Punch my Mancard!

Will you punch my Mancard?
  • Will you punch my Mancard?
I squealed yesterday when, at the corner of State and Randolph, a beefy gentleman with a sharp haircut handed unto me a small glossy card. A furniture sale? No! It was the Mancard, and it declared me an Official Member Since Birth, but with a caveat: Don't Get It Revoked! It was not clear if Mancards were being handed out to just any old Joe, or only to the particularly fey ones.

I also wondered: How does one get one's Mancard revoked? Luckily it's explained in the small print:

Here's your man card. Use it carefully. Do anything girly, and you'll get it punched. Get it punched four times, and it's revoked! So the question is, "What does it take to be a real man?"

What indeed!

Micah 6:8 says, "He hath showed thee O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

And so forth. I don't feel that I got a particularly clear explanation about this man business, but those with questions are encouraged to call "Dr. Dave" at 815-997-7663, or check him out (I mean, check him out) at truthreallymatters.com.
