So I Was Thinking While I Was Mowing…

So it occurred to me while I was mowing that in the same way that women enjoy being complimented on a good haircut, I think men like being complimented for keeping their lawn in a good condition.  However, this is rairly ever done, in part I believe, because its a very difficult thing to word.  What should you say?  “Hey, nice grass?”  There’s always the very cumbersome “Good mowing!”

So I submit to you two new phrases to use the next time you see the king of his castle working tirelessly to defend his kingdom.  The first is fairly straight forward.  You walk up to a guy and say “Hey, nice lawncut.”  But if you really want to give the dude a compliment, offer him this encouragement: “Dude, nice mancut.”

Of course, this could have serious consequences, as you’ll see below.  Once guys are complimented, they go to great lengths to hear the same compliment again.  The following picture needs no more commentary than the caption.
