Excerpts From Rants

Excerpts from "The Rants", by Dennis Miller

I know the myth is that men want
Traci Lords in the bedroom,
Julia Child in the kitchen,
Hazel around the house,
Lesley Visser during a game,
Mary Poppins for the children,
Cha Cha Muldowney in traffic,
Dr. Quinn, Medicine Chick when we're sick,
Mary Richards at work,
Mother Theresa when we come home with leprosy,
Gertrude Stein in conversation,
the body of Sophia Loren in 'Boy on a Dolphin' combined with the voice of Sade,
and to top it all off,
the IQ of Anna Nicole Smith, because of course we don't want to feel too threatened.

All right, I'm not supposed to do this. I'm not supposed to reveal the master list to all you non-tripods, but what the hell; here goes:

Here's what men want from women. One through Ten:

  1. We want you to understand that we don't give a s--- about clothes, all right? Yours OR ours. All we need is one pair of tennies and one pair of church shoes. That's it.
  2. Don't talk to us while the television is on, all right? Very simple: Television is off, we talk. Television is on, we don't talk.
  3. When you're behind the wheel of a car, if you want to get aggressive, that's fine, but don't give somebody the finger and expect me to defend your honor when Steroid Lad comes over swinging a pair of nunchucks, all right?
  4. Would it kill you to watch 'The Godfather' with me for the fifty-seventh time?
  5. Hey I'm sorry, but some of us see a beautiful sunset and think, "You know, I betcha my accountant is boning me up the ass."
  6. You go see Nell by yourself, all right? I met enough chicks like that at The Drink when I was single.
  7. Have a sense of humor. Without a sense of humor, a relationship lasts about as long David Duke at a Black Panther meeting.
  8. Work out your job-related anger before we have sex. Just because Helmut, the office boy, brought you the cup of lima bean consomme instead of the bowl of lima bean consomme from Soup Plantation, I don't want to end up in the friction burn groin ward at Cedars-Sinai, all right?
  9. Don't ask us to cry. As much as you say you want us to cry, you don't really want us to cry. You hate it when we cry. I've tried crying in front of my wife. She enjoyed it for about thirty seconds and then started thinking, "Why in the f--- did I marry this hamster?"
  10. be patient. Hold us. Love us unconditionally. Help us out of this testosterone-induced fog we dwell in and lead us into the light. Or if that's asking too much, how's about a big sloppy b---j-- once in a while?

Equal time -- Here is what Dennis Miller says women really want in his Rants book.

Let's see, the myth is that women want
Brad Pitt in the bedroom,
Brad Pitt in the kitchen,
Brad Pitt around the house,
Brad Pitt during a game,
Brad Pitt when they're sick,
Brad Pitt in conversation,
the body of Brad Pitt in 'Legends of the Fall' combined with the voice of Brad Pitt,
and to top it all off the IQ of Fabio on two bottles of NyQuil.

Another myth is that a woman must be married by a certain age or she'll never find stability. Hey, I've got news for you, ladies: looking to men for stability is like going to Crispin Glover for psychoanalysis, all right?

Now I'll be the first to admit that men's advice on women is about as reliable as an M-16 in the mud, but this is what I kinda sorta, maybe think women want from men.

  1. Foreplay is not a privilege; it is a birthright.
  2. If you take her out to a fancy restaurant, don't try to subtly steer her away from the lobster, Dimond Jim.
  3. Quit blowing smoke up women's asses about the sanctity and power they possess as lifegivers and come up with some decent affordable child care. That way, maybe poor single mothers can go to work and get off welfare and we won't have to listen to any more a--holes in Congress blathering about orphanages.
  4. Equal work for equal pay. Look around you at work, guys. Look at...say Carl, the brain-dead jagoff in the cubicle next to you. You could kill Carl, couldn't you, because he's a slacking, worthless, toady idiot. Now imagine making 30 percent less than Carl. Hellooo....
  5. This is very important: During lovemaking: Don't ask, "Who's your daddy?" Even as a joke. All right? It's not funny.
  6. When her mouth moves, pay attention, words could be coming out. Words are kind of important.
  7. Pass a law that makes it compulsory for all over-the-hill rock stars to have women their own age in their videos.
  8. Don't ask her if she came. You're a big boy now, Clouseau, you should know if she came.
  9. Don't tell her how to merge and she won't tell you to ask for directions.
  10. When she catches you cheating on her and cuts off your dick in your sleep, take it like a man.
So, guys, at the end of the what women want is this: equal pay, fair treatment, respect, patience, sensitivity, passion and a genuine effort at understanding who they really are. Or if that's too much to ask, how about a big f---ing diamond the size of your head?
