Three Men and a Necktie

Filed under: Bill Bickel, CIDU, comic strips, comics, humor, Six Chix, ties — Cidu Bill @ 12:02 am



  1. She wishes that men would love to shop for clothes as much as she does, and that they have an understanding of how to wear them properly. For her to see men she’d expect to be talking about sports, cars, or barbecue grills instead talking about ties bringing out the color in their eyes is a pretty jarring experience for her. (Although I’m also sensing a “not that there’s anything wrong with that!” angle to this comic, as well.)

  2. The thing is, is that women are always wanting ment o get in touch with their feminine side. Well this is the kind of thing you get when that happens…..a world full of Metrosexuals who are just so concerned about what they’re wearing, they completely ignore a “pretty” lady they pass by.

  3. I don’t know a woman who wants this, yet all men assume we do.

  4. I can think of a half dozen ways to interpret the purpose of this strip, and none of them are funny.

  5. What’s unsettling is that the guy on the far right has no problem donning a leopard print shirt in public.

  6. The probable meaning: guys are now as interested in clothes as women.

    My hoped-for meaning: she actually wants the guy’s eyes to pop out of his head.

    I think my interp. makes the “unsettling” punchline much funnier.

  7. As someone who reads women’s magazine and the polls they publish, I have found that women say they want men to be in touch with their feminine side, but when asked about specifics, we really want ‘manly men’.

  8. I thought it was a comment on the fact that to buy something from an online store you click a button that usually says something to the effect of “buy me!” and this guy thought the product was speaking directly to him.

    Though I agree with Rasheed.
