The myth of Man Flu. We have all experienced the phenomena of a man getting sick with some measly cold, little indigestion or a headache and exaggerating the symptoms so much, that we start to worry if they are on their death bed. Though men really do like being taken care of (hence lying in bed for a week in a recovery of the common cold), it has recently been scientifically proven, that some diseases do get men sicker than women. It all just has to do with women having superior immune systems that are not so easily affected by viruses. Now, we don't want to ruin the fun of mocking the ever-so-strong male getting bed-bound by a runny nose, so we've compiled the absolute best of the manfluenza cases below.

And while boyfriends and husbands might say that they are suffering the pains of childbirth times ten when having a man cold, their partners tend to look and their cries for help in a rather unsympathetic way. Probably because us ladies, when hit by flu, still manage to go to work, take care of the children and the 'dying' husbands. Actually, their whining gives us a good chance for a funny meme or two.

Below you'll find a list of the best bed-bound husband memes, slowly dying and greatly suffering boyfriend memes and men memes of heroes who have survived the manfluenza.

The poor man is evading the Grim Reaper here, and all you, his adoring wife, can do is makes jokes at his expense. My heart goes out to a fallen brother... :(

I once was recovering from an open (bones sticking out) compound (more than one) , surgically repaired (second of six) ankle break that had required a bone transplant to repair. I was under Dr. Orders to only use my crutches to get to the bathroom and away from fire or flood. My fella had a upset tummy, (heartburn) and asked " could you please go to the refrigerator and get me a gingerale?" I looked at him, waiting for it to sink in, and after a minute, I bopped him on the head with my crutch.

OK, I read all of these, but I just don't get it! My mother died when I was 5 YO, and I was single for 20+ years ... never had any of these "man problems". PS, my wife and I are deeply in love!!!
