There are lots of things fathers teach their sons. Some bad things, but mostly things that boys need to know to be successful among other boys or in the world. It can be something simple like how to skip a stone across water or something socially important like which urinal to pick in a public

Well, so comes to an end “Women are Crazy and Men are Stupid” week at Male Pattern Madness. As many of you know Joe A and I have known each other for a long time and I happen to remember where his mantra started. Many years ago, a group of us kids from high school

In college, one of my suite mates took the “How well do you know women” quiz in that month’s addition of Playboy magazine. Thinking he did better than any of the rest could do, especially me, the Baptist, he made all of us take the quiz. I blew everybody away. Next to the number I

Growing up, my father was pretty handy around the house. He could fix all types of things, plumbing, electrical, carpentry. My mother would always force me to go hang out with him and “learn something.” Despite my best efforts, I actually did learn some things. In fact enough things, that I’m supremely confident at taking

I found this blog post some time ago, but it still makes me laugh. It’s from a humor blogger David Thorne. His premise is usually a series of back and forth emails where he’s quite an ass, but in a funny clever way. Here’s the link.

I was walking through an upscale strip mall, the kind that they put nice signs and awnings on and therefore think you are willing to spend more money at. (I hate to break it to you designers, there’s no such thing as a nice strip mall.) Well, anyway, as I was walking, I noticed a
