I don't know what it is about men, but they take whatever you say and then apply it in the most literal, oversimplified way possible. Whether it's instructions that they don't quite understand or when they reply to "do you want chicken or beef for dinner?" with a simple "yes," it seems to be a common problem. At best, it's cute. At worst, it's downright infuriating. 

For the poor women forever shackled to their lovable little numbskulls, the only thing they can really do is laugh about it.

Hey, it works, right? I'm actually kinda curious about whether there would be any difference.

After all, some of the best inventions started with someone doing something the wrong way.

2. His idea of "playing with the baby."

No, playing on your iPad doesn't count. I also like how he's the one hanging out on the little play mat. 

I think I now know what it was like to be this guy's younger sibling.


3. This poor guy thought you could dry a shirt in the microwave. I wish!

Well, if anyone asks, he could always say those burns are part of the style. Just use a made-up term like "post-distressed" and they'll never know the difference.

4. The wife asked him to pack a bag for the baby -_-

Yeah, yeah, don't give us that look, smart guy. You know what you did here.

Uh... at least the baby won't get a sunburn now? Look, I'm trying for you, dude.
