How you did:

Under zero: Time to buy a guitar and sit in the coffee shop singing about your feelings

Zero: You're Michael Jackson

1-12: While you display some manly qualities, you still have a ways to go. Put half an hour aside to watch Headline Sports every night and you'll be a manly man in no time.

13: Honestly, you display the perfect balance of manliness. You enjoy many manly activities and your male peers respect your degree of manliness. At the same time, you display a soft, sensitive side deep down that women just find irrisistible.

14-25: You're a real man's man. Harrison Ford wishes he could be more like you. You have likely guest starred on Home Improvement and/or been named Super Bowl MVP at some point in your life.

If you're secure enough in your manliness to partake in poetry or creative writing, why not see what's hapening at Alpha-SOUP? And yes, that was a rhetorical questions.
