No Girl Left Behind

July 16, 2010 at 6:14 pm (A Time to Laugh) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )


Ladies, a crisis is upon us.

Here at the Pearls and Diamonds blog, we were entirely ignorant both of the crisis and of our patriotic duty to take a stand and right it.

Until today.

Visiting the “No Girl Left Behind Website” and learning of the Marriage Crisis…left no doubt as to the wisdom of the solution “proposed.”  Government is always good at solving “problems.”

We encourage you to visit the website and join the campaign.  Or at least the laughter.

    Oh my word!!! That is HYSTERICAL!!! But what about the girls who don’t WANT to get married? 😉
    No girl gets left behind…wow.

    The girls who don’t want to get married…who make too many rejections…get fined. 🙂

    My favorite part of the legislation:

    “To prevent any girl being left behind, no girl shall be asked for multiple times until each girl in her district has been asked for once. Every young lady asked shall be given 10 business days to respond (if she files late, it shall be assumed that she has accepted). If it is deemed that too many applications have been rejected, the young lady must wear a scarlet “P” to indicate to future suiters that she is picky. ”

    Fun stuff! Thanks for sharing!

    ..”it seems like more young men are getting married than young women…”

    However do they manage that??

    Thanks for sharing =)

    Kerra–laughing or crying depends on whether you are one of the girls who WANTS to get married or one who is going to be fined. 😉

    Renee–Did you get labeled with a “P”? At least you were married young, so everyone’s happy. 😉

    Aaslaug–Well, you know…sometimes it seems that way. 😉 When I was growing up I heard lots of worried girls/families commenting on how there were so many more young ladies than young men. The odd thing is, in my experience, I’ve known about three times as many young men as young women. How about the rest of ya’ll?
