Quotes

Fashion Guy: Here's a tip: no straight man knows how to tie a bow tie. That's why they make these R.S.V.P. cards. Simply check "no, I will not be able to attend your stupid fancy-dress party" on the card, and all of your bow tie problems are solved. After all, it's not like it's the only time your sister will be getting married.

One of the few good Comedy Shows that pokes fun at the rediculousness of stereotypes
28 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are few comedy shows or comedians brave enough to poke fun at the ridiculousness of stereotyping. Most of the time, people are content to just adhere to laughing at well posted jokes about "the way people really act" etc. I was really surprised by this show, and I valued it not only for lampooning what life as a stereotypical "straight guy" is like, but also lampooning "Queer eye" and the whole sense that gay guys and straight guys are really so different such that either side needs the others' advice. Whether it was joking about straight fashion's heavy use of "layers" or the straight male's willingness to turn anything into a competition, I personally felt that because the show was designed to lampoon another show that enforced stereotypes, that it could only be funny by breaking down those stereotypes.

By the end of its small 3 episode run, it did its job, and I'd say it was great to see the hosts take on and poke fun at things which may be true to some extent, but they remind us of how overblown those truths can be. After all, when's the last time you really competed with another guy by ordering more condiments on your hot dog.... not that that's gay or anything.
