The Ultimate American Road Trip
Summer’s coming on, the ideal season for a road trip—which Jack Kerouac did not invent, by the way. Pausanias, Genghis Khan, and the Buddhist monk Xuanzang all have him beat. He wasn’t even the first American to embark on a road trip—that distinction jointly goes to Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, leaders of the Corps of Discovery (better known as the Lewis and Clark Expedition), which started up the Missouri River on this date 209 years ago.
A Drink Men Should Know About
As an enthusiast of whiskey since my early years, it’s my pleasure to watch the world celebrate my favorite poison in the spotlight of mass popularity. But it’s important to remember that a dignified man’s drink should always be simple, bold, and romantic. Much like The Barrel Aged Manhattan.
Joking Around with Elle Sunkara
As an airplane is about to crash, a female passenger jumps up frantically and announces, “If I’m going to die, I want to die feeling like a woman.”
She removes all her clothing and asks, “Is there someone on this plane who is man enough to make me feel like a woman?”
A man stands up, removes his shirt and says, “Here, iron this!”.

The Short Sleeve Dress Shirt
In the realm of men’s fashion, there is one hard and fast rule: Never, and we mean NEVER, wear a men’s short sleeve dress shirt to the office. Unless of course your job entails changing oil, wearing a name tag, or asking customers if they want fries with that.

Read It Quick Before You See the Movie
Rare is the film that’s better than the book it’s based on. I can think of only two: Doctor Zhivago and The Godfather. The latest film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, comes out this Friday, and the trailer for it bodes ill: pretty flashy-looking and over-the-top. Of course, subtlety is not the strong suit of the director of Moulin Rouge, but still. If you plan on seeing it, at least read the damn book first: it’s the mythical Great American Novel, for more reasons than one.
Joking Around with Natalie Piscopo
Ok gentlemen, here I go: A man is driving down the road and sees a nun hitchhiking next to a broken down car. He picks the nun up and begins driving down the road to the nearest service station. After driving a bit the man begins to shake nervously. The nun asks, “What’s wrong?” The man says, “I grew up in catholic school and have always had a fantasy about having sex with a nun.” The nun says, “You are only human and we all have these feelings.” The nun continues to say how she too has these desires. The nun agrees to have sex on three conditions: 1) That the man is not married; 2) has no children; 3) And he must do her in the back door because she is saving herself for God. He agrees and they do it. After having sex they continue driving down the road and the man begins to shake again and confesses that he is married and has kids. The nun says, “That’s ok, my name is Kevin and I am on my way to a Halloween Party.”Check out Natalie Piscopo original interview and pictorial here.
