Honey, I'm home!

OK... According to the 'June Cleaver-esque' information at the other end of this link, it would appear that, sadly, feminism is officially dead. Everyone stop CPR... I'm calling it... Time of death: 5:38 PM.

The [apparently all-male] editors over at Family Circle Magazine seem to think that women's suffrage means being able to vote on which presidential candidate's wife has the tastier cookie recipe!

What's next, a contest to see which potential First Lady can look more solicitous handing her hubby his double martini as he walks through the door after a hard day at the office?

I have to say... it's gonna to be really hard to decide who to waste my absentee ballot on this November!

Yes, this is disturbing. But Family Circle definitely never touted itself as a feminist magazine. Or serious literature.

And I am so voting for Teresa Heinz Kerry's Pumpkin Spice cookies! Not sure about her husband, but those cookies look divine!

I am frightened that both you and Chuck from "There's Pie in the Lunchroom"--a mere day apart--have a blog with the same exact headline of "Honey I'm home".

It's not a good enough line to *steal* so I know neither one of you did, but still. Scary.

Thank you Noa! Quod erat demonstrandum. :-)

Hi Jim.,

Chuck was going for that whole edgy, Jack Nicholson thing. I was trying for a more Ward Cleaver (instead of meat cleaver) tone. But hey, anytime you want to mention me in the same sentence with Chuck, that's fine with me.

Ah, Family Circle. Definitely what Noa said about it not being at the forefront of feminism.

I don't have time right now, but actually my first thought was to look for subliminal messages in those recipies...

no, no this is PERFECT. Let's stop all this political yammering. Do we really believe what either one of these guys says on the election trail? But cookies - now there is something you can actually taste.
That's it. Thats gonna be my method. I am making both recipies and the winner will get my vote in Novemeber.
(oops...Did I notice Laura's had chocolate chunks in them. Oh well, I have stopped eating chocolate - well, I will have to settle for pumpkin then)

Glad that I don't have to take part in the circus which Americans call an election!

Teresa Heinz Kerry's cookies will be on my table (or in my mouth) by Friday. I even happen to have a leftover can of pumpkin from Thanksgiving.

"Glad that I don't have to take part in the circus which Americans call an election!"

...as opposed to the sober, majestic pageant that is the Israeli electoral system. :-)

But Gil -- you can joyfully partake in this far more authentic election --- no need for American citizenship.
