The Man Boobz Street Team Posters the World!

Man Boobz is not only a blog. We’re all about ACTIVISM! I want to thank the Man Boobz “Street Team” for spreading the word via posters in major cities across the globe – New York, London, Paris, Munich, and many more. Here, some photos documenting our global postering offensive.

Here’s one of our posters in Detroit:

And one in La Paz, Bolivia:

And one in Ulan Bator, Mongolia:

Remember the words of Sylvia Plath Genghis Khan Ghandi Gahdhi Gandhi: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then you put up some posters, then you win!”

I’m paraphrasing loosely here.

Keep up the good work, Man Boobz Street Team!!!

(NOTE: The Man Boobz Street Team is imaginary.)

Posted on August 1, 2012, in a voice for men, actual activism, awesome, I am making a joke, kitties, shit that never happened. Bookmark the permalink. 111 Comments.

  1. Hell yeah! Activism’ed! All women’s/kitties’ problems will be solved!

  2. those posters are if anything even less helpful than the suicide stickers, because suicide prevention is at least a thing that a regular dude may have spent some time thinking about

  3. also lol at the visceral thrill elam takes at that one poster that’s kind of torn up

    ‘i pissed someone off! ACTIVISM!”

  4. Oh hey, the Manboobz posters don’t have your URL on them. :( Dont you know that true activism requires directing people to your website?

  5. Beer … or FTSU?

    Is postering what Elam considers “fucking their shit up?”

    Is the more important question here:

    Does Elam now have a boner?!

    All signs point to BLEEEEAAAARRRGGHH!!

  6. I’m confused by these photos.

  7. (NOTE: The Man Boobz Street Team is imaginary.)

    I am dumb.

    (I knew I was missing something)

  8. I am very tempted to go up to Hamilton, hunt down a couple of posters and write “LOLLLL from manboobz” on them :P

  9. creativewritingstudent

    The posters are correct.

    That cat is awesome. It looks like some kind of owl-tiger.

  10. creativewritingstudent

    How does putting a poster at an angle give it a ‘Hitchcockian’ feel?

    I can’t really say they’re badly done posters, but… ‘Hitchcockian’?!

  11. Owltiger? Sounds like the next logical step from the owlbear.

  12. @Shadow, we’re driving up to Edmonton for a wedding in late August XD I hope I see a poster and can leave a lovely note!

  13. creativewritingstudent

    @ShadetheDruid

    I was thinking A:TLA-verse, but D&D also works.

    In other news, I want an owltiger for a pet.

  14. Ninja’ed by Shade!

    Played a game with a novice DM once. A more experienced DM had convinced her that “CR doesn’t mean anything,” so she expected a group of 6 or so 2nd-level characters to beat multiple owlbears.

    It was a TPK. We tried to make a fighting withdrawal, but it came to naught.

  15. MY EPIC LEVEL HALF-DRAGON HALF-ELF PALADIN WITH THE +6 HOLY AVENGER AND THE FLYING TOWER SHIELD LET ME SHOW YOU HIM

  16. I was thinking A:TLA-verse, but D&D also works.

    –It just says, “bear.”

    –This place is weird.

  17. creativewritingstudent

    *mental image of dragon-on-elf action*

    … Please tell me the elf was the father.

  18. creativewritingstudent

    My favourite Avatar animals are the turtleducks. Ducks with shells OMGCUTESQUEE.

  19. Honestly, if I didn’t already know AVfM’s shtick, I’d just think those were poorly designed anti-rape posters.

  20. @Shadow & Viscaria: Please. And take pictures.

  21. creativewritingstudent: Well it’s a good thing Dragons can naturally take humanoid form, otherwise that could be a problem. :P

  22. creativewritingstudent

    @ShadetheDruid

    Aww. You mean I had that mind-bogglingly disturbing mental image for nothing?

  23. I find it telling that the idea that should be most offensive on that poster “all men are rapists” (not that anyone but a small percentage of radfems and rape promoting MRAs believe that) is the line given the least prominence. “Men can stop rape” is apparently the most important thing think should be fought against, apparently implying that men can’t stop themselves from raping. Good job there MRAs!

  24. *mental image of dragon-on-elf action*

    … Please tell me the elf was the father.

    Some D&D dragons can take human form naturally; they’re all sorcerers, so any could potentially do it using polymorph self. So the conception wouldn’t be nearly as physically unlikely as all that; I wonder what the birth is like (does the elf mother lay an egg? Or does viviparocity* trump oviparocity**?). It’s the half-orc, half-demon, and tiefling (they have a half-demon somewhere in their ancestry) that have unfortunate implications.

