Pound for pound, women a better value.

There's a government survey out on salary comparisons between men and women for the period from 1979 - 2007. And congratulations, ladies, you're worth only 20% less than a man for comparable work!

But given my weight and the weight of my girlfriend, pound for pound, at 20% less money, she's a much better deal as a potential employee than me.

And with Halloween and Thanksgiving around the corner, her value should keep going up as I become a super-fat holiday bastard.

The article says, "The women's-to-men's earnings ratio among 35- to 44-year-olds, for example, rose from 58 percent in 1979 to 77 percent in 2007, and the ratio for 45- to 54-year-olds increased from 57 percent to 75 percent."

This is really nothing to celebrate, since women still make less than men, except it explains why Maude is no longer on TV.
