If Men Had PMS...

Yesterday’s post about the ad campaign aimed at men who ‘suffer’ from PMS, prompted lots of reaction in my Inbox and on Twitter, including the following comment:

Wow.  That insults both men and women.  Quite an achievement.

This reminded me of an old episode of the Channel 4 comedy The IT Crowd in which the men in the office ‘catch’ PMS.

It’s well done and funny.  And actually bears some resemblence to real life. (See? We can laugh at ourselves…)

Check out a clip here. (Sorry it’s not possible to post it directly onto this site).  Or you can stream it – free – from here (although you have to sit through several ads at the beginning).

And if you do watch the whole episode, you’ll see that when the men have PMS, they don’t shrink away and suffer in silence …

  1. Haha. very entertaining little clip! I am all for laughing at ourselves. I laugh every month when I decide "I want to dump my boyfriend" because I know it's just hormones. I live with my brother and my boyfriend, so I mark the calendar in the kitchen with a big "DUE!" on my due date and they know to leave me be that week. It works.
