4. LOL ...
More of a Ben Davis, but more testosterone, and not the Floyd Landis type.

3. Farting, scratching, belching, spitting, drinking beer, watching WWF.
Later I might put on some boxers and drive down to ACE.

6. Just so you guys know, the correct answer is
"I'm taking pictures of myself being all manly to post in the lounge, so that the ladies may look at them."

Thank you for your cooperation.

7. In my house, we don't have that woman-hating talk.
We like to acknoledge ethnic roots at Chez Dora.

What you call a "wifebeater," my husband calls a "guinea."

9. Please tell me there aren't black hairs springing from yr shoulders
Our gym doesn't allow anything sleeveless. In a way, I'm kind of glad.

24. It's related to the movie..

... "A Streetcar Named Desire" and Brando's uniform throughout.

It's funny, because I'm wearing one today and I rarely do :)

19. crap. I just learned that one of my neighbors beat his wife and kids. This
joke thread is really rubbing me the wrong way today. Do we really need to joke about this?

20. I don't think
anyone was actually joking about it. While it may be a crude term, those sleeveless fitted tanks have been called "wife-beaters" for a while. I am not saying it is a good term to use, but I don't think anyone thinks actually beating anyone's wife is funny!

23. Getting ready to go to the complex gym.
Gonna do some bicep and forearm curls, then go for a swim. Wish that swim could be in the Intercoastal Waterway, but I've got surgery tomorrow. Gonna have to stick to the pool. :mad:

25. I think I'll go out for a drive and not ask for directions.
Then I'll smoke a cigar while drinking some bourbon.
I'd watch a ballgame but the Dbacks are off today.


Wait?! I'm female... Can I be 'manly'? :shrug:
