Were you by any chance reading something about Madonna in one of those gossip magazines in the hair salon last Friday?
I was busy reading a book about a lunatic who thinks men have to regain their masculinity by standing up against female domination. The lunatic offers men who want to get rid of their wives a way out by capturing them and keeping them locked up in a pitch dark room for about 7 years, while torturing them and doing a lobotomy on most of the victims.
The lunatic turned out to be a woman who was tortured by her father (he cut off her breasts at one point because "they only get in the way"
) into believing that women are evil and getting in the way of men.
Other thoughts from the book: if you want to get married, you have to pick a woman from S-America, E-Europe (Russia and Romania were mentioned) or most countries in Asia because there, you can still find women who know their place in the household and they know how to
be a slave
treat their man.
I'll scrap the author of that book off my list because it was a bit much.
Madonna was on the Graham Norton show on the BBC Friday evening (which I saw for about 10 seconds - I'm not at all a Madonna fan)
