I’m pretty sure a ROMEO group would do OK here (Retired Old Men Eating Out) most of the guys I hang around with already belong to ROMEO because Nancy prefers to eat out and she has great influence among other women who are married to old men. Ergo: Nancy wants to eat out, she calls another wife who doesn’t want to cook and esta bueno! Retired Old Men Eating Out because the women made us.
Members tackle delightfully irreverent (just don’t call them mundane!) topics with gusto — from park benches to an animated debate on how to hang a roll of toilet paper (the latter resulted in a hung jury). In an era of accelerated pace and change, the clubs allows members to revel in the mildly fascinating minutia of everyday life among friends, similar to Seinfeld‘s approach years ago.
Dull Men’s Club has a list of topics. Herewith are my ideas up for discussion at the next meeting of the Atenas Chapter of the Dull Men’s Club…
- Who has the sexier voice: Ophira Eisenberg or Terry Gross or Carl Kassell
- Fiber – over rated?
- Tools I lost last week
- Extending the life of your razor blades
- Midwestern towns I have visited
- Who has the sexier voice: Ophira Eisenberg or Terry Gross or Carl Kassell (because any topic can be covered over and over and over… epitome of dull
- Paper or plastic? Not bags, but as a financial tool
- Tools I found last week
- Home Depot or Lowe’s?
- 1968 Cubs
- Was the Chevrolet 409 the best damn muscle car ever built?
Of course dull is in the eye of the beholder. But that’s a pretty good boring list.
Maybe one more:
Dull Men. Oxymoron?
UPDATE: Dull is not boring… from their blog.
…A boring man is a dull man — just one who doesn’t know when to shut up.
Boring men go on and on. Boring men believe that they are interesting.
Dull men accept their dullness. Dull men tend to be introverts whereas a boring man is an extroverted dull man.
