Wouldn't work on me

Wives, if you want your men to do all the housework in 2005, buy them plasma TVs for Christmas.

A new survey by plasma-maker Panasonic found that 36 percent of married men would do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry and other chores around the house for a year if their wives bought them the coveted TVs.

"I'd do it for two years!" said Jerry Longo of Danbury, Conn., as he surveyed the plasma screens at a Best Buy on Sixth Avenue in Chelsea yesterday.

Other possible benefits for women who give the gift of plasma:

* Half of married men would let in-laws visit whenever they want.

* Fifty-seven percent would let their wives pick their vacation spots.
This must be serious!

My difficulty with the whole premise is that there has to be something worth watching on these multi-thousand dollar beauties to make them worth the investment and I'm stumped as to what that might be. It sure as heck can't be Dan Rather.
