This Is What A Man Is

Or so says Esquire. (Skip the little ad that comes up first)

An amusing, short little read.

Did they miss anything?

How nice of Esquire to take time away from printing metrosexual fashion tips and pictures of smoothboys to tell us how to be men.


Yes, they missed:
A man doesn’t read Esquire.

Some were spot-on. Some were bullshit. Such is life.

A man knows exactly how much to tip.

A man is not just a penis.

He is also a gallbladder. And a larynx.

And much, much more.

“I’m a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.”


So, like, women shouldn’t have to accept the consequences of their actions? I don’t get it.

Ah, never mind.

The French like to eat eggs.

That doesn’t mean the Chinese don’t eat eggs, too.

Actually this is what a man is. I dare any man not to make a video to pass on awareness when they see Jessica Biel (or someone else, but she’s what did it for me) holding their picture in the video saying “[your name] is a real man!”

The cause too, of course, I’m 100% behind, and a great way to spread awareness. Because who doesn’t want to be a “real man”, even a geek like me?

A man does not wear flip-flops in public.

Other than that, it’s pretty right on.

Distinguishing the difference between males and men. While I don’t agree with everything written, there is in my experience a definite difference.

Boddah you? Why you no like da kine?

I’m just going to quote the bits I think are mistaken, misleading, or outright lies.

*A man can always find something good to watch on television.

A man knows how to sneak a look at cleavage and doesn’t care if he gets busted once in a while.

A man does not wither at the thought of dancing. But it is generally to be avoided. *

There also needed to be something in there about killing bears.

I notice that no real men are liberals either.

Mostly crap. Played all of the angles in order to satisfy any man.

And I don’t think I saw anything in the article about backing with mirrors.

Shouldn’t they be ‘slippahs’, instead of ‘flip flops’?

What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets!
