Men's Vogue???


#1

There I am, getting my morning cup of coffee and cruising the magazine rack when I finally arrive to the section I was looking for... and nestled comfortably inbetween FHM, Maxim, Men's Health, and Low Rider I see something that just doesn't fit. I see the pearly white smile of Tiger Woods staring back at me with the letters "MEN'S VOGUE" printed above his shiney head.

sigh

Now while I am a huge advocate of not judging a book by its' cover, I opted to leave this one alone, and back away slowly. Thoughts came streaming into my head about the articles of this "men's" magazine, and what they may be about...

"Take our dating quiz..."

"How to be a better metro-sexual?"

"Are you too manly?"

"Nude Brad Pitt photos inside!"

While half of me wanted to yank the Bic our of my pocket and light the entire rack on fire, I seemingly controlled my anger and reminded myself that I had not yet recieved my coffee and maybe I was just seeing things.

Walking away I glanced back and realized that the magazine is actually real. Tiger's scantily clad outfit and ridiculous little smirk made me want to puke.

Someone please tell me this is an isolated test case and there were scientists behind a glass window somewhere monitoring my reactions in hope of finding a cure for cancer or something... Someone?

I'll see it when I believe it.


#3

pffft.... What the hell do you think FHM and Maxim are???? They are the male versions of Vogue and Cosmo.


#4

I also spied this magazine yesterday in the grocery store.....I guess it's not an isolated case.


#5

This is true. They definitely are. But they feature hot chicks and the articles are funnier and more self-deprecating. So, they are good.


#6

You sir, deserve to be punched in the face. That's like saying 'Raging Bull' is the male version of 'Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood'.


#7

Yes I saw it too. They also have a copy of VOUGE Knitting (No Shit).


#8

FHM and Maxim are for pussies that are too chicken shit to buy real men's magazines...like Hustler.


#9

Oh yeah. Nothings more manly then a bunch guys standing around reading hustler and masterbating together. Real manly.

Is it more manly buying it at the newstand, or having the mailman deliver it, for all your friends to see sticking out of your mailbox?
