MALE HUSBANDRY

Slapstick advice intended to increase the tortures of marriage and to further confuse and confound conjugal rationality is written here in the quasi-serious vein of joke-page quips and sketches seen in many of our leading magazines. The material is directed to women, the faultless, sex, whose main task it is to get a man to do what he should. This includes dish drying, spending more money on the family, helping with the children, being generally sensible and so forth. The tactics to be employed are of the more devious variety- the well timed sigh or moan, flattering the boss's wife, a studied unpredictability, etc. A guaranteed counter-irritant to the unirritating aspects of home life; an acceptable release for the error committers who prefer to laugh at rather than to alleviate their miseries.
