BS: Manly Bragging. More power. Car? Bike? T

What do you, the manly man, brag about ? Something that, as soon as you get it or build it, you invite your buddies over, just to show it off. That sup'ed up vintage muscle car ? That new ATV with the biggest most aggresive mud-boggin tires that throw mud in the faces of those you pass with ease ? That bass boat that will get you to the best fishin spots before daylight even when you leave the dock after dawn ?

Fer me, it's my Gerber. Man, she's seventeen and a half inches at the rim - no more squattin. Elongated bowl - no more cold d*** surprise. Three and a half gallons of super-swirlin per flush - no more double flushin. And the water surface is as big as a lake - no more wipin up the missin-pissin with toilet paper; you can hit this even when your more than half asleep. It's a manly toilet. C'mon over and try it. It's a beauty, eh.

No no. Material things. Not those things. I'm Irish. No bragging rights there.

I want to install a urinal in our main washroom, that would give me something to brag about ... unfortuantely my wife objects to it.

This seems to be a male thing and can be seen even in very young boys. My four year old grandson is always ready to show off his latest Power Ranger toys to his friends and to boast of their particular features. When he had a new bike for Christmas it was inspected by his schoolfriends in detail and the fact that it had Power Ranger's transfers not common in the UK was remarked upon.

Recently Kendall and I visited a friend in the UK and I watched our friend do show and tell with his various guitars with Kendall for most of the time we were there. It cracked me up, as it was just the same as with the little boys, just with more expensive toys.

Doesn't seem to happen so much with females.

As the saying goes, "He who dies with the most toys, wins." It's a male thing. Childish? Yeah. I suppose. But fun.

I bought a roto-tiller. I hate to admit that after using it, I would rather pay someone else to till my garden.

Yeah. Them suckers look great on the TV commercials don't they? Only problem is, if all you had to till was nice soft garden soil like in the commercials, you wouldn't need one. When you try to till glacial till with one, it's a fight to the death. Wear a cup if there's any amount of stones in the till.

I got more books than you do. And I can type faster, too. And I'll just betcha my wife's got more fabric that you do!

(Ladies -- "She who dies with the most fabric wins" is a common slogan among quilters.)

If I was a guy, and if I had a Bobcat All-Wheel Steel Loader, I would brag about that.

I have more things that plug in and specifically, more lamps in MY house than any of the rest of you, I'll bet! Nyah, nyah! If turned them all on at once, either my house would go up in smoke, or the Eastern Seaboard would black out.

Looks like you got the Mount Vernon elongated model, gnu. What color did you get, and can you store your live bait in it?

White is the only colour a toilet should ever be. I could store bait in it, but then I'd have to use the toilet in the washroom in the basement and it's just a regular crappy little toilet. I could change out the one in the basement too, but, with little downpipe, I'd be worried about getting bidet'd.

Rap - don't bet on it..... and I'm not even a quilter!

That's a big white beauty, but why isn't it red like all the others I've seen?

Of course, we could start comparing sewing machines... mine does 20 different stitches, has integral light and reverse gear..... and it came with its own screwdriver!

Now, can your machine do a triple denim fold cuff? If so, which make and model, because the one I bought for my Ex and couldn't, or so she said. I paid over $300 for that machine and she lent it to her sister... and it never came back. Apparently, it had a screwdriver too, and I got it.

NO! You can't. I am going to do ten seconds of typing starting now:
