The next Survivor series....

Six married men

will be dropped on an island
with one car
and 3 kids each
  for six weeks..

Each kid will play two sports
and take either music or dance classes.

There is no fast food.
Each man must
take care of his 3 kids;
keep his assigned house clean,
correct all homework,
complete science projects,
do laundry,
and pay a list of 'pretend' bills
with not enough money.

In addition,
each man
will have to budget

enough money 
for groceries each week.

Each man
must remember the birthdays
of all their friends and relatives,
and send cards out on time--no emailing.

Each man must also take each child
to a doctor's appointment,
a dentist appointment
and a
haircut appointment.

He must make one unscheduled and
inconvenient visit per child to the Emergency Room.

He must also make
cookies or cupcakes
for a school function at a moment's notice.

Each man will be responsible for
decorating his own assigned house,

planting flowers outside, and keeping it
presentable at all times.

The men will only have access to television
when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.

The men must shave their legs

wear makeup daily
adorn themselves with jewelry,

wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes
keep fingernails polished,
 and eyebrows groomed

During one of the six weeks,

men will have to endure severe
abdominal cramps, backaches, headaches,
have extreme, unexplained mood swings
but never once complain or slow down
from other duties.

They must attend weekly school meetings
and church,
and find time at least once to spend
the afternoon at the park
or a similar 

They will need to read a book to the kids each night
and in the morning,
feed them,
dress them,
brush their teeth and
comb their hair
by 7:30 am.
A test will be given
at the end of the six weeks,
and each father will be required to know
all of the following information:
each child's
height, weight,
shoe size, clothes size,
doctor's name,
the child's weight at birth,
length, time of birth,
and length of labor,
each child's favorite color,
middle name,
favorite snack,
favorite song,
favorite drink,
favorite toy,
biggest fear,

and what they want to be when they grow up.

The kids vote them off the island based on performance.

The last man wins only if...
he still
has enough energy
to be intimate with his spouse
at a moment's notice...

If the last man does win,
he can play the game over and over and over
again for the next 18-25 years,
eventually earning the right
to be called Mother!

  11. Excellent post. Men would not be able to handle that island, the kids, the responsibilities, or anything else associated with the "game".

  12. Brilliant! I'd give them less than 24 hours before either they gave up, or it descended into chaos!

  13. Six weeks? They will have to take it off the air after one as there will be no contestants left. No man could survive for long.

    Have a great weekend,

  14. that's rather creative and fun,
    you have it illustrated very nicely...

  15. OMG!! That is sooooo funny! They would be in the fetal position after one day...if they lasted that long.

  16. How long would any of 'em last..I like to see, ha! ha! ha! What a delicious read...ha! ha! ha!


  17. Thank you for visiting Mama's Little Chick! I just got two more bathing suits today! They are just too cute! Your blog is so cute and pretty at the same time!

  18. Hehe, I'd love to see a man go through what we women do. Now that would be funny. =))

  19. Six weeks...they would be lucky to last 6 hours. Most would be begging to be the 1st eliminated. Cute post!

  20. Tooo funny, loved it. Your blog is looking great!

  21. This was 2 cute, there isn't a man alive that would follow those rules. They would just quit and say the heck with it!

  22. Too cute & hilarious would be an understatement to describe this awesome blog post!

    Great job in accurately describing us moms!!!!

    Hmmm...wonder if any dad actually passed that test now that I think about it...

  23. Oh, thanks in advance for the follow-back!
