*From my awesome sister in-law, Shirl (in New York!)...

"Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.

Each kid will play two sports and either take music
or dance classes.

There is no fast food.

Each man must take care of his 3 kids;
keep his assigned house clean,
correct all homework,
and complete science projects,
cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills
with not enough money.

In addition, each man
will have to budget in money
for groceries each week.

Each man
must remember the birthdays
of all their friends and relatives,
and send cards out on time--no emailing.

Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment, a dentist appointment
and a haircut appointment.

He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient
visit per child to the Urgent Care.

He must also make cookies or cupcakes
for a social function.

Each man will be responsible for
decorating his own assigned house,
planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable
at all times.

The men will only have access to television
when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.

The men must shave their legs,
wear makeup daily, adorn himself with jewelry,
wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes,
keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed.

During one of the six weeks,
the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or
slow down from other duties.

They must attend weekly school meetings,
shul, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.

They will need to read a book to the kids
each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them,
brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information:
each child's birthday,
height, weight,
shoe size, clothes size
and doctor's name.
Also the child's weight at birth,
length, time of birth,
and length of labor,
each child's favorite color,
middle name,
favorite snack,
favorite song,
favorite drink,
favorite toy,
biggest fear and
what they want to be when they grow up.

The kids vote them off the island
based on performance.
The last man wins only if...
he still has enough energy
to be intimate with his spouse
at a moment's notice."

If the last man does win,
he can play the game over and over
and over again for the next 18-25 years
eventually earning the right
To be called Mother!

After you get done laughing,
send this to as many females as you
think will get a kick out of it and
as many men as you think can
handle it.
Just don't send it back to me.... I'm going to bed.

That is totally funny Dolly. I had a good laugh for that one. Too bad I don't actually accomplish all of that or else I would probably send it on to my husband! =)
