It’s Friday, and that means answer time! For those of you who have commented with questions from previous ManFAQs, thank you. I’m adding yours to the list of questions women have asked about men over the years, and I will answer them all in turn – to continue to demystify the more malodorous gender for those of the gentler.  Actual questions, posed by real women, and answered by a REAL man. What could go wrong?

Question: I’m sure lots of guys do laundry – why can’t mine seem to make this happen without help?

Answer: Most of us are convinced that the laundry will eventually do itself.  When we were in college, there were documented cases of guys wearing their clothes long enough that the shirts and pants became so imbued with the essence of the guy that they crawled off without him and washed themselves.  We knew this was true because the guy would wake up the next morning and wouldn’t be able to find his clothes anywhere.  (This was usually obvious when he tried to walk the rest of the way home.)  Anyway, it’s the only explanation that makes sense.

So yeah, he’ll get around to it if you’re willing to wait.  It might be easier to get a new blouse, though, if you’re waiting for him to do your laundry also.  Most of us understand laundry at the same level as “rent” and “car payments” – expensive, unpleasant things that can wait until the last possible minute, once a month – like “that” week, but with detergent.

Now you know.  Please, feel free to comment!  Also, forward any questions you’d like answered to BUMD – at – biguglymandoll.com!

Yep, looks like another post from the Big, Ugly Man Doll!
