Male Curse Worse Than Impotence (limerick)

I’d rather be cargo of hearse

The suffer this male ego’s curse

And men you would too

When it comes to you

And wife asks you to hold her purse

I think it is somewhere in the wedding vows, "To honor and cherish

and hold your wife's purse". Yep, pretty sure it is in there.

Great limerick!!

Mr. B had no problem carrying my purse into the doctor's to get my cast changed on my broken leg last week. Bless his heart.

So many guys are carrying the messenger-type "man bag" these days, the only problem is if a wife's bag is floral like the one in the photo. Otherwise, people will think it's your own!
