Men should avoid following any list that tells them what to do.

Yet, they are fun to read.

I disagree about item (1). When boys fight the loser ends up with a black eye. When men fight both parties get hurt. When men really fight it’s with weapons and it’s for keeps. That’s why it isn’t a good idea. Only a lazy and degenerate society needs to re-learn this lesson.

Yielding all territory ,real or imagined, to a single drawer, would leave one with very little to fight for at that point.

Sometimes they both, winner and loser, end up with a black eye. Nothing wrong with getting hit by a lucky shot.

A black eye. Unless the rim hits your face mid-dunk

Olympic dreams. Exceptions: curling and archery.

Curling? Fahgetaboutit.

Plenty of acceptable Olympic sports -- alpine skiing, biathlon (shooting and cross country skiing), wrestling....to name but a few.

2. A witty e-mail signature.

Does the Pledge of Allegiance count?

9. Less than $20 in his wallet. Fiduciary nudity is negligence. A real man should always carry a business card and enough dough to pick up coffee, bagels, and the Sunday paper without whipping out the plastic.

I almost never carry cash. Why? Because I worked as a bank teller for eleven months, and I have processed overnight cash deposits from a gentleman's club.

That said, carrying a business card might be a good idea. Buying a Sunday paper, especially if it's The New York Times or The Washington Post, is usually a bad idea.

14. Code words for ugly women. Actually, code words for anything.

Not guilty!

By the way, a grown man should never sport an Obama or Hillary bumper sticker on his car.

Naw, that won't count and as long as you are not carrying lip gloss or hair gel in there along with the 9 mm you are AOK

A grown man should avoid speaking like a 20-year-old. It doesn’t make you cool, it makes you stupid.

A hairdresser.
Piercings.
A tight bathing suit.
Bald spot and a pony tail at the same time.

How about... a girlfriend with her own brand of urinal stickers!

OK. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but yes, it still counts as a man bag. Also, the 9mm is not a proven bear-stopping round. If it's a REALLY big magazine, like a giant Glock or service issue Beretta it is almost OK.

Real men carry N-frame revolvers. If you are a hard ass and a dandy then a 1911 in a shoulder holster is a workable alternative. If you just hate too much gun (how is that possible) a snub-nose in the pocket or something is acceptable.

The 9mm in a fanny pack is WRONG. I would say GAY, but that is not permitted anymore.

Good for you for having a CCW and carrying, in all seriousness!!

11. Any beer that costs less than $20 a case. And no exception for the grand-slam 30-pack that crosses that price threshold.

I object. If Pabst Blue Ribbon was good enough for my dad and his dad, then it's good enough for me.

They've been around since the Vietnam war, and are used to improve one's aim. Many a VFW hall sported them.
