Beware that Blue Cock!

This is the year 2020. (No shit, Sherlock!) We live in an era where men are ashamed to be men  men who have been brainwashed into believing they are the scum of the earth, the oppressor of women, the root of all evil. I say, no more of this nonsense. I say, cut that crap. It's time for the return of the eighties' guy. Beware the blue cock. He's coming back to town to show those sissies how to act like men again.

Okay, maybe that was bit much... but there's a grain of truth in what I just said. Global society is going overboard with this PC fetishism. I've been saying this literally for years and last year even Gillette (the best a man can get) got infected with the virus when they portrayed men as the predators they are, who are obviously up to no good and need to be taught a valuable life lesson. Toxic masculinity is supposedly all around. Well, in my book the one thing that's been around these past couple of years is toxic bullshit.

No, I won't pardon my French or my Swedish for that matter. I'm not ashamed to be a man. Call me old-fashioned but I'm proud to turn 50 in June and still flex my fairly impressive muscles. I'm not a metrosexual. I build stuff and repair stuff and, yes, I teach. My voice doesn't go up when I talk to the ladies (so as to sound less intimidating). Dear Lord, aren't psychologists having a field day... Yes, I said ladies. So what? Does that make me toxic? Does that make me less respectful? Why is everybody walking on eggshells anyway? Why are the masses so afraid to be judged? I mean... seriously? When are we going to turn the tide?

Now is when.

So I'm going to set an example. I've dusted off the good ole bachelor outfit. That means no skinny jeans and, yes, socks that actually look like socks, not half-socks that cost a lot more than whole-socks. Did I mention I've been practicing my wolf whistle? (Granted, my technique is a bit rusty and bound to give me a sore tongue but I'll find me some oil.) Who knows, I may even end up back in time saying crazy stuff like, "We gotta make her as real as possible, Wyatt! I want her to live! I want her to breathe! I want her to aerobicize!" If you don't know what I mean, you're just a spring chicken. Or maybe you just care as little about science as I care about driving a frigging Prius. Be that as it may, the Blue Cock is looming on the horizon.

Newsflash: My colleague and fellow caveman Rob (A.K.A. Toxic Rob) was almost fired when he switched on the mic and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we're about to close." What he should have said was, "People, we're about to close." You may want to read that again.

How unbluecockish. You may now feel offended.

Fun fact: Rooster testicles are larger than you might think, but they need to be. rooster
is expected to be up at the crack of dawn, crow his heart out - then "service" 20 or more hens during the day. (clovegarden.com)

  1. You know, Blue, I'm really out of a lot of things being so old at 62 years old. I had to look up the term metrosexual. I hadn't heard of it though its been around for over 20 years. (I do live under a rock I fear). Its so weird these days with everything with men, women, gender, etc., etc., etc. Maybe because I'm so old I tend to respect all the same and people tend to respect me. Though I do still look around when someone calls me "ma'am" and wonder who the heck they are talking to. So dust off what you need to dust off and just be content with who you are and who you want to be, not what society wants you to be.

    1. Well, betty... for what it's worth... I had to look it up, too. There's nothing wrong with living under a rock either. All that matters is you wake up in the morning and find it's a great day to be alive. Now excuse me while I try to locate my Extendable Microfiber Duster. It's so modern!

      Hope you're doing fine,
      Blue

  3. I had to laugh at the whole sock thing as women wear no socks or those little liners in their shoes as well.(oh no, I referred to the females sex as women) oh the shame...lol... I wore cute socks with some flats to work and I was told that wasn't stylish. I said it's 10 below zero, I don't care about being stylish my feet are cold.

    I say go ahead and be a real man, I love me a man who isn't afraid to be a man and speak the truth.

    Haha I love the artwork and the fun fact. I think that rooster might be tired by the end of the day. Just sayin'

    Geesh...enough already...I don't want to know about it!!!
    Wonder if Harvey Weinstein will get his just rewards????

  5. Happy almost birthday! I turned 50 this month. My daughter turns 29 in June. I can hardly believe it. I'm old enough to remember back in the 80's when things were so much different than they are now. I liked it more back then. All this talk of how 'toxic' men are is getting on my nerves. Act like a man, I like manly men. I read all sorts of romance books with alpha men in them, nothing wrong with that. You make me smile, Blue. I treat people the way they treat me. I don't care who you are, be nice to me and I'll be nice right back.

    1. Happy belated birthday, Mary! I liked it more back then, too. I always tell people I'm a mirror: I treat people the way they treat me. See, we've got a lot in common!

      Have a great day, Mary.

