Becoming A Real Man

  1. I received this in an email today and thought I'd share it. I'm not fond of male-bashing and hope not to insult any of our male colleagues here, but some of the "Courses" are kind of cute.


    A new two-year degree is being offered at the University that
    many of you should be interested in: Becoming a Real Man.
