Inside Pocket

To me, the inside pocket was one of the most clever inventions.  I used it to hide gum and lint covered gum.  But I am sure that it had darker beginnings.

Guy with weapons in his inside pocket: Go ahead.  Search me.  I am innocent I tell you. (A wry smile fills his face)
Guy looking for weapons: I don’t understand…(patting down).  I know I saw you with at least 3 swords not two shakes ago.
Guy with weapons: I think you have the wrong guy.  (Another wry smile fills his face)
Guy looking for weapons: No!  The guy I saw distinctly had a large mole hanging on his left eyelid, preventing him from blinking properly.
Guy with weapons: Well, it is obviously not me.  You may have noticed that I have this patch over my left eye (points to eye).  I wear it because I am blind in that eye. (Wry smile developing)
Guy looking for weapons: Hmmm.  I guess you are right.  I apologize for disrupting your visit to the castle good sir.  I hope you are fortunate enough to see the king today.  He is due to visit this very court any minute now.
Guy with weapons: Thanks for the tip.  (Yet another wry smile fills his face)

Mancode #95 – Speedos

As a man, I probably shouldn’t be telling you our secret codes for fear of being kicked out — kicked out of the Man Club.

Scenario: Your 2nd cousin Nancy gives you the gift of the Speedo believing that manly men wear them.  You give a hesitant grin and thank her for the thought and the confidence.

Mancode#95: You were right to be hesitant.   The Speedo does not meet Mancode requirements — that all shorts, pants and any other leg coverings must have pockets.  That is why some men watch pro wrestling.  It is not that they enjoy the sport, they just want to see what these big dudes are going to do with their hands.  Why do you think pro wrestlers gesture so much and with such conviction?  Simple.  No pockets.  If their little trunks had pockets, pro wrestling would actually be a manlier sport.