  7. Yep. A giant load of BS. You have to be sooo delicate with everyone now a days. Heck, can't even say kid in front of some people now or they throw a fit. Young adult, or some other crap it should be. Pffft such people are, for the most part, whiny narcissists that are, again sometimes, worse than those they go after. Then the rest of the sheep join in and Ladies and gentlemen become people. Anyone who gets offended by that needs to be under psychiatric care.

  8. I blame the Internet for the sheep mentality. And I do feel sorry for my son, as he has a lot of strikes against him, being a white male. Oh, the irony of it all!

  9. Those socks!! They slide down inside your shoes & leave your heels at risk of blisters!!! I'm turning 50 this year too Blue & life is too short to wear shit socks :-) Knee highs are where it's at!!!

    I should introduce you to an acquaintance who's taken to referring to her husband as white male privilege while conveniently forgetting her 3K handbag was funded by said privilege. Shakes Head.

    I often say ladies & gentlemen! When I was a kid it was "ladies, gentlemen, fans & airconditioners" - don't worry, I didn't give up my day job!! Frequently I say "guys" & have been reprimanded for that by non masculine types. Among friends we call each other blokes. Hey! what are you blokes are you up to this weekend?

    Have a great week bloke :-)

    1. Those socks, all right. What... you're turning 50 too? Yes, they can stuff those shit socks where shit resides... (A bit much?) Anyway, good to hear from you again. You have been told off by non masculine types because you called them blokes? Did they melt afterwards?

  10. That title certainly grabbed my attention, Blue, but no man who is a gentleman would grab me in any other way. I'm confused by hipsters and metrosexual and non-binary (although my son explained non-binary to me). However, I think most of us understand the difference between kindness and harassment. Having been subjected to verbal abuse at work, I wonder what is wrong with "ladies and gentlemen."

    Love,
    Janie, who is not blue today but rather a charming shade of turquoise

    1. What can I say, Janie.. Blue cocks sell. People are so sensitive and easily offended you if they even have an actual spine. U bet entitlement is their favorite word (or maybe boohoohoo). Love your color!

  12. People are way too sensitive these days. I wrote in an e-mail recently, "Ladies, please see below." It was directed to two women, but I copied a male coworker on their as a FYI. Guess what? HE got offended and I am no longer allowed to write ladies. SMH! The sensitivity goes both ways. As for I, I get disrespected on a daily basis, but I don't go crying about it. That's because I got rooster sized testicles (figuratively, of course). LOL

    1. HE got offended? Did it hurt? Did he need tot call 911 and get you arrested? Does his momma now spend most of her time patting his nonmasculine back saying, "There, there, my poor baby"?

      I'm impressed by your rooster sized testicles! Their size is so offensive!

  13. I love real men. The kind of man that knows how to be a man and is not afraid to show it. No, not in that "caveman" kind of way, but in that way that lets a woman, be a woman. I love a man with manners -just don't call me mam. :) When I go out on dates I don't want to stress about whether or not he will be offended if I expect him to open the door for me or order before he does. Or any of the other bullshit (Yes I cuss. Too much sometimes, lol) that is out there. I don't want my date to be prettier than me but damn, take pride in your appearance man! I could go on and on. Ohhh you're turning 50 this year? Nice! I hope you're planning something grand for the occasion. Now go dust those non-skinny jeans off and go strut your stuff! :)

  14. Let’s rock around the cock - a - doodle - doo - dah! Ooh- er! I LOVE this! YES! REAL men, that’s what real, wholesome, call me perty and slap my arse, women want!
    Stop emasculating men and then resenting them because they’re weak! Leave him with his mighty balls and stand in the shadow of their mightiness with pride!
    OK - I might be getting carried away a bit but “well said”, Blue. We’re trapped in a complicated, screwed up world with a skewed identity crisis. You get out there with your proper socks on and show ‘em how it’s done!
    P.S: that Dawn gal gets around a bit!

  15. Naturally, I had an entirely different expectations from this post after reading just the title. I mean if the cock turns blue it means it had tons of fun, right?
    Women like to complain how they slave in kitchens and homes (as if half of men don't do the same) and how men are entitled. Entitled? Excuse me? The same men who are born and raised to die in wars sometime even at the age of 18? The same men who are expected to throw themselves into the sea when Titanic goes down just for being men? Yep, I really feel so entitled when I finish my 14 working hours a day, and then have to cut wood, shovel coal and mown the lawn too and then when I'm done with it I'm sent to fight someone's war and die in it because I'm a man. Get it? Just for being a man. I do ever so love men, without them the world would crumble in seconds and we'd live in a Jane Austen horror. Men are strong, hot, responsible, caring, humorous, and we love them for it.
