Frankly at my middle age, I don't care. I like bacon, beer and my babe.

By the way, I did perform a search, no hits and a Happy New Year.

Man this Nog goes really good with left-over's.

Only so many hours in the day to do what needs to be done. Frankly, a six-pack of abs is low down on the goal list....

Abs? I dunno - maybe a birth defect. Not sure I was born with any. Even my baby pictures show no abs at all.

Hitchhiker: You heard of this thing, the 8-Minute Abs?

Ted: Yeah, sure, 8-Minute Abs. Yeah, the excercise video.

Hitchhiker: Yeah, this is going to blow that right out of the water. Listen to this: 7... Minute... Abs.

Ted: Right. Yes. OK, all right. I see where you're going.

Hitchhiker: Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin' there, there's 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?

Ted: I would go for the 7.

Hitchhiker: Bingo, man, bingo. 7-Minute Abs. And we guarantee just as good a workout as the 8-minute folk.

Ted: You guarantee it? That's - how do you do that?

Hitchhiker: If you're not happy with the first 7 minutes, we're gonna send you the extra minute free. You see? That's it. That's our motto. That's where we're comin' from. That's from "A" to "B".

Ted: That's right. That's - that's good. That's good. Unless, of course, somebody comes up with 6-Minute Abs. Then you're in trouble, huh?

[Hitchhiker convulses]

Hitchhiker: No! No, no, not 6! I said 7. Nobody's comin' up with 6. Who works out in 6 minutes? You won't even get your heart goin, not even a mouse on a wheel.

Ted: That - good point.

Hitchhiker: 7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea. It's like you're dreamin' about Gorgonzola cheese when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

Ted: Why?

Hitchhiker: 'Cause you're fired!

I am a defect I guess. Most of my male relatives (am a male too) have always had good tone, muscule development or even noticeable muscle. I never seemed to have any no matter what I did and I tried the exercise and weight lifting a few times for weeks and months through the years.

Too many six packs of Sam Admans ruins a six pack of abs.

No six-pak here - it’s more of a keg.

There aren’t 10 reasons.

There only two:

Calories in exceed calories burned.

No emphasis on Abcersise....

That and maybe drinking too much, eating too much and generally laying around.

I dunno...

Everyone has abs, the question is if your body fat is low enough to be able to see them.

If there's one fitness goal that almost every GAY man goes to the gym in hopes of achieving, it's a ripped set of abs.

Fixed it.
