Funny Foto Friday: Manly? Not so Manly

This week on twitter, I've gone back and forth with a few twitter buddies about plucking eyebrows.  (Tricia from Endurance isn't only Physical, Gene from Accountability and Stephanie from her twitter page (who needs to start a blog).)  Turns out, if I don't wax my eyebrows about every 4 weeks, I end up looking like cousin IT from Adam's family Bert from Sesame street:
Roommates people.
They are roommates
I've been doing it for 15 years or so of my 29 years of life so I don't give it a second thought.  However, some people might think that this is a bit less than manly.  If they only knew about the other man-scaping that I do.

In the spirit of all things manly, I give you a simple quiz:  Manly?  Not so manly?

Bacon Candle?  Manly

Wearing a kick-ass coat.  Manly (And possibly a little bit Ke$ha if he is also using the whiskey as toothpaste)

THIS "Guy"....Not so manly.  (He has to be a man because the boobs aren't fuzzed out - right?)

Happy Friday!!

Also, it isn't too late to vote for me for the Top Endurance Blog of the Year! I'm actually in second place and have been bouncing between first and second.  Hooray! http://www.everymantri.com/everyman_triathlon/2011/01/and-the-2010-top-ten-best-endurance-sports-blogs-are.html

The bacon candle earns some manly point because you have to use a power drill.

Not roommates.
Bacon Candle and guy from Rocky Horror Picture Show - Not manly. Kind of dig the jacket though.
I just got my vote for you on.

Do you wax any other areas?

Maybe that could be your funny foto next week.

I'm on a horse.

Manscaping? Hmmmmmm. Love the bacon candle.

funderson said...

Wax away...heaven forbid you look like Bert.

Rose said...

HOLY SHIT I AM MAKING THAT CANDLE THE FIRST CHANCE I GET.

Also, having redonk shit embroidered on the back of a hoodie might be the raddest thing ever.

Jamoosh = MANLY!

Jamie said...

Talk about ambiguous pictures!
My hubby has a bacon air freshner (the kind that hangs from the rear view mirror in cars).

Lily on the Road said...

Damn the Snail, he stole (was first to reply) my idea of waxing with the bacon candle wax!

Thanks for the hard work put into the Freeze your thorns off virtual race...I'm definitely in for next year!!

Allie said...

Why does that "man" have Kate Gosselin hair? That is sooo 2009!

BrianFlash said...

Eyebrow waxing = not manly

However, (speaking from experience) there is nothing unmanly with having your hair stylist (wife) trim your eyebrows to keep from looking like Albert Einstein...

Nicole said...

That bacon candle is disturbing me. Disgusting!

Cynthia O'H said...

Done - voting not cooking bacon!

Crafty Jogger said...

Crafting that involves bacon??? My dreams have come true!

Laurie said...

Love the bacon candle. For Christmas my parents gave the guy I am married to a candle that smells like pot roast. I am not making this up but I wish I was.

Amanda@runninghood said...

oh gosh, this candle is just weird! So funny...I have to show this to my husband. The unibrow though...I am say wax. My husband has one of those nose trimmers that came with his electric shaver...the little kind with the battery...I've tried it a time or two...what about that? probably not so womanly? Woman don't trim their nose hairs or get nose hairs right? :)

gene @boutdrz said...

ah, Unibrow. "your stock is rising, Number 2." speaking of number 2.....
annnnd i'm back. thanks for the nod. yea, i used to have unibrow trbls. not any more. now i have a hard time keeping up with the hair that connects my head to my butt. losing it up top, i think it is just sliding backward.
ah, youth.
