Hormone problems equal opportunity employer...

Error message

Typically, if a wife stops drinking her husband's Kool-Aid, her husband tells his friends that his wife is having a hormone problem. Recently I was explaining this to a man whose wife has stopped drinking his Kool-Aid. She's always been a godly woman; she believes in submission; she's very feminine and sweet; but she's reached a point in time where she's decided to be a helpmate to her husband by speaking to him of his insensitivity and bullheadedness, which is to say his frequent failure to live with his wife in an understanding way.

You see, men? His wife is having a hormone problem. It's the hormones.

Now we find out apparently men have them too. This headline from today's Washington Post...

Could traders’ hormones be responsible for ‘irrational exuberance’ in global markets?

Dontcha just love it?

So listen up, wives. The next time your husband does that thing he does that blows up your family table or family finances or family vacation, turn to your children and explain to them that Daddy is having a hormone problem—just like those big-boy stockbrokers.
