Now THIS is a contest worth losing!

Ha ha ha ha ha! Portland comes in fourth-from-last! Only San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York were bigger losers in this important contest!

Mars Snackfood US announced today the release of the “Top 50 Manliest Cities” in the U.S. – a study commissioned by COMBOS® Brand in partnership with Bert Sperling, the research expert behind the popular “Best Places to Live” studies.

Via the “Top 50 Manliest Cities” study, COMBOS® – the hearty, pretzel and cracker snack made with real cheese – examines what makes a city manly and ranks 50 major metropolitan areas using criteria such as number of professional sports teams, popularity of power tools and frequency of monster truck rallies. Cities also lose ranking points for emasculating characteristics like the abundance of home furnishing stores, high minivan sales and subscription rates to beauty magazines.


OMG this just rocks on so many levels.

UPDATE: Oh wait! That was last year. This year? PORTLAND IS DEAD LAST!

I can't stop using exclamation points! Because this is so wonderfully WTF and great and like a big pretzel filled with REAL CHEEZE!!!!

Portland's certainly top of MY list of wanna-live-there American cities. And now even more so. :)

I can't imagine why you wouldn't prefer to live in a high-monster-truck-rally area!
