This one is for the ladies just in time for Halloween.  I hope this helps your rationalization  (and gives you a good laugh....or at least a chuckle.)

WHY PUMPKINS ARE BETTER THAN MEN (according to the ladies): From the start you know a pumpkin has an empty, mush filled head to begin with. If he starts smelling up the place, you can just throw him out. One usually make a better pie. No matter what your mood is, pumpkins will greet you with a smile. Finally: Every year you get a brand new crop to choose from.

There you go ladies, Try as I might I'm finding it hard to disagree, so Happy Halloween.
