HEY, YOU SWEATY, ROLLED-UP-T-SHIRT AND TORN-JEANS KIND OF GUY!
By Sally Macdonald
WE WANT YOU to be Scene's manly representative in the National Manly Men
Parade and Spam Festival on June 22 in Roslyn, [Washington].
TELL US WHAT A MANLY KIND of man you are. Or have somebody else -- like
your wife or girlfriend or sister or anybody -- nominate you.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? You know -- somebody who bucks bellies with his
manly friends, scratches any manly part that itches and belches with a manly
roar. We _don't_ want to hear about caring '90s kind of guys who do their
share of the housework and say "pardon me" when they make rude noises. (Oh,
OK! If you're _that_ Seattle PC, we'll let you enter, too.)
WE'LL PRINT THE MANLIEST TALL TALES in Scene and pick one manly contestant
to represent The Seattle Times in Roslyn's parade -- so you have to be
willing to be manly in public. Prizes will include honorary membership in
The Order of Manly Men, a can of spam, a T-shirt, a manly beer stein and a
THE FESTIVAL, sponsored by The Order of the Manly Men, will include a Manly
Men Golf Tournament, an amateur Spam Cook-off and a Manliest Toolbelt
Competition (best, most, and most original tools). The parade, at 10 a.m.,
will include the March of the Manly Men and their first-born sons, the
Running of the Spam Cans, the Spam Queen and her court, manly vehicles and
a bevy of Biker Babes on motorcycles.
KEEP YOUR STORIES SHORT. Send them along with a manly picture to Manly Man,
c/o The Seattle Times, P.O. Box 70, Seattle, WA 98111. Include your name,
address and daytime telephone number.
