it.  Of course we'll have to resurect the newspaper biz, 'cause the only good way to train a man will be with a rolled up newspaper.
