Here’s another sign that we’re making some real progress in gender equality: Women’s VOCABULARY is now filthier than men’s.
A new study found women are slightly more likely to use the F-word than men. Back in 1990, men used it about eight times more often than women . . . so this is a huge shift.
The study also found women are 10 TIMES more likely to use the S-word than men. This is definitely the biggest sign of women’s progress that will happen today.
By the time you’re like six years old, you figure out that fast food in real life looks NOTHING like it does in the commercials. In ads it looks beautiful and delicious . . . in real life it looks like glistening squashed roadkill.
A 64-year-old woman named Anna Wurtzburger from Hopewell Junction, New York has apparently managed to live for seven decades without figuring that out.
She recently got a $20 bucket of chicken from KFC, but when she got home, she found it wasn’t BURSTING with gorgeous pieces of fried chicken like in the photos.
Quote, “They say it feeds the whole family, they’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken. You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces.”
She called KFC’s corporate offices to complain, but when they kind of blew her off, she decided to SUE. She just filed a $20 million lawsuit against KFC for false advertising.
Something tells me this is NOT like the time Subway got in trouble for making footlongs that weren’t a foot long. KFC called the lawsuit, quote, “meritless.”

(Here’s a picture of one of those ads with the overflowing bucket.)
This might be the least romantic way to meet someone. But hey, whatever works . . .
There’s a 51-year-old truck driver in England named Mark Ellis. And about ten years ago, he was on his way to a bar when he stopped to use a public bathroom. It was some time around 2005, but it’s not really clear.
(CAREFUL!) Anyway, someone had written a phone number on the wall, with a message that said, “If you want a good SHAG, call Donna.” And he actually TRIED the number.
He sent a text that said, “What are you up to?” He didn’t think anyone would actually respond . . . he just did it as a joke. But someone texted BACK and said, “Who is this?” And it really WAS a woman named Donna.
Her name is Donna Roberts, and she looks like she’s in her thirties now. It turns out an ex-boyfriend had written her number on the wall to mess with her.
But it backfired, because she and Mark hit it OFF. They started dating, fell in love, and they now have two kids together . . . a nine-year-old and an eight-year-old.
A newspaper in England just did a story on them, so that’s why we’re hearing about it. Donna says their kids are still too young for the REAL story of how they met. So for now they think Mark just texted her by mistake.
A new study out of Hong Kong found that playing video games like “Mario Kart” actually make you a better driver in REAL life.
The researchers say it’s because they train your brain to make decisions that are quick, but also super precise. And those skills translate over once you’re in a real car.
Whatever. I WISH I could throw turtle shells and giant banana peels at other drivers. Then maybe they’d respect me.
We’ve got the results of a survey here that asked people what professions they trust the LEAST . . . and man, there are SO many options, I don’t know how they stopped at just the top 10. Here are the results . . .
- Car salesmen.
- People in advertising.
- Real estate agents.
- Insurance brokers.
- Union leaders.
- Wall Street workers.
- Local and state politicians.
- National politicians.
- TV journalists.
- Newspaper journalists.
So who DO we trust? People in medicine, apparently. The three professions we have the most faith in are nurses . . . doctors . . . and pharmacists.
