“Men are useless and lazy at buying gifts!” says catalogue company

“Men are useless and lazy at buying gifts!” says catalogue company

Christmas is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity to shower your special someone with affection, attention, and (most importantly) gifts. However, some of us are better at buying gifts than others – with men bringing up the rear, present-wise, due to their naturally lazy and unthoughtful nature.

It’s actually quite a shame that men are so unequivocally useless, given how much effort women put into Christmas. Men ought to be ashamed of themselves, and ought to find some kind of way to raise their game when it comes to shopping for gifts…

Even more depressingly, one in ten women will be expected to wrap all of the presents that go under the tree… even their own, according to a survey of 1,000 mums and dads by Littlewoods…

To help men out, Littlewoods have compiled a list of what mothers really want, and it’s topped with jewellery, perfume and handbags.

Oh, thank god for that then! Thank you, Littlewoods, for coming up with the perfect solution to the problem your own research convinced us exists.

“Women love TV more than sex!” says TV service

“Women love TV more than sex!” says TV service

Playing neatly into a stereotype, we have the finding in the Daily Mail that television shows and soaps matter more to women than sex.

Rather than go into detail on why this is utterly ridiculous and genderist nonsense (for example, there’s nothing to stop someone having sex after seeing Coronation Street, not since the Les Battersby left the show), it’s worth instead simply highlighting who this is an advert for:

Gidon Katz, director of NOW TV who commissioned the survey, said: ‘As winter approaches it’s not surprising that a night in is more appealing, and it seems the lure of a new series or the chance to catch up on a show that everyone’s talking about beats going out in the cold.’

If anybody is going to know the importance of television, it’s the director of NOW TV, obviously.
