The Art of Manliness Weekly Roundup: Tulsa State Fair Edition

Yesterday, I spent the better half of the day at the Tulsa State Fair. Saw some cows, checked out the vendors selling crappy air brushed t-shirts, and of course I ate the crap out of some deep fried food. Sure, it wasn’t the healthiest stuff I ate, but there’s only one time a year you can eat a deep fried Snickers bar or deep fried s’mores.

Kate’s Uncle Buzz is in town from Vermont. While we were at the fair, Buzz and I did the Mariene Pullup Challenge. 50 year old Buzz beat the crap out of 26 year old me. Which just goes to show you, the Uncle Buzz Workout will get you into shape.

Let’s do some links.

Stop (@ writer dad) Writer Dad recounts standing up to hoodlum kid vandalizing in his neighborhood. Even if it was just a sticker on a stop sign, it’s a pretty riveting story and is a lesson to men that sometimes you need to take a stand and not let jack asses get away with their crap.
