The Manly Blogger Guy Award

It had to happen sooner or later. I am the proud recipient of a blog award. David C. of Lugubrious Drollery and The Marx Brothers Blog has presented me with The Manly Blogger Guy Award. According to David , The qualifications for the award are as follows:

1. The blog receiving the award must demonstrate masculine qualities such as sloth, boorishness, urinary hesitancy, or flatulence. In the interest of equal opportunity, these criteria do not entirely exclude female nominees.

2. No blog which plays background music such as "Somewhere My Love" or "My Heart Will Go On" is eligible.

3. The award should be passed on to as many other blogs as possible, but watching televised sports or taking a nap should take precedence over passing out awards.

I'm deeply touched - in a manly way.

David has asked that I pass the award on to deserving bloggers in my circle. After careful deliberation, I am forwarding the award to the following manly blogger guys:

Rick Rivers of Chicanizmo.
Rick came up in one of the roughest barrios in Northern California and went on to become a college professor. What's more macho than a smart tough guy?

Bullshee of A Monk in Hot Water
Pull up his blog and the first thing you'll see is beer, ice cold beer. Manly, very manly.

Guely of Guelyland
Guely has on more than one occasion expressed an appreciacion for the everlasting coolness of Steve McQueen. Need I say more?

Bryan Frank of BeFrank
Bear with me - I know a little something about this guy. Bryan and I did stand up comedy in the eighties. I once saw him give another comedian the scary stink eye after the guy stole one of his jokes. Bryan has read more Robert B. Parker, Joseph Wambaugh and Charles Bukowski than any blogger I know. He lugs a hundred pound video camera around the mean streets of L.A.. And what's more, I know for a fact the man can still crank a one armed Rocky Balboa style push up. Macho, muy macho.

Congratulations, men.

As per Richard C., feel free to pass the award along to deserving manly guys.

Wow, Bill I was deeply touched by considering me to further bestow this Manly Guy Award to! I totally understand why you would get it as Machismo just reeks in your entries.

In fact, I was so touched I started to cry but then recalled the old Mexican addage: "Los hombres no lloran" (men do not cry). The following may further qualify me. In a recent poem I wrote: "I am un Macho, his tanates swinging like pendulums..." (something like that.)

When I start to cry I think about football.
You've got to post some of this swinging tantes poetry!

You got that right.
Ugly, strong and formal? I didn't have any trouble with the swinging tantes, but I'm not sure on the translation of Feo, Fuerte y formal...

The award is well deserved. I'm somehow picturing you in sideburns and a rhinestone jump suit..

Hai - Karate!!!
OH MY GOSH... this one brought back so many memories..
We used to alternate between Hai-Karate and Old Spice with my dad.. That is of course until Avon came up with cologne in car shaped bottles..
What can I say... my family always was a bit hitone...
Thanks for the flashback.
