WAR OF THE SEXES

Kadınlar, Erkekler ve Evlilik Üstüne

 

 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN

* A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

* A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.

* Married men live longer than single men, but married men are a lot more willing to die.

* Any married man should forget his mistakes; there's no use in two people remembering the same thing. 

(Meaning, his wife will never forget or forgive them herself, anyway...)

* A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

* A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.

* A woman has the last word in any argument.

* Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

A HEADLINE: BEER FOUND TO CONTAIN FEMALE HORMONES

Yesterday scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones. To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, couldn't drive, and refused to apologize when wrong.

A MAN'S I.Q.

There's these three guys and they're out having a relaxing day fishing. Out of the blue, they catch a mermaid who begs to be set free in return for granting each of them a wish.

out of the blue = ansızın, durup dururken... mermaid = denizkızı...  to set free = serbest bırakmak... in return for = karşılığında... grant smb a wish = dile benden ne dilersen demek...

Now one of the guys just doesn't believe it, and says, "Ok, if you can really grant wishes, than double my I.Q."

double myI.Q. = iki katına çıkar...

The mermaid says, "Done." Suddenly, the guy starts reciting Shakespeare flawlessly and analysing it with extreme insight.

to recite (ri-sayt) = şiir okumak ("resital" sözcüğünün de kökü)... flawless = hatasız, kusursuz...

The second guy is so amazed he says to the mermaid, "Triple my I.Q." The mermaid says, "Done."

The guy starts to spout out all the mathematical solutions to problems that have been bugging all the scientists of varying fields: physics, chemistry, etc.

spout = fışkırtmak, püskürtmek, balina gibi üflemek (burada mecazi)... bugging (burada) kafasını kurcalayan...

The last guy is so enthralled with the changes in his friends, that he says to the mermaid, "Quintiple my I.Q."

enthralled = heyecan ve mutluluk duyuyor... quintiple = beş katına çıkart...

The mermaid looks at him and says, "You know, I normally don't try to change people's minds when they make a wish, but I really wish you'd reconsider."

"Biliyor musunuz, insanlar dilek dilerken normalde fikirlerini feğiştirmeğe çalışmam, ama sizin konuyu bir daha düşünmenizi gerçekten isterim..."

The guy says, "Nope, I want you to increase my I.Q. times five, and if you don't do it, I won't set you free."

"Please," says the mermaid. "You don't know what you're asking...it'll change your entire view on the universe... Won't you ask for something else... a million dollars, anything?"

But no matter what the mermaid said, the guy insisted on having his I.Q. increased by five times it's usual power.

no matter what the mermaid said = denizkızı ne derse desin...

So the mermaid sighed and said, "Done."

And he became a woman.

ANASAYFA      TESTLER      OKUMA      EĞLENCE

Additional explanation for the phrase "well-hung":

"Well hung" (or, "well-hung") is also an English idiom for referring to an inordinately long penis... It has been so for a surprisingly long time.

We find it, for instance, in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night  in a scene with Maria and the Clown:

Maria: ... My lady will hang thee for thy absence.

Clown: Let her hang me. He that is well hanged in this world needs to fear no colours.

To fear no colours = to fear no foe or enemies... So the Clown's retort means: "A man with a big dick need not be afraid of any men."

Shakespeare forces in another joke about "hanging" a few lines later:

Maria: Yet you will be hanged for being so long absent; or, to be turned away. Is not that as good as a hanging to you?

Clown: Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage...

Well, at least the clown seems to realize that even a big dick may not suffice to save a bad marriage...
