A Real Man today is someone who can triumph over the challenges of modern society.
Real Men, for example, do not cower and shake in the face of double-digit inflation.
Real Men do not worry about the diminishing ozone layer.
Real Men are not intimidated by microwave radiation; they're not afraid to fly DC-10s, drive Corvairs, or invest in the city of St. Louis municipal bonds.
