Speaking of women smiling …

To follow on from my last post, here is a recent article at the Stepford Wives Community:

A Stepford Wife Is Not Complete Without Her Smile….

I have never been completely sure what level of irony that site is at. I think they are at least semi-serious, although some of the advice seems to descend into (conscious?) self-parody. In any case, I do wonder why they illustrate an article about the need for wives to smile as they go about their duties with pictures like this:

Perhaps they should ask their husbands for guidance. The site is either a clever parody or precisely the sort of half-baked thing one would expect a group of American housewives to produce in their spare time.

In any case, whatever the level of irony intended, if any, it is an enjoyable site to poke around.
