It’s all about the angle..

It’s funny how the angle from which you look at something can make it appear to look like something else.  The writing on both T-shirts in the picture below is the same innocent phrase ‘keep calm and try an ale’ .  The only difference being that the one on the left appears to spell ‘ keep calm and try anal ‘ .


This Weekend, Don’t Settle For Anything Less Than A Drink That’s Out Of This World

Yesterday, just a week after sending a satellite past Pluto for the first time, NASA announced the discovery of Kepler 452b, the most similar planet to Earth ever discovered. Celebrating their historic achievement, for this Toast of the Week, we decided to have a little fun, thanks to the good will of bartender Danny Neff at Manhattan’s Space Age-cool Holiday Cocktail Lounge. The laid-back bar crafts impeccable cocktails, but often dolls them up with umbrellas and toy plastic animals, because drinking isn’t always a serious endeavor.We convinced Neff to throw a few actual meteorites on top of the bar’s Ocean Club cocktail (complete with tiny dinosaur witnessing the end of his reign and the eventual rise of the humans). Chilled, meteorites are just as effective as whisky stones at keeping your drink cold without diluting it (they are significantly heavier though, so place in the glass carefully to avoid breakage). Sure they cost more, and there’s no telling what these cosmic rocks might do to you*, but we’re pretty sure this isn’t how the new Fantastic Four got their powers.


Ocean Club
(by Danny Neff, from the Holiday Cocktail Lounge, Manhattan)

  • 1 1/2 oz Santa Teresa 1796 Rum
  • 3/4 oz Amaro
  • 3/4 oz Lime juice
  • 1 oz Pineapple Cordial
  • Shake and serve on pebble ice topped with Angostura bitters.

*NOTE: The Holiday Cocktail Lounge does not put meteorites in their cocktails on a regular basis. AskMen can not be held responsible for any cosmic mutations or broken teeth incurred from the act of adding meteorites of dubious composition in your drink. The meteorites we used (Sikhote-Alin) contain no lead or other toxic minerals. This is for fun only (but it is pretty cool).

A Big Penis Isn’t Really What Women Want, Says Study 


Long story short

Researchers have discovered what women think is a “good looking penis”, and most men will be giving high fives all around when they find out that length comes SIXTH on their list of priorities.

Long story

Do you think that your penis is a handsome old chap? Would it absolutely earn a place on People Magazine’s “100 Most Beautiful Penises In The World” list? Does it do its own version of Blue Steel?

Well now you can find out, because scientists have found out what constitutes a “good looking penis”. The study, conducted by researchers at the University Children’s Hospital Zurich and published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, asked 105 women what they rated important about men’s penises. And the results were rather surprising.

Coming in at number one was the “general cosmetic appearance”, which, for lack of a better phrase, means that what women really want is a pretty ol’ peen. Second in importance was the appearance of pubic hair, although what kind of appearance was not specified (neat? au naturel? punk rock?). Wading in next was the girth of the penis, which was tied in third place with penile skin, followed by the shape of the glans (or, head, if you will). And, now for the [literal] biggie: penis length didn’t even make it onto the list of what women think constitutes a good looking penis untilsixth place. That’s right, it might be time for some of you to throw away that terrifying penis enlarging contraption you bought from Amazon and invest instead in some hair clippers and a solid skincare regime.

The research was all done to find out if women could spot whether the penises in the photos presented to them had undergone surgery for hypospadias, a medical condition where the urinary opening is not located in the right place. It was discovered that most women aren’t able to tell if a man had had surgery for hypospadias, and that the “position and shape of the meatus”, i.e. the urinary opening, actually came in last place in women’s ranking of Things That Make Penises Look Nice. “The information may help prevent the development of shame or impaired genital perceptions about penile appearance,” says Dr. Norma Ruppen, who led the study.

So there you go. Big penises are out, and handsome penises with nice skin and hair are in.

Ask The Big Question: Does your penis look like George Clooney though?

Disrupt Your Feed: Trust me, my penis is more aesthetically pleasing than my face.

Drop This Fact: The average length of an unerect penis is 3.6 inches.

Shelby Daytona Cobra Replica 

Mention the word Shelby and the first thing that comes to mind are the iconic convertibles we all know as the AC Cobra. But enthusiasts know that there is more to Shelby than that. For example, the extremely limited Shelby Daytona Cobra racecar that dominated FIA Sports Car racing. Finding one of these is unlikely, but luckily Shelby is celebrating the 50th anniversary of winning the FIA World Sports Car Championship by producing 50 replicas of the Daytona coupe.
