  • You'll never catch manly hunters like these guys going to IKEA. That's not how we roll here.
In a poll released today that could only be described as "way scientific," Nashville has been declared America's manliest city. But you already knew that, didn't you?

The poll was commissioned by the maker of Combos, those little pretzel things with the fake cheese in the middle, to empirically show that we're manlier than everyone else. Points for masculinity were delivered for our devotion to hunting, fishing, BBQ joints and NASCAR. Meanwhile, we scored low in "emasculating" factors such as the presence of home improvement stores, subscriptions to beauty magazines, and minivan sales.

New York City finished last for its preponderance of models and guys who wear all-black even though they're not going to a funeral.

In related news, those of us who drive minivans momentarily thought of punching out the maker of Combos, but then decided to go home, whimper, and watch the Antique Road Show with the curtains drawn while pigging out on chocolate and ice cream.
