Sometimes, when you are scrolling through the verdant meme pastures of Facebook or Twitter, a pal shares something so horrifyingly misguided that your only recourse is to stare aghast and wonder how such a thing could ever have come into being. That was the case with the "21 Men Rules That Girls Should Know" list.
1."Men are not mind readers."
2."Learn to work the toilet seat, you're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. You don't hear us complaining when you leave it down."
3."Crying is blackmail."
4."Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!"
5."'Yes' and 'No' are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question."
6."Come to us with problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what girlfriends are for."
7."Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissable in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days."
8."If you think you are fat, you probably are. Don't ask us."

11."Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to during commercials."

14."If I ask what is wrong and you say 'Nothing', we act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle."
15."If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear..."
16."When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really."
17."Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as football or motor sports."
18."You have enough clothes."
19."You have too many shoes."
20."I am in shape, round is a shape!"
21."Thank you for reading this, yes I know, I'm sleeping on the couch tonight... but did you know men don't really mind that? It's like camping..."