    But the half-dragon template can be applied to just about anything that’s alive in 3 & 3.5. I don’t think it can be applied to an ooze, a construct, or a plant. Since lots of undead things are templates, you’d apply the half-dragon template first and then apply the skeleton, lich, vampire, death knight or what have you. But dragons are obviously humongous sluts, since nearly everything could be a half-dragon. I had an adventure focused on half-dragon giant bees once. The heroes killed a bunch … and then their dragon keeper came looking for them.

    As for cutest Avatar animal, I’m fond of the half otters we get a glimpse of in one episode in the first season (I think).

    * A perfectly cromulent word, thank you.

    ** Ditto. I SAID GOOD DAY, SIR!

  25. “Are you tired of this shit yet” is a trick question, right?

  26. @Viscaria

    They’re invading Alberta too?!!! Let me know if you find any of these hilarities, that may give me the impetus to finally take my long postponed trip up north.

    @cloudiah

    I shall attempt to attempt this :P Hamilton’s about an hr n a haff away and one of the most mindnumbingly dull cities I’ve ever visited. I only ever show up there during hockey season. I’m really not surprised that that dude found himself with nothing better to do when he ran out of gum

  27. Aww. You mean I had that mind-bogglingly disturbing mental image for nothing?

    I’m sorry! I’ve got phials of +5 imagebane brain bleach for sale! Just 5,000 $SUCCESS_TOKENS !!

  28. I notice we’re slowly taking over every post with D&D/RPG discussions now. :D

    Falconer: Since Dragons are magical, I usually go with the “whatever the fuck I want” principle (a cousin of the “a wizard did it” principle) when it comes to how they breed with non-Dragons. For simplicity, i’ve always just had it so they follow the non-Dragon’s biology (which for a female Dragon and a humanoid, the Dragon stays in humanoid form for the duration of the pregnancy).

    Side note: I don’t normally just sit and work out the functionality of different fictional creatures having sexytimes, just that I had a half dragon character once, so it sort of came up (she wasn’t a half-elf paladin with a holy avenger and flying tower shield though, heh). :P

  29. Hah! Posters advertising a hateblog? I wish you bad luck!

  30. omigod mikey you are like fiftysix kinds of stupid

  31. @Shadow, if you ever make it down to Cowtown and you’re terribly bored you should PM me, we can do awesome things. Or, I dunno… things. This city’s kind of dull, too, really.

  32. Hah! Posters advertising a hateblog?

    Indeed, Butthorn, indeed.

  33. Captain Bathrobe

    The Manboobz Street Team is imaginary…

    but it COULD be real!

  34. the fact that we didnt consider the possibility of an imaginary joke street team sticking cat pictures on somehow identical city streets across the globe proves how gullible we are

  35. I, too, wish AVFM bad luck.

  36. Hey dudes, would you look at that? Steele managed to post a comment that didn’t contain the words “vile”, “excuse me?”, “misandry”, or a rant about what he believes Ella thinks.

    I’m impressed.

  37. luck has nothing to do with it

    (because they never actually do anything)

  38. Futrelle, it is painfully, blindingly obvious and apparent that these vile photos were all taken in the same vile location. Indeed, to a successful urban professional such as myself, it is both clear and transparent that they are, in fact, the same vile picture. I expected no less from such a vile, hateful, vile, mendacious, vile, and vile jackalope like yourself, Futrelle. Yours is a vile hate movement, full of vile hate.

  39. omigod mikey you are like fiftysix shades of stupid

    ftfy

  40. Also, Steele wins ALL THE PROJECTION. Except he has to share it with the MRM as a whole.

  41. If anyone was wondering, that a Pallas’ cat in the picture:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallas's_cat

  42. Hah! Posters advertising a hateblog? I wish you bad luck!

    Protip: take a close look at the photos

  43. Goddamn Steele is dumb.

    Anyway, Cliff’s right–the AVfM ones do read more like anti-rape posters that some kids ran off in study hall.

  44. Those rape posters AVfM put up are really really stupid. The anti-anti-rape message isn’t even clear to the average Joe or Jane on the street. Really stupid.

  45. I’d like to hear if there’s a correlation between poster campaigns and traffic.

  46. Imagine the surprise of some random person who’s actually interested in stopping rape after they land on AVfM.

    If Paul E is so fucking smart, he needs to come up with a more coherent message. HA, like that will ever happen.

  47. @Shade:

    I notice we’re slowly taking over every post with D&D/RPG discussions now. :D

    We could do Star Wars, too!

    I just figure that “being a dragon” kind of … rubs off. That way I don’t have to imagine a dragon looking at a giant bee and going “You so fine.”

    I mean, I already have Tumblr to mash up beautiful horses and Loki for me, I don’t need anything worse.

