- CLEAN UP YER ACT! That's right! Take a shower every week and scrub that
grit off! The smelly caveman look so popular last season is definitely
- GET A NICKNAME! That's right! Nothing piques the curiosity of a woman
like an evocactive nickname. Tatoo it on your chest for easy reference.

- "BIG PEE WEE"
- "JANITOR IN A DRUM"

- SHOW HER WHO'S BOSS! Watch out! This one's a doozy, what with all the
ding-dang fuss over "equality," "freedom," and "justice." But if you stick to

times, she'll get the message. Remember: some women are easier to fool than
