    First of all, Roger, any man with half a functioning brain cell knows never to answer that question — and certainly knows enough to quit when he’s ahead if he is dumb enough to answer it. And second, Andy — why do women always ask men that question when they know full well that they don’t really want to know the honest answer? If you want to know whether something makes you look fat, ask one of your female friends, and leave us poor men out of it!

    If Roger were smarter, he’s explain that he was using the word “phat”.

    But if Roger asked Andy … would he get a tactful answer? It often seems to only work one way.

    Andy looks fat?? Must be the mirror.

    Andy looks fat to Andy … and that’s all that matters. This is true for most women (and many men) … but especially true for Andy.

    Gads, I HATE this stereotype! If I ask my husband how an outfit looks on me, I expect an honest answer. (HOW honest an answer depends on how much coffee he’s had.) I would rather hear from him “That doesn’t look good” than have him lie to me, then go out looking sloppy. If you don’t want an honest answer…don’t ask the question.

    K.C. – exactly. I expect my husband to tell me if something makes me look like a sausage with breathing problems. And he does.

    My wife expects the same, but I do try to do it gently, more along the lines of “those pants are not very flattering”. You also need to comment to the positive when appropriate.

    ROGER!!! When a woman asks that question, you simply say “No, dear, you look wonderful. I really don’t know how you do it.” Never mind the fact that you’re picturing the words GOODYEAR emblazoned across her. :)

    Jason replaced it with one of those carnival mirrors. :)

    A woman at work once asked me if the pants she was wearing made her butt look fat. I said, “No; all the ho-hos you eat make your butt look fat.”

    Yet another example of where absolute truth is a bad thing.

    Roger thinks that he himself looks like Brad Pitt or Viggo Mortensen. Pay no mind to his opinion of anyone else’s looks.
