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.
