Parachute pants. Too funny.

There are good for only two things, break dancing or skydiving and I would pay money to see you breakdance or fall out of an airplane.

More for the latter.

Network dude,

I too thought man buns we're idiotic, much like white people sporting dreadlocks.
But wait! Check this out. (Sorry, wrong site) Apparently, someone has devoted their life to this content-rich manbun website, so there must be more to the manbun than we thought. For example, did you know that there are seven types of manbun?

'Man Bun Hairstyle' ... It's copyrighted!

wow, I am sorry you feel so offended by this. In reality, I could give a rats ass how stupid folks wish to appear, it's them who have to go through life and eventually, look back and laugh at how funny they looked. I had my share of stupid things I wore in the name of fashion and "fitting in" when I was young and needed that validation.

This is a light hearted rant. I promise, no man buns were harmed in the writing of this post.



I'm not offended, it has nothing to do with me lol. I thought that it was hilarious that you even wrote a rant about it!

...I would not expect a fellow craftsman to degrade an entire culture...


I think the people Dude is referring to (hipsters) are not doing it for cultural reasons, they are doing it to be trendy.






I would love to believe that, especially for the sake of peace and universal brotherhood. I even made mention of the detriment of the hipster-craze on the views of my ancestral culture.

However, after chiming-in about the indigenous culture of Southeast Asia, India, and NerdGodess' mention of Anishinaabe culture,..... the replies being directed at me become more condescending, hostile, and ridiculing.

As for my introspection, I should not let the opinions of others weigh heavy on my psyche. But that does not account for the rest of this thread.


May we all walk in Light.

I bet if you walked around Brooklyn and questioned every top-knotted, bearded ding-dong you encountered (and you would encounter a s*** ton) and asked them what they knew about culture the first thing they would probably think is that you wanted to start a yoghurt factory.

I agree about the man buns as the latest trend looking silly. It's the metrosexual generation. The african american and different cultural man buns do look appropriate to me.

The turkish prison comment you made is interesting. If that's true and not tongue-in-cheek comment i for one would like to see you elaborate on that sometime. Do tell...

Think it's stupid all you want, but when my husband had long hair & bunned it, he got laid more. There's just a certain level of hotness to man buns, a lot of women covertly love the bleep out of them.

It's f$^&ing sexy as hell if done neatly & understated. End of discussion. Now I wish my hubby hadn't cut his hair off for work
I'd have him bun it and go to town.

I am glad you find it sexy. I too have a few things that if I see on a woman, I have very naughty thoughts run through my brain. But being a boring heterosexual man, I just can't seem to embrace the man bun any more than I can embrace the idea of a man wearing a dress. Some like it, I happen to not be one of them. I am not sure if I am supposed to feel shame for feeling that way, but meh, I'll get by some way or another.

Now a monkey smoking a cigar will bring a smile to my face every time. (no idea why)

Do you mean that time over Macho Grande? I'm afraid I'll never get over Macho Grande.

In a manner of speaking.

His hair length came after our dating began. You do the dirty imagery here


Edit: to be fair, I guess I could had made it patently clear that we began dating, then he grew his hair long, thus he got laid moar by me when it was in a bun versus down or in a braid. My bad, I suppose.

He did just get a hair cut today, though. I know he hates keeping it short. I suppose some "I'm sorry work wants it short" sex is in order tonight.

No, you were clear. I was just being a wise ass and implying he was getting laid elsewhere because of his bun.

that's the spirit, take one for the team. And I suggest a foot rub and bring him a beer just after you finish.
