7 quotes about things real men don’t do…


FAMOUS ORIGINAL SOURCE:

Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche
       Bruce Feirstein
       Writer and columnist for the New York Observer
       Title of his 1983 book, based on a humorous piece he wrote for Playboy magazine in 1982.


THE BEVERAGE VERSION:

“Real men don’t put water in their whiskey.”
       David Ware
       Owner of the Stockman Bar and Steakhouse 
       The Montana Billings Gazette, April 19, 2010


THE BELUSHI VERSION:

Real Men Don’t Apologize

THE STAR TREK VARIATION:

“REAL MEN DON’T SET FOR STUN”
       T-Shirt slogan

THE PJs VARIATION:

“Real men don’t wear pajamas…Real men wear underwear. If they wear anything else to bed, it’s a Pittsburgh Steelers T-shirt. And a smile.”
       Kevin Cowherd
       In his book Last Call at the 7-Eleven (1995)


THE COUNTRY BOYS VERSION:

“Real men don’t drink latte. They drink beer, smoke Marlboros, and ride their SUVs through mud and up mountains, to the acclaim of women and the envy of other men. Real men are rural men: this cultural idea wields not only enormous political power but enormous economic power.”

       Edited by Michael Bell and Margaret Finney


THE IDEAL VERSION:

“Real men don’t beat women. Real men don’t rape. Real men, in short, don’t worry about whether they’re real men.”

       In his book Eve's Seed (2001)
       (At left, the cover of Real Men magazine, Jan. 1957, from www.MensPulpMags.com)
