A Man’s Work

Posted by on June 4, 2012

It is one of my personal credos to never mock the way another man feeds his family. Some of this viewpoint comes from my own line of work (I essentially talk and do card tricks for a living) and some of this comes from having had a father who lived through the Great Depression and knew what a man has to do to put food on the table in hard times.

But then I saw this guy. He’s making his scratch sitting in a chair and saying things like, “your butt isn’t a billboard”. (For the record, I saw this site linked on a friend’s Facebook page and did not find it myself while looking for the appropriate take on harem pants. I already have that. Thank you, Barbara Eden.)

It’s not WHAT he says that troubles me. (“Don’t make your butt a billboard” is good advice.)

It’s that is being said at all …
… by a guy
… in public
… for a check.

The guy holds a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University and studied neurobiology and psychology as an undergradute student at the University of Chicago, yet his gig is this?

Maybe I’m jealous.

Keep it Old School, my friend

The Old Man
