So says Brant von Hoffman, co-author of Bigger Damner Book Of Sheer Manliness (QNY), a second edition of pastimes and passions that define manliness, including a butt-busting chili recipe and a list of 200 names for a penis.
Von Hoffman argues that its okay to be a dude and indulge in silliness.
He, for instance, has his own He-Man Woman-Haters Club in his garage where he drinks beer and rigs crazy devices like fireworks and exploding rockets.
The coolest part is, his girlfriend lets him.
Von Hoffman gifts his gal with a single red rose every Friday, which sets him free and keeps him out of trouble.
Besides playing with fire, other manly things include camping and any film starring Clint Eastwood, especially Unforgiven.
Von Hoffman says true manliness, however, comes from being a good guy who stands up for others and does the right thing.
