Some years back, we were figuratively pistol-whipped by a hyper-radical/feminist/queer/artist chick. Shed just lectured at a local college. When we were introduced, she saw only stereotype -- white, male, not gay and determined on the spot that our troglodytic dick was the clearer thinking of our two heads. Her name escapes us, which is too bad, cause we recently discovered a neat little stuffer wed like to stick in her, er, stocking for Christmas: Maddoxs The Alphabet of Manliness (revised).
The handiwork of the notorious Salt Lake City-based Internet personality George Ouzounian (who uses the pen name Maddox), the original 2006 incarnation of the book made him a household name of sorts when it hit No. 2 on the New York Times Best Seller List. Brimming with hi-larious new-millennial he-man art, the book is divided into 26 easily digestible chapters detailing the male experience from A to Z.
A is for Ass-Kicking. B is for Boner. C is for Copping a Feel. Other amusing chapters include F (Female Wrestling), N (Chuck Norris), and R (Road Rage).
The revised edition includes addenda titled The Numbers of Manliness and one wed dearly love our art-chick pal to read while lashed to a boulder and with toothpicks propping up her eyelids: The Alphabet of Womanliness (as told by a man).
You can file that under T for Troglodytes Revenge.
