Manly Blogging Award

I just want to thank my wife, Miss Sniz, for giving me this very special blogging award:

She didn't think that I'd actually post it on my blog!!! Nothing says, "Manly Man" like two kittens cuddling in a field of warm green grass. Thanks, sweets. In order to MAN-IT-UP a few notches, I've decided to add a few things via the magic of Photoshop. These are just a few attempts. If you have better ideas, please let me know.

1. BEER - There's just something manly about a big bottle of Budweiser and these kitties are enjoying The High Life (wait, that's Miller--oh well).

- Bowling is also a very manly activity. Plus, Albert Einstein and Stephan Hawking proved that beer and bowling are scientifically linked. You can look it up online.

- Now here's a masculine activity--staring at power tools. Besides the hammer (nature's purest tool) the chainsaw is the perfect solution to just about any household or yard related problem. You can't see their faces, but you know they're lovin' this 20" Craftsman. Oh, and notice how even the brand Craftsman has the word MAN in it. Perfect!

- This is where it all comes together. For this image I removed the kitties from their usual setting and brought them to a place where guys can be guys--the gridiron (i.e. football field). What's better than watching the game with your friends on tv? Being at the game! What's better than just being at the game? Being on the sidelines to see the action up close? What's better than being on the sidelines? Being on the field of play. However, these little guys might be just a little too close. More than likely, they're going to get run over by Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints and the pursuing Eagles defender. Plus, if Reggie Bush's touchdown counts, they may may have to dodge a spiked ball. LOOK OUT, KITTIES!!!!

A FEW OTHER NOTES: I changed the text to a font called "Bloody" and made it red. I also decided that this picture should be sponsored by Nike. Finally, some of you may object to the manliness of one kitty putting his arm around the other. Normally, guys don't do that. But when the setting is a football game, that changes everything.

Perfect! I love the bloody red font.
By the way, did you know that your security certificate is expired??? I have to click yes about eight times to view your blog. weird. I wasn't aware that blogs had them.

Woo Hoo! First to comment on one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile. All four of my kids crowed around me to see the 'cute kitten' photo...and then we just laughed and laughed at the additions. The last photo is the best...You should win an award for THAT!

Thanks for the laugh!
p.s. Looking forward to new posts under the labels beer, chainsaws and kittens.

Sniz said...

Oh my goodness, this is one of the best posts EVER! I laughed so hard all the way through and what I really want to know is if you're actually going to put any of those images on your sidebar? It's not nice to tease, you know, and you DID imply you accepted the award!

You are a stud.

Just an FYI: If you've ever thought about combining the beer, the bowling, and the chainsaws... Don't. Trust me. I learned the hard way.

This has been a very educational post, I must say! I had no idea what a Gridiron actually was. I knew it couldn't be an iron with grids, because that would just ruin the whole point of ironing!

Wani said...

wow... do you really need to "man it up"... aren't you secure enough in your manhood that you can accept a gift from your wife for what it is without having to change it? huh, huh? sigh...

I'm long as there's beer, bowling balls, chain saws and football involved.
