I thought today we might talk a little bit about food and drink. Just a little bit of trivia concerning some of our favorite consumables and some not so favorite. Don’t read this before you eat your lunch, it might put you off a little bit.

You are disgusting!  I wish I had a dollar for ever time someone has said that to me.  Normally it’s a women who has been raised and brainwashed into believing that all men are the most crude and disgusting animals on the planet. I understand their feelings to a point but I hate people who broad brush groups with facts that may or may not be true.

I don’t find myself any more or any less disgusting than most women.  As human beings our entire everyday existence is disgusting.  I’m about to lay some facts on you that you’ve probably never heard.  You women out there who insist that men are more disgusting than women, pay attention. We get out of bed every morning just like you and go about our life doing all the little normal things that you do.  We brush our hair, we sleep in a bed, we go to the bathroom, and a thousand other things that all of us humans pay little or no attention to.  If you’re one of those obsessive/compulsive folks with issues about germs and dirt you might want to stop reading now.  This is sure to upset you more than just a little.  And ladies, after reading the following list you may have to rethink calling us men disgusting.  All human beings are disgusting in one way or another including yourselves.
