How To Use The Internet | Mana Blog... for all
Sep 12, 2012

This one comes via The Atlantic. Someone at the France office of the Dummies publishing house realised that women haven't quite figured out how to use the Net, so they published a Dummies book for female dummies.

It's so hilarious, we're tempted to think it's a hoax (or a joke). From the screenshot, the cover says that (French female dummies) "will no longer have anything to be jealous of men for!" Apparently, the book is "Free of boring, technical considerations," and it promises to give the dumb-blonde type "only the minimum tools necessary to survive in this hostile environment" (of the Internet).

Almost as interesting is the fact that there's a different book for male Dummies. That one, apparently, does go into difficult technicalities. (Check out the article).

The French are pretty tradition-bound, come to think of it.
