Do you feel a bit manned-out? I mean, the man thing is really going on nowadays with, Superman, Spiderman, Batman and X-Men (yes there is more than one). Something was missing, and there he was, ‘Bloke-Man’.
Bloke-Man has special abilities like some of these other Super or Action Heroes and Heroines, but in a different way.
Bloke-Man in fact is indirectly and ignorantly diplomatic. Yes Bloke-Man takes the constructive and peaceful approach to diffuse or help or pick up a situation. Additionally, some or most men have a hidden ‘Bloke’ in them, waiting to show the world.
One of the primary special abilities of Bloke-Man is ‘laughter’. He can make people laugh without even raising a finger. He has a loud husky laugh that is infectious and flows on to all in his company. Bloke-Man’s humour and jokes are so good (of course it has to be good) you would be laughing, belly laughing deep within your stomach, to the point it hurts and you cry with the laughter – ‘Oh please stop Bloke-Man, it hurts.’ Again, without raising a finger.
A few other special abilities of the Bloke-Man are his out-of-the-square blokish diplomatic way to diffuse or pick up a situation:
- · Quickly putting a drink in front of a volatile or down individual – ‘Mate, get one of these into you right now’;
- · Giving a person a huge smile and bear hug – ‘Oh come here’;
- · Using bodily noises and talks loud and makes funny verbal noises – ‘Brrr (vomit), burp, fart, cough, crazy laughs’;
- · Using funny gestures – ‘Blinking eyes, erratic hand gestures, wiggles eyebrows, ears, chin and nose and disturbs his hair’; and
- · Does a blokey funny dance, or Bloke-Walk or Bloke-Dance (you could well picture what he does).
Bloke-Man dresses very plainly so you don’t recognize him, so he just looks like another bloke. He wears a plain t-shirt or collared shirt or flannelette shirt, straight cut jeans or business slacks and either his deluxe Dunlop sneakers or dressy black shoes. Looking good Bloke-Man.
Bloke-Man wears a mullet hairstyle, or crew cut/all-shaved-off or short-back-and-sides, depending on the situation or person or group he has to deal with. Yes, Bloke-Man is Mr. Versatile.
He comes in all nationalities and cultures, again to match the situation and person or group. Yes, hard-to-believe, but Bloke-Man is a man for all occasions.
He will sometimes bring with him other blokes similar to him to make a very blokey situation, but making sure no one is all bloked out by it all.
There is even a day called Bloke-Man Day (can’t get more original than that), being considered to be given to Bloke-Man, for all his efforts and for the all the good blokes around the world.
Let’s hear it everyone for, the Bloke-Man.
