I can't find the clip any longer, but there's a great one where the driver (blonde, of course ) steps out of the car she's just wrecked, looks around helplessly, retrieves her handbag from the drivers seat, and just starts brushing her hair. Priceless!

The thing is — men have many more serious car accidents than women do.

Consider this, from an article in U.S. News & World Report last December:
Unintentional injury is the third-leading cause of death among American men, after heart disease and cancer, according to 2004 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And up to age 44, it is the leading cause of death for men. Women get injured too, of course. But about twice as many men die each year because of accidents as do women. Motor vehicle crashes are the most common type; they killed about 29,648 men and 13,748 women in 2004, the most recent data available. About four times as many men as women drown. And some eight times as many die mishandling firearms. Researchers have calculated that if men below the age of 50 could simply get their accident mortality rates down to that of women, they would, in one fell swoop, eliminate a third of deaths in that age group.


As for foolish behavior, there was a story a few months ago about a guy who tried to loosen a lug nut by shooting at it. Bullet hit the wheel, ricocheted, and put him in the hospital. Not sure if he was a blonde, though.

That'll be up to the women to post. Fair's fair.

Not that you'll lack for material.
