Dear Prudence, a weekly advice column appearing in Slate, is written by Margo Howard, the daughter of the late, great Ann Landers. This you may well already know. But for the past year, a Frayster named Isonomist has been publishing her own wicked, brilliant and pointed versions of the Prudie column, Isolutions. Here's today's serving, along with a personal favorite.

doodahman did it first and did it better. His My Two Cents columns, the original Dear Prudence parodies, were the best things in the Fray. More here.

That's awesome. I've been reading Dear Prudence for years (nothing strokes the ego like reading about other people's problems and silently passing judgment on them), and I never knew these existed. Thanks!

I like these. Out of all the advice columns I've read, I don't think I've seen more stupid advice than that from Dear Prudence.
