We hunt, fish, race snowmobiles and sell out monster truck events. But fellow Minneapolitans, we’re not measuring up on the manly list!

Mars Snackfood recently released their list of “America’s Manliest Cities” – a study commissioned by COMBOS and Bert Sperling, the dude behind the popular “Best Places to Live” studies.

Damn it, you guys —┬áMinneapolis ranked 18 out of 50

Well some sissies may argue #18 is better than #49 or #50, but any real man will tell you there’s only one place to be on that list, and that’s #1.

Listen up, men.

Starting today, let’s all make a vow to stop showering, only eat at BBQ restaurants and spend all day Saturday at the hardware store.

Our wives will love it, and we’ll show the whole world just who has the hairiest chest next year at this time.

Just wait and see, Nashville. That’s right. We’re talking to you.

(Disclaimer: Mars is a client of my company, but I don’t work on this brand and didn’t work on this campaign)

    Ironically, Combos are one of the least manly snack foods out there.

    Well, Mars IS the God of War.

    We could invade Wisconsin, but if we won, we would have to keep it.

    I just waxed my body hair, that’s has to push us up at least 7 spots to 10.

    Does this mean I have to stop watching Y&R? If so, f*ck Mars.
