Sorry, but that just doesn't help the rest of us who aren't married to Deep Woods Barbie.
I am a very lucky man, I won't argue with that

But Deep Woods Barbie, while very funny, isn't that kinda sexist too? This stuff is just confusing. I think I am going to go sailing, see if my wife will run the tiller while I grind. Does that make me less manly?
