..wore the pants, and wore them well."
There are a couple of blogs that I visit daily (kind of like some folks read the newspaper daily).
Yesterday I saw an advertisement from Dockers that started with that "Once upon a time" sentence above. I wasn't sure if what I was reading was actually from Dockers so I went to see for myself...
Here, you read it:
Just because our society is what it is today...
...does not make it right or best.
Did you have trouble reading all the small words? I did.
Is this better?
"Once upon a time, men wore the pants, and wore them well. Women rarely had to open doors and little old ladies never crossed the street alone. Men took charge because that’s what they did. But somewhere along the way, the world decided it no longer needed men. Disco by disco, latte by foamy non-fat latte, men were stripped of their khaki’s and left stranded on the road between boyhood and androgyny. But today, there are questions our genderless society has no answers for. The world sits idly by and cities crumble, children misbehave and those little old ladies remain on one side of the street. For the first time since bad guys, we need heroes. We need grown-ups. We need men to put down the plastic fork, step away from the salad bar and untie the world from the tracks of complacency. It’s time to get your hands dirty. It’s time to answer the call of manhood. It’s time to wear the pants.”
