Mo Beta Male  Reply with quote  

So I've been listening to men talking about ADJ and how much they are a "Beta Male." This book is becoming the new Bible of the Beta Male population of the unswivelized world. "I'm such a Beta Male that I'm the king of Beta Males," "I'm the proto-type for the Beta Male," "there's no one more Beta Male than me." It's now hip to be a Beta Male, so much so that they can each visualize themselves swinging from vines, gruntin' and scatchin' as they lead the Beta Males to Beta Male Land. "So does that make them Alpha Betas" asked Junior Elan. My response, "yup, the Alpha Beta is leading the way down the aisle to the frozen turkeys for a little midnight bowling."

Somwhere in all this there has to be a joke about The Master Beta.

Where the hell's my pointy stick, I feel the sudden urge to go poke at a big hairy bulldozer.

Which just goes to show that scientists are not the best judge of what females of any species see as good mating material.

but isn't admitting to be a beta that in itself a disillusion to betaness? remember the beta male will never actually consider himself a beta.

Very true. My better half, who also read and loved the book would never think of himself as a "beta male". But I know beta
