The conversations in my office already tend toward the uncommon. Sometimes, they have epic results. A few weeks ago, two co-workers and I were discussing who would make up the Board of Manliness. Someone has to have the final vote on what’s manly and what isn’t, right? I enthusiastically suggested Jason Statham, but the nays outvoted me.
Here is the final version of the Board:
Bruce Lee – would you mess with him? I wouldn’t.
Wilford Brimley – the grandfather influence for the group
Grizzly Adams – the man has a bear for a pet. ‘Nuff said.
The Dos Equis Man – the most interesting man in the world
John Wayne – for the classic western influence
Samuel L. Jackson – can you think of a manlier voice? Neither could we.
Chuck Norris – because he would hunt us down if we didn’t include him.
Stone Cold Steve Austin – for the brute force
The Fonz – because every board needs a leather jacket
The Old Spice Guy – because he’s on a horse (and is fond of monocles)
Theodore Roosevelt – for his intelligence and leadership
Johnny Cash – the manly artist
Sean Connery – for the classy influence
In the end, I think this is a pretty solid board (even without Jason Statham). What do you think? Is there anyone else you would add to the Board?
