Wisdom About Women, by Eric J. Smith

“I’m quite the ladies’ man.”

“Meaning?”

“I know a lot about women.”

“For example?”

“You can’t mention their new hair-do or outfit unless it’s complimentary.”

“And?”

“You can’t ever, repeat ever, mention they look as if they might have gained weight.”

“And?”

“You never tell a woman she looks like a movie star—particularly a star as she looks in a given film.”

“I’ll bite, why?”

“She might hate that actress—maybe not her looks—but her personality as portrayed in the press, or she might hate the character the actress played in the film.”

“I think you’re onto something.”
