Pink Saturday/ Something Pink for Men

I have posted so many of my pink possessions that I was running out of ideas for things to post for Pink Saturday.

At first I thought of posting some pink rooms. Then I thought, ho hum, who hasn't posted pink rooms? I did find some pretty ones, but thought I should offer up something a little more unique. I giggled to myself and typed in "men in pink" into Google. Well, have you ever typed in something, and it shows several lines beneath with other search suggestions?

Here is what Google came up with - "men in pink bras." Oh this was going to be good!

I thought of the Seinfeld episode where George got his father a bra for men. They called it the "bro" and the "mansierre."

If you go to Urban Dictionary, you can find the definition for the "Manzeer: A word describing a bra designed for men that possess droppy, saggy, or otherwise oversized pectoral fat. Such men could be said to have man cans, man boobs, man t**ties, moobs."

Then they put the word into a sentence: "If Jack's man cans get any bigger, he is going to need a manzeer to keep from getting black eyes!"

My own favorite word for men's oversized fleshy pectorals is "he-hooters."

In Japan, they now have the mansierre for sale! They even make one in pink!

You thought I was kidding, didn't you? Nope! I guess they are selling rather well.

Does this mean they are wearing them on the street?

Apparently so.

My ex was rather big when he was married to me. I estimate that he would have needed a B-C cup in a mansierre. I imagine he might have looked something like this wearing one!

I don't understand how the craze is catching on. I mean, seriously, do you like having to wear a bra? As one young lady says, "Bra's must be made by men, because there is no way a woman would have chosen such an uncomfortable idea for women for all eternity." I must confess though, I would rather be wearing an uncomfortable bra than have the girls hanging down past my belly button.

It must be the novelty of it all. After all, men have the choice of taking it off at any time!

Okay, I'm not judging here, and not hating, but I am so glad this man (and yes it is a man) is not my neighbor. I hope he has a really high fence.

Some of the comments that came with this pic that I found on Flickr made reference to his sexiness. I threw up in my mouth a little.

Come to think of it, he does have kind of nice legs though.

I was over at Miss Justine's and glanced over and saw the "bro/mansierre." on her blog roll. I had to come over to see what the post could be about. Pink Saturday was never so hilariously entertaining! I'm gonna take a peek at your past posts.
Come for a visit..
Sweet Wishes,

Hi Kady!

SCARY! Bras on men? Who knew?? I must live a sheltered life, I didn't know they even made bras for men! What's the fashion industry coming too? LOL Cute post Kady!

I'm catching up today and saw your new place, really nice (well except that bathrm wallpaper! What were they thinking??) Will the landlord allow you to change the chandelier to upgrade it? If not maybe you could change the glass shades out (store the current ones) and make a "cozy" out of fabric to cover the center of the chandy. Fabric to compliment the plaid wallpaper.
I saw on a decorating show years ago where they couldn't paint the cabinets so they used that foam core board and covered it with fabric and used the sticky velco tabs to attach it to the cabinet doors. The also made some the same way that they did decorative painting on. It was FABULOUS!! You could change the whole feel of the room, just make it compliment the wallpaper. I'm glad you found a place that will work for you, that's wonderful!
The photo of you is great! Your are so beautiful and the new you is so vibrant and healthy!!
Many blessings to you girl!!
Big hugs, Sherry
