Joke of the Day

A recent scientific study found that women find different male faces attractive depending on where they are in their menstural cycle.
For example  when a women is ovulating she will prefer a man with rugged, masculine features.
However when she is menstruating she will prefer a man doused in gas and set on fire, with scissors stuck in his eye and a broom shoved up his backside.
