Some Male Life Conventions

Firstly, can I just say that yes, I do realise this has been covered a billion times over the internet. But I want to make my own list so 😛
Here I’m going to list a select few conventions (rules, if you will) of male life. They are:

  • Phone conversations: If talking to another guy, they should be used only to impart information, and should last less than two minutes. It is acceptable to talk for longer about other stuff if talking to a female or family member.
  • Urinals: You must always have a one urinal gap in between each man. If there are no available gaps, and you’re desperate, then it is acceptable to go next to someone providing you look at the wall in front of you and nowhere else.
  • Emotions: Emotions cannot be displayed at any time, except when hit in the balls or drunk, although in both instances your friends hold the right to laugh at you for it for the rest of their lives.
  • Hugs: Only ultra-cool guys can give out hugs, and such hugs can be accepted with visible enthusiasm. If hugged by an uncool person you are required to show severe discomfort afterwards.
  • Music: High School Musical et al is expressly forbidden, upon pain of being called ‘gay’. This also goes for most mainstream, bland pop.

    Guys must be the most ridiculous creature on earth. Like a xbox game with masculinity-points and when you lose all of them, you’re gay. xD

    I agree with the comment above!

    And this is the greatest list EVER. Even better than all the lists I ever wrote. You practically summarized all there is about guys into one post — we now know why God created men first.

    HA HA HA HA! 😀

    Loved the list! You know your “boy culture”!

    Incidentally, I just finished reading an interesting book about how boys grow up and function in “boy culture”. It’s written for teachers (like me), but someone out there in cyberspace might also find it interesting. It’s called THE WONDER OF BOYS by Michael Gurian. Check it out at your library, if you’re curious.
