In a Harvard study of several hundred preschoolers, researchers discovered an
interesting phenomenon. As they taped the children's playground conversation, they
realized that all the sounds coming from little girls' mouths were recognizable words.
However, only 60 percent of the sounds coming from little boys were recognizable. The
other 40 percent were yells and sound effects like "Vrrrooooom!"
"Aaaaagh!" "Toot toot!" This difference persists into adulthood.
Communication experts say that the average woman speaks over 25,000 words a day while the
average man speaks only a little over 10,000. What does this mean in marital terms? . . .
On average a wife will say she needs to spend 45 minutes to an hour each day in meaningful
conversation with her husband. What does her husband sitting next to her say is enough
time for meaningful conversation? Fifteen to twenty minutes--once or twice a week!

the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect couple and Santa Claus had an
accident. Only one of them survived the accident. Who was the survivor?
Answer: The perfect woman. She's the only one that really existed in the first
place. Everyone knows there is no Santa Claus and there is no such thing as a
A Male's Response: So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the perfect woman
must have been driving. This explains why there was a car accident.
