David F. sent in this photo of an ad on a wall outside of a fancy restaurant at Easton Town Center in suburban Columbus, Ohio. It nicely reproduces the stereotype that women never shut up, and that men who love them find this wildly annoying. So annoying, apparently, that they will buy her a diamond just for a moment of peace.
Title, by the way, totally adapted from David’s subject line.
NEW! (Feb. ’10): Turns out diamonds are also good if you love her but are a “regular” guy who doesn’t want to have to be all, you know, thoughtful and shit (sent in by Jamie Lynn C.):
More reasons for men to buy women diamonds: to get laid, to get out of the doghouse, so she isn’t disappointed in you, and to prove you love her. And, if you’re a woman, you need one, for your left right hand, to show how liberated you are.
