A Magazine for the Modern Lady's Hectic Schedule

Here's a publication no one should be without: Four Weeks is a new monthly magazine that includes a variety of articles in four categories customized for the four weeks of a woman's menstrual cycle.

In week 1, the magazine informs us, ladies like things to be "Fun, Familiar," and in subsequent weeks "Exciting, Exotic," "Indulgent, Introspective," and "Cautious, Caring," respectively.

A yummy treat for a lady in week 4
This is information that could be very useful to any smart fellow as well, as it is obviously disastrous for a chap to give his lady fair a gift that is of the wrong type for her particular week of the month. We've all been forced to puzzle through the mystery of the wrong-week gift, haven't we?

Also of great interest is the magazine's Hormone Horoscope, which deftly combines two things of utter inscutability into an easily understood guide to life.

Thanks, gals!

That certainly clears up a lot of things, especially the DIY suggestions. I was supposed to be making a Wonder Woman snowglobe last week, not a bookshelf. God knows what will happen if I have to fix the toilet in week three, I'll probably put piranhas in the bowl.

They should display this at the grocery checkout counter next to Weekly World News, which this week has a feature titled "Woman's Biological Clock Keeps Entire Neighborhood Awake"

Oh, my. A 20- or 30-year subscription to the magazine should be included among every batch of wedding gifts, and even more thoughtful than ordering up a stripper for the bachelor party.
