Fine I'll start off.

Women are like seats, most of the time a pain in the ass.

(remember this is meant to be for fun so don't hurt me )

Men are like..... Copiers.
You need them for reproduction, but that's about it.


Men are like..... High heels.
They're easy to walk on once you get the hang of it.


Men are like..... Horoscopes.
They always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.


Men are like remote controls. Simple. Easy to use. And usually lying around a TV.

Women are like bicycles... You can ride them only so much before you need another one.

Women are like bicycles... Yes, you DO have to do all of the work in order to have fun.

Men are like Snowstorms .... You never know when they're coming, how many inches you'll get, or how long it will last.

Edit: Er, I guess for the most part you know when they're coming.

Women are like bicycles because you need to wear a helmet to ride both of them.

They don't all have to be so negative, I don't want this to be a men vs women thing.

Here.

Women are like road bikes..... pretty, sleek, and smooth to the touch.

Women are like Snow Banks . . . You never know how deep they are, you never know when you'll get stuck in one and they're ice cold.


All in fun!!!!!

Cypress' are like rocks... Dumb, hard-headed, and aren't of much use at all.

Women are like old road bikes, the older the vintage the more desirable they become.

Pheard is like an MC Escher painting - You're unsure of what you're looking at, but whatever it is, it makes you uncomfortable.

Men are like...Ken dolls.
They're fun for a while and when you're tired of them, you can rip their heads off!

Not that I'm bitter or anything....

I think Salvador Dali would fit that analogy better. An infinite staircase or a waterfall that drains into itself have never made me feel all that uncomfortable.
