The Rules of Manhood

men at workI received this email from an anonymous source a while ago. It was simply titled The Rules of Manhood. It's not very P.C, but then again, neither is this blog. [Reminder to self - check to see if blog is PC] I only condone the funny statements. The ones that are not funny, well, they are just disgraceful, aren't they?

There are 27 rules. Are you left wondering why the list didn't make it to 30 (or more)? Censorship? Not one of the rules I'm afraid. Maybe you can supply the missing rules?

1. Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

2. It is ok for a man to cry under the following circumstances:
a. When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
b. The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse.
c. After wrecking your boss' car.
d. One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into "The Crying Game".
e. When she is using her teeth

3. Any man who brings a camera to a stag night may be legally killed and eaten by his mates.

4. Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

5. If you've known a bloke for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever, unless you actually marry her.


6. Moaning about the brand of free beer in a mate's fridge is forbidden. Complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

7. No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your mate's birthday is strictly optional.

8. On a road trip, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.

9. When stumbling upon other blokes watching a sporting event, you may ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

10. You may flatulate in front of a woman only after you have brought her to climax. If you trap her head under the covers for the purpose of flatulent entertainment, she's officially your girlfriend.

11. It is permissible to quaff a fruity alcopop drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach... and it's delivered by atopless supermodel...and it's free.

12. Only in situations of moral and/or physical peril are you allowed to kick another bloke in the nuts.

13. Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.

14. Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Ever. Issue closed.

15. If a man's fly is down, that's his problem, you didn't see anything.

16. Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports watchers.

17. A man in the company of a hot, suggestively dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.

18. Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both.

19. If you complement a bloke on his six-pack, you'd better be talking about his choice of beer.

20. Never join your girlfriend or wife in discussing a mate of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

21. Phrases that may not be uttered to another man whilelifting weights:
a. Yeah, Baby, Push it!
b. C'mon, give me one more! Harder!
c. Another set and we can hit the showers!

22. Never talk to a man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: Both urinating, both waiting in line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

23. Never allow a telephone conversation with a woman to go on for longer than you are able to have se.x with her. Keep a stopwatch by the phone. Hang up if necessary.

24. The morning after you and a girl who was formerly "just a friend" have carnal, drunken, wild monkey se.x, the fact that you're feeling weird and guilty is no reason not to nail her again before the discussion about what a big mistake it was.

25. It is acceptable for you to drive her car. It is not acceptable for her to drive yours.

26. Thou shalt not buy a car in the colours of brown, pink, lime, green, orange or sky blue.

27. The girl who replies to the question "What do you want for Christmas?" with "If you loved me, you'd know what I want!" gets a Playstation2. End of story.

Some people might wonder why I bother to post the odd joke on Sir Humphreys. As well as a bit of a chage of pace (even left wingers have a sense of humour, don't they?) I'm trying a new blogsport.

Every now and then AL lists some of the more bizarre google searches that have brought people in to our site.

Lets see who searches on "Angelina Jolie, two men, marry, and legally killed". That's just too weird.

Another three more years of blogging it seems. When I started in Feb/Mar I thought it was going to be a short-term thing. By the time we call it quits, Jordan Carter will be admitting he 'got it all wrong', Idiot will be a convert to Neo-Conism, and Tim Selwyn will be calling himself a racist.
