Manly Man Shampoo Guaranteed to Improve Male Masculinity

Updated on October 30, 2010

I’m not sure how the mens hair products specifically Manly Man Shampoo came into my house but it did. Manly Man Shampoo appeared and its use had some ‘interesting’ consequences.

Here’s one idea.

I bought it. Yes, I confess, it is a possibility that somehow I decided the man in my life wasn’t manly enough.

Actually, the more I think about it, the more I believe this is a distinct possibility.

I might’ve bought this mens shampoo because I was tired of him presenting me with a glass on red wine at the end of my busy day.

He’d welcome me home from a busy work day with open arms, delicious aromas wafting around the house welcoming me in a warm embrace.

It didn't stop there......

Flowers appeared regularly too.

He’d often urge me to sit down and ease my black high heel shoes off.  He would then take my feet in his lap and massage my tired feet, even before I had time to take off my black stockings. 

I know that this is hard to believe.  No woman should have to put up with this type of behavior should they?  There wasn’t even any obvious discomfort from my man about foot odor!

This hub about Manly Man Shampoo was inspired by the wonderfully talented Stan Fletcher and although it wasn't entered into his competition - Killer Ideas for Your Next Hub Competition - there are other great writers there.

This is my second attempt (ever) writing humor.   Thanks Stan!

My first humorous hub is about the dire consequences which confronts women when their underwear wedges in their bottom crack!

I hope you enjoy this subtle woman's humor!

Something HAD to change......

I really wanted this shocking behavior to change.  I wanted a man’s man.  I wanted a man to put up a shelf in the lounge – not someone who treated me like this.

I wanted someone who had the strength to change the tires on my car – not lift a casserole out of the oven!  For goodness sake!  How emasculated can a man get? 

It was time to change the status quo.   I confess that, one day, when I was browsing the shelf of the mens hair products for mens shampoo I saw, Manly Man Shampoo proudly proclaiming its presence. 

This Manly Man Shampoo came with a guarantee to transform less manly men into stronger more rugged men.  “Manly Man Shampoo, you might just be the answer to a girls prayers” I said to the black bottle etched in gold!

I was now desperate for change so I bought this Manly Man Shampoo.  Then, I just left it in the shower for him to find and use.

Something changed......

He must’ve used it because things seemed to improve, and quite quickly. He stopped massaging my feet. Then he began to suggest take out meals more and more.

Then, (and if you knew my man you would know just how shocking this was to me) I noticed him looking, rather pathetically (like he’d never seen them before) at the tires on my car for wear and tear.

It was a good sign. I was happy that my subterfuge appeared to be working.

Some time passed.....

Then the other day something strange happened. 

I took off my glasses (as you do) and stepped into the shower.  It’s difficult for me to see without my glasses so I fumbled around reaching for the shampoo and I blithely applied it to my hair.  It lathered rather deliciously right away and I was marveling at how foamy my shampoo had become.  I luxuriated in this sensation and left it on my hair for quite a long time while the warm water caressed my body.

I stepped out of the shower and looked into the mirror.  I wanted it to confirm what it always did.  I expected it to reflect back that sexy confident woman image.

Not this time!

To my horror, something had happened.  I appeared transformed.  I’d grown hair on my upper lip.  There was some hair around my chin too.  How did that happen?

Then I put my glasses on and looked at the shampoo bottles and I realized what I’d done.

I quickly grabbed the phone ready to call my attorney.  Manly Men Shampoo HAD a lot to answer for and I was angry.  I was ready to take legal action against the errant manufacturers of this product. 

Then, while I was waiting for someone to answer the phone, I felt a hot flush envelope my body!

And finally.....

A footnote.....

Manly Man shampoo DOES exist.  It doesn’t guarantee to do the things I said it would – this is pure fiction on my part.  But what if it could? 

With its use will women become men and vv?   It’s a wicked thought.
