Here at Urbasm we consider ourselves to be manly men.
How do we know? Well, we’re card carrying members.
It shouldn’t surprise you to find that being a man involves performing a card full of manly tasks, such as leading a group of men into battle, wrestling bears, or changing your name to sound more like an action hero. And if you think all that sounds about right… well, then you’re way less manly than you thought.
A man isn’t fueled by alcohol, courage, spilled blood or a really cool name – although it doesn’t hurt on occasion. A man is unleashed by his understanding of who he is, who he wants to be and what it will take to get him there.
In other words, the first step is to admit that you’re probably a girly man. The second step is to watch a couple Chuck Norris films while waiting for your beard to sprout and hopefully flourish. Note: If you fail step 2, please return to step 1 and remain there indefinitely.
The last step is to see if you have what it takes to fill out the below man card.
While you might not complete all the tasks, how many you finish and the ones you complete could say a fair bit about you.
But don’t go getting the wrong idea. A man card is certainly an achievement, but not a lifetime membership. Your card can be revoked at any time for the following reasons:
- Your max bench press is less than the weight of your date/girlfriend.
- Overextending your stay in the friend zone.
- Ordering any drink that comes with an umbrella.
- You go to a movie by yourself… and nobody dies in it.
- Letting another man carry your groceries.
- Buying a minivan
- Breaking up with a girl through a text message.
- Sitting in any crowded room… while a beautiful woman is standing.
You were born an infant, grew into a boy and eventually blossomed into a legal adult. For some ‘men’ (and I use this term loosely) this is enough.
For others, it is only the beginning. Which kind of man are you?
