Advantages to keeping a Swiss Man


Edited:
Well this group are called the "Silver Fountains" and live in Kerzers FR.
A friend brought them to play at my birthday.
Do Swiss music players make good husbands?

Now its the ladies' turn...

Re: Advantages to keeping a Swiss Man

They main advantage of keeping a Swiss man (I am a very fine specimen myself as evidenced in my profile picture) is that women don't have to pretend to have a sense of humour, we don't appreciate it anyway.

No, they do appreciate it. Laugh a bit too hard then explain the joke back to you to prove they got it.

Re: Advantages to keeping a Swiss Man

One big advantage of keeping a Swiss Man is that hes not much of a man, so theres one less thing in the life of a woman to moan about. No man issues!

Any woman who is married to a Swiss and complains about the man, is a liar or atleast distorting facts a bit.

Am I the only one questioning their choice of name for the band?

From the picture I'd say they might make good partners for non-heterosexual relationships...
