Bud Light presents...


REAL MEN OF GENIUS

{Real men of geeeeeene-yuss}

Today we salute you, Mr. Token White Male Running in a Women-Only Race.

{Mis-ter "YOU can-not deny myyyy rights beeee-cuz THIS is A-mer-ick-a!"}

So is this proof of that little-known Congressional addendum to Title IX, or are you seriously trying to impress your girlfriend? Or, some bunny you're just wishing would become your girlfriend? Most likely she's kicking ass to stay way ahead of you, and you're huffing mightily to try and keep up.

{"I'm not stick-king out heeere toooooo much, ammm I?"}

We're thinking it must be Title 9-and-a-half, and you must be thinking you're Mickey Rourke. All's you're needing now is strawberries with whipped cream at most of the aid stations.

{Maaaaaay-be Kim Bas-sing-er IS your grrrrrl-friend?}

"Women Only" Half-Marathon? "Women Only" 10K? 5K? Please. You know your rights. They can't get away with this. It's the logical inverse of Kathrine Switzer at the Boston Marathon all over again. Maybe you're expecting that little 5-foot-3 race director to leap from the curb and wanna rip your bib off.

{Weee're reeee-mem-ber-ring THAT faaaaa-mous pho-to!}

Good thing your "good to (gulp) see you" / completely embarrassed Significant Other is there to protect you. Too bad she's so far ahead. But maybe with a little suave and debonair you can coax some protection and comfort out of these sweet-cheeks chix hanging back all around you. Maybe that totally disbelieving photographer might even help!

{"Heyyyyyyyyyy watch those el-bows, budddddd-dy!"}

So crack open an ice-cold Bud Light when you get to the finish line, O Dean Dean the Media Machine, because---we've just got to believe---you are so very popular with the Runner's World that all those three thousand women only... would be willing to pay at least a hundred bucks apiece just for the privilege of running by your side.

{Mis-ter To-ken White Male Runnn-ning in a Wo-men's-On-ly Race!}

Bud Light beer: we don't care where it's made; we just dig their commercials.

Yankee Folly of the Day:
This kinda reminds me of that poster I once saw bragging about our wonderful American educational system, where the photograph is focused on the big white letters being painted by workers at some cautioned crosswalk in a school zone that spell: "SHCOOL."
