Oklahoma City, OK, United States (4E) Oklahoma City has been dubbed Americas Manliest City in the fourth annual Combos Americas Manliest Cities list.
Conducted by New Jersey-based Mars Chocolate, in conjunction with research expert Bert Sperling, the list ranks the 50 largest U.S. metropolitan areas using a scale that takes into account the number of home improvement stores, steak houses and manly occupations per capita.
Cities stood to lose points if they had too many girly or feminine factors, such as a high number of nail salons or high-end retail boutiques.
Topping the list as Americas Manliest City is Oklahoma City. Columbia, S.C. was ranked second and Memphis landed at No.3.
Nashville, Tenn., ranked first last year, dropped to fourth. Rounding out the top five was Birmingham. Ala.
Ranked No. 50, making it the least manly state in the study, was San Diego.
Expect a sudden influx of gays looking for Manly Men...
Seems to me that there were more single women than single men there also.
I liked Oklahoma City. It was square. My family doesn’t care about steak houses, because we cook steaks at home, but OKC also has the National Western Heritage Center (the “Cowbow Hall of Fame,” as was) and the 45th Infantry Museum. Those are very manly attractions. And in Norman, there’s the University of Oklahoma, a football-y place, and the Natural History Museum, with giant dinosaurs for mini-men.
I wouldn’t mind going back there, if the stars aligned aright.
What a bizarre attitude.
What's my wife supposed to do - learn auto repair or carpentry?
Wouldn't a city be better if it has both "manly" and "girly" things to do?
Would you want to live in a city with no women?
Stupid. Manly men haves wives, and wives need nail salons and Macy's. Trust me on this.
Oklahoma is know as the belt buckle of the Bible Belt. Seems like manliness and Godliness just kinda go together.
Hey! You can’t forget about Allana! All them guys in their Aliens Helmets, graphite bikes and prissy pants bicycling in the middle of traffic, can you?
Been there a few times...good people.
Whatever city Mountn Man is in at the time is the manliest city.
That that sentence again. They said ‘too many “girly” or feminine factors’.
I wonder if Tampa is mentioned.
Um. Actually I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.
This woman can’t afford Macy’s.
Oh,well. They cater to the queers,anyway.
Lets say nail salons average 10 customers per day each. There are 15 nail salons. 100 women get their nails done.
Step adside, OK City, and make way for your little brother!
“I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee”
Believe it or not, this was a Canadian redneck hippy anthem in 1970 bars!
Isn’t Tampa considered the strip club capital of the US?
>>What’s my wife supposed to do - learn auto repair or carpentry?
Are you saying that she can’t? She could clean fish, landscape your yard, spend time at the pistol range...
For most people, it is unnecessary for the article and the thread, but for you: </SARC>
That’s okay....not everyone is expected to comprehend a reply that says “been there ......good people” to an article that notes the manliness of Oklahoma City. Albeit, a complement on the people Oklahoma City, I guess I should have said “I seen an Oklahoma Citian eat a barr” or something... it was nothing more than a complement.
>> 100 women get their nails done.
It isn’t the number of women in the nail salon that deducts manliness points. It is the number of men getting their nails done in salons that deducts points.

“Whatever city Mountn Man is in at the time is the manliest city.”
San Fran in Castro ? Bezerklee? Ithaca (The city of Evil?)
Now that I think about it, You’d be overkill. One only need add a young boy to up their manliness quotient...but no one in their right mind would put a young boy there without an armed guard, 2 pit bulls and a rack of Anti-Pedobear weaponry ;)
My apologies. I thought you were responding to my comment about Oklahoma City, but it was about Allan and its bicycle riders....my bad.
I was quipping about how manly these bicyclists seem in their garb in juxtaposition to how I have seen most Oklahoma City men in the past.
That alone makes my head hurt.
Buckaroo Banzai ~ It drives lie a truck.
Black Lectroid ~ Good. What is a truck?
Sorry...that was supposed to be Allana...short for Atlanta....I’m born and bred here...you often hear newcomer ATLANTANs say “Allana”...I guess that’s an inside ‘tell’ for us real Atlanta/Georgia denizens....
The bicyclist, helmet, and fancy pants thing is a sore point for some of us in the mountains, and even it the metro area. They go out on them in multiples and present a driving hazard in my opinion....but there are two sides to the argument I guess that I’ll leave for another day....
See the second item in my profile page...
LOL. I think so,but I don’t get down there very much.
I only go when there’s a Lightning game or when then the team has a fan fest going on. I have autographs out the wazoo and over 40 pucks,14 of which are signed.
I love the Lightning. I’m going into withdrawals now that hockey season is over.
The Tampa Bay Times Forum isn’t in the best part of town and I’ll haul ass to my car.
Tampa isn’t totally bad,though. It’s not like Detroit. (Thank goodness)
You gotta be manly if you are living in Tornado Alley!

I’ve been through Atlanta;there are some CRAZY drivers in that city.
Yes. This would be why San Diego is womanly. San Diego women like to beautiful, and that means nails, skin care, etc. Believe me, growing up as a girl in San Diego, it was really hard to keep up with all the slim, tanned, manicured girls, when I was fair-skinned, struggling with weight, and short-nailed.
I should have been from Portland. I would have looked great.
LOL @ San Francisco ranking 49th. That city should be OFF the map when it comes to manliness.
I’m really shocked this wasn’t San Francisco in a rout
Go OKC Thunder....
“We know better, don’t we, Mayonnaise?”
OK, now what’s the girliest city?
so what is a mountn man doing in flat ill noise? (but you helped chicago make the list)

Charlotte #10? No way!

The topic is manliness, not adolescence.
