National Man Day – After more than a half year of hype, National Man Day is finally here. The brainchild of Joel Longanecker of Dayton, Ohio, this create-a-holiday can apparently be celebrated by men the world over, despite the “national” in the title. The celebration’s Facebook page says it better than I ever could: “I’m not asking you to throw some sissy party, or to go buy a new power tie because you’re a man. All I’m asking you to do is step up live this day like a man would. Blow something up, shoot some animal, punch your buddy in the face for no reason, be a good father, play football and literally knock someone’s head off … Do something manly.” Does that include sitting at home and blogging? Sigh. [via Facebook, image courtesy: wickedkoala]
