"Despite what Mr. Jackson would have you believe, I am not an evil-hearted woman who will not let him be," Dobbs told reporters. "I repeat: I am not an evil-hearted woman who will not let him be. To the contrary, my lovin' is so sweet, it tastes just like the apple off the tree."

I saw this lying on a counter at the Strand yesterday. The blues singer line made me laugh out loud.

But what do you think of "How Can I Use Feminism To My Advantage?"

This one was up earlier in the week, and while reading it and chuckling, I thought, "I bet Ann Althouse would have something good to say about this."

"Area Woman Didn't Say That, You Said That" is my favorite, right behind "Women Now Liberated By Everything A Woman Does."

I've e-mailed it to every female in my address book...

"Columbia House Medication Plan",
"Skipping Breakfast with Nicole Ritchie", and the "70% of Compliments are Sarcastic" video: Brilliant!!!

Love the article too. Perfect.
