This was sent to me, no idea if it's true ~

Here are the Five Rules for Men to follow for a Happy Life that Russell J Larsen had inscribed on his headstone in Logan, Utah.

He died not knowing that he would win the "Coolest Headstone" contest.


1. it’s important to have a woman, who helps at home, cooks from time to
time, cleans up, and has a job.

2. it’s important to have a woman who can make you laugh.

3. it’s important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn't lie to

4. it’s important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with

5. it’s very, very important that these four women do not know each other
or you could end up dead like me.

I'm guessing that Russell wasn't a member of the Latter Day Saints.

Well, I had to google it and found....

Bit of a difference in the wording, but still obvious he liked the ladies...

Of course, the 'rules' might have been inscribed on the other side... :-)

EDIT: No they weren't, both sides shown here:

An old cowboy sat down at the bar and ordered a drink.
As he sat sipping his drink a young woman sat down next to him.

“Are you a real cowboy?” she asked.

He replied “Well, I’ve spent my whole life breaking colts; working cows; going to rodeos; fixing fences; pulling calves; baling hay; doctoring calves; cleaning the barn; fixing flats; working on tractors and feeding my dogs”
So I guess that makes me a real cowboy.”

She said “I’m a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women.
As soon as I get up in the morning I think about women.
When I shower I think about women, when I watch TV I think about women.
I even think about women when I eat. It seems that everything makes me think about women.”

The two sat sipping in silence.

A little while later a man came along and sat down on the other side of the old cowboy.

“Are you a real cowboy?” he asked.

The cowboy replied “I always thought I was, but I’ve just found out that I’m a lesbian”
