"Noodle Soup for the Pissed-Off Soul"

If I were ever going to write a book, that would be the title. One of  the selections would be a "Gender Quiz." Have you ever marveled at the behavior differences in the male and female of our species? Fascinating, isn't it?

Take the "Gender Quiz" and see for yourself:
