Get Man Rules Now on Amazon. The Perfect Gift for the Male Snowflake in Your Life

In his hilarious book, Man Rules, satirist Lex Jurgen develops a handbook for Millennial Males that is absolutely perfect in terms of training them to be more like the Greatest Generation, and less like the snowflake generation of wussies.

So there's that.

Excerpted from Man Rules, on "Meeting Her Friends..."

At a certain point you’re going to have to meet your girlfriend’s social circle. You’ve been putting this off longer than that digital rectal exam you promised your primary care physician you’d endure four appointments ago. You’d rather be out on the lawn with a flashlight hunting for gophers in the sleet.

You adore this woman on some level. There is no logic tree to detail how you might adore the other people that she adores. When her college roommate is yammering on about her rescue dog and how vegan organic mayonnaise tastes just like Kraft’s chemically optimized masterwork, stay focused.
