This is a few weeks old, but I've been meaning to post it here... finally doing it...
:: As International Women’s Day is celebrated, the Vatican had a novel message for the women of the world: give thanks for the washing machine. This humble domestic appliance had done more for the women’s liberation movement than the contraceptive pill or working outside the home, said the the official Vatican newspaper, Osservatore Romano. ::
This is quite hilarious to me, because I often feel that I am enslaved to my washing machine, rather than the other way around.
Why hide your light under a bushel of bears, I ask you?
