Beware the dreaded man-boobies!

July 14th, 2004 (05:53 pm)

On his weblog, Dave Barry ponders the imponderable:

Bonus points to anyone who can explain why a man can't be "sexy" and also smile. Or at least not look like he's having intestinal difficulties.

Examples here.

I am most amused by Mark C., who appears to be flashing his man-boobies in the hope that someone will give him beads. Oh, and there's an Asian guy named Long.

Most of them are pretty ick to me. Of the ones not wearing shirts Brian N is one of the few who seem kinda cool.

I guess Cody, Zack H. and Joey are okay. I suppose Sean P is the only one I'd really call sexy.

dc: crackshot and connor

They're all to a pretty specific type (super buff, overly tanned, shiny) and it's not doing much for me, either. I like well defined muscles as much as the next girl, but I'd have to say the best-looking guy on the page, IMHO, is Stu, 'cause I don't feel like I would poke an eye out on his hipbone! Most of these guys look like they modeled for the first Nightwing miniseries. ^_^

nightwing: rocking the mullet

Comic book character-- supposed to be an acrobat and built like one, right? In his first solo miniseries the artists drew him *way* too bulky. *checks page* More like a Charlie D. than a Shaun. ^_^

Supposedly it's aimed at both. I think it's a little soft-sell for the gay male set. Of course, given the reaction of the women I know, maybe gay guys are the only ones who'd bother.

(I feel bad for Nick. He's flexing and all, but he looks really sad to be there.)

I bet that both Mark C and Cory G can fill an A cup.
