It's great to be Macho!

Over on Sir Humphries , a grotty little Herbert (no blog or link itself, of course) has taken exception to a few comments on chickens.

Murry and myself and have been accused of spouting 'Macho BS'

Well, I beg your miniscule pardon! What the fuck is wrong with being Macho, anyway!

I 'yams what I 'yams!

We get all the fun toys- we get to drive bigger cars & trucks, tanks, jet aircraft, huge earthmovers and loud motorbikes.

There is no anguish over what to eat- cut the hooves & horns off & char the outside- all other food is 'side orders'

We can drink beer & red wine with whatever food we like.

Getting dressed is never a drama.

We know what we enjoy and aren't afraid to say so.

We know what we don't like and aren't afraid to say so.

We call a shovel a fucking spade and 'bullshit has more than two letters.

We know that women do some things better and men do other things better. Knowing that, we and our women work as a team to do what Man and Women have always done. Raise healthy, happy kids.

Sometimes that doesn't work out and we move on. We get over it- life goes on.

We are accused of being 'insensitive'- in our words- we don't buy into other people's bullshit!

We don't need support groups, therapists or rounds of applause for doing our jobs. We just get on with it.

Contrary to opinion,the real Macho Man does not beat women, children or gimps. That sort of thing is beneath us- and just wrong.

We say what we think, not what we think the other person wants to hear. You don't like it- tough.

We keep the world going. The world won't grind to a halt without boutiques, lattes, lemon-scented towels, colour co-ordintors, wedding planner or hair stylists.
Without plumbers, farmers, linesman, police, mechanics, road workers and all those other 'blue collars' workers, it will get uncomfortable real quick!

Former soldiers accused of eating chicken - Shock Horror! Clear cut case of being "mucho".

WTF is that tofu munchers malfunction?

How dare males be masculine in public!

But seriously I'm so going to have to have KFC for dinner.

Being macho is a natural and completely valid lifestyle choice, and I'm getting a little tired of the endless persecution from the judgemental pratts from the left.

I will not give up Chicken Kiev for any-one.

Chicken exists for only one purpose - to be eaten! Like steak, beef, ham, pork, lamb, mutton, veal, venison, etc. Meat is good.

Ok I say we have a bloggers chiken pot luck dinner in comemoration of this day.

You must be mellowing Oswald, a few months ago you'd have just told the bloke to fuck off ! ;)

PS - Roast pork on the spit is my fave. Does that make me a macho and insensitive to Muslims all at once ?
*wrings hands*

God made chicken to be eaten, not hugged! Bring on the secret herbs and spices!

Its not that you're macho,

you just come across as a wanker, thats all - sort of inbred and boorish, perhaps due to the miserable location you live in.

You are a country hick, rather than a country gent, Oswald.

And dont whinge about this being anonymous, I just be ashamed to admit I read your drivel, thats all.

Fuck off back to anonymouse land you whinging twat!