  48. ” I already have Tumblr to mash up beautiful horses and Loki for me”

    Sleipnir?

  49. Falconer: I just solved that issue by having Dragon + non-Dragon reproduction viable with humanoids and reptilians/reptiles only. Everyone does different things with weird monster combos though.

    And “a wizard did it” always works as a backup. :D

  50. I’m happy to report that while the street team is imaginary, Man Boobz has gotten traffic from both Mongolia and Bolivia.

  51. Are the Spearhead actually putting up pro-rape posters? I mean that is kind of messed up. Or maybe they just think there is too much pressure put on men to not rape, or think rape is a bad thing. If only women didn’t exist, then they wouldn’t ever get raped.

  52. ” I already have Tumblr to mash up beautiful horses and Loki for me”

    Sleipnir?

    Sleipner.

    Let’s just refer to it with … Sleipnir.

  53. First picture, and I looked at the red car and thought, “That can’t be Detroit. Michigan license plates used to be blue & white, and while they’ve probably changed over 20 years, I don’t think they changed to that. On second thought, that isn’t even a US license plate.”

    And then I scrolled down, and saw that all three photos were the same. If I had to guess, I’d say Europe somewhere, based on the design of the houses and roofs, but I could easily be mistaken.

    And now I realize that, OMG I am slow, because I finally hovered my cursor over one and realized there is text that says where it’s taken. Blah.

  54. Imma go wash the dishes while listening to Duel of the Fates

    They will be the most awesome dishes ever washed.

  55. Monsieur sans Nom

    OMFG! *bounce bounce* It’s a PALLAS CAT!!! ^_^

    I lurves those kitties. If I had the money to spare right now, I’d buy a pallas kitten. I know of someone who breeds them and sells (captive bred)kittens for $10,000 each. I’m surprised that manboobz even knows about them as they seem to be one of the more obscure of the 37 members of the Cat family.

  56. @Word Spinner: Thanks for the link, and info–I had NO idea!

  57. Imma go wash the dishes while listening to Duel of the Fates

    They will be the most awesome dishes ever washed.

    I like to clean my house to Kansas. I’m all, yeah! Cleaning this house is heroic! Nothing has ever been so momentous as this!

  58. Monsieur sans Nom

    I like to clean my house to Kansas. I’m all, yeah! Cleaning this house is heroic! Nothing has ever been so momentous as this!

    Glad to hear it. No git in the kitchen and make me a sammich!

  59. That joke is supremely clever and unique.

  60. Argenti Aertheri

    I. Ron Assrod is satiring Varpole right? He hasn’t deciding to become the epitome of stupid while socking?

  61. Ooh, sudden thought: maybe dear Paul was listening to Kansas when he was writing about how putting up posters in random Canadian cities is the most IMPORTANT AND ACTIVISIMY ACTIVISM THAT EVER ACTIVISMED!

  62. Argenti Aertheri

    “Glad to hear it. No git in the kitchen and make me a sammich!”

    Well ok….hope you’re cool with stale bread and a rotten tomato (omfgs do I really need to throw that away >.&kt;)

  63. Monsieur sans Nom

    Well ok….hope you’re cool with stale bread and a rotten tomato (omfgs do I really need to throw that away >.&kt;)

    *Throws Argenti Aertheri’s nasty sammich on the floor in front of her feet*

    Clean that up woman! Or I’ll REALLY give you something to cry about!!!

  64. Domestic violence humor. Charming.

  65. Argenti Aertheri

    Did you just piss of an androgynous ninja? *stalks away* You might want to check under your bed, never piss off a ninja.

    (I also advise against calling androgynous people woman, but that advice is actual serious advice and will thus likely go straight over your head.)

  66. Oh sweetie, no, you’ve misaimed. The person you’re threatening with domestic violence isn’t a woman. Your first target for your irrational hatred was correct, poor confused lamb.

  67. Imma go wash the dishes while listening to Duel of the Fates

    I find that the best application of Duel of the Fates is traffic – makes an interesting drive to and/or from work. The Indiana Jones theme works too. They’re my two favorite “driving songs”.

    Of course, my mom loved to clean to the Indiana Jones theme. She’d turn it waaaaaaaaay up to rouse me out of bed to help clean. It was always followed by Simon and Garfunkel and Tom Lehrer.

  68. Are we roleplaying now?

  69. It was always followed by Simon and Garfunkel and Tom Lehrer.

    Well, there’s mood whiplash for you.

    Are we roleplaying now?

    Apparently Om Nom has decided to take Odious Personal Habit (Boring Misogynist) [-15]. What he’s bought with the points are unclear, as it’s certainly not Writing (IQ/H) or the ability to know not to piss off a ninja.
