Survivor for Dads

I received this forward today and although I normally don't even read forwards I did read this one. And it's SO true. To all of you moms out there - good job! To all of you helpful dads out there - thank you!

Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks. 

Each kid will play two sports
and take either music or dance classes. 

There is no fast food.

Each man must take care of his 3 kids;
keep his assigned house clean
correct all homework
complete science projects, 

do laundry, 
and pay a list of 'pretend' bills
with not enough money.

In addition, each man will have to budget enough money for groceries each week.

Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time--no emailing.

Each man must also take each child
to a doctor's appointment,
 dentist appointment
and a
 haircut appointment.

He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Emergency Room

He must also make 
cookies or cupcakes for a school function.

Each man will be responsible for
decorating his own assigned house,
planting flowers outside, and keeping it 
presentable at all times.

The men will only have access to television
when the kids are asleep and all chores are done. 

The men must shave their
 legswear makeup dailyadorn themselves with jewelry, 
wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes
keep fingernails polished, and eyebrows groomed 

During one of the six weeks, the 
men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, backaches, headaches,have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down
from other duties.

They must attend weekly school meetings and church,
and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.

They will need to read a book to the kids each
and in the morning,
feed them,
dress them
brush their teeth
comb their hair
by 7:30 am.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know
all of the following information: 
each child's birthday, height, weight,shoe size, clothes size,  doctor's name, the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child's favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink,  favorite toy, biggest fear, and what they want to be when they grow up.
The kids vote them off the island based on performance. 

The last man wins only if... he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice. If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years, eventually earning the right to be called Mother!
