When you think of the "Art of Manliness" what man comes to mind as most closely personifying the ideal set by the web site? Perhaps because of the feel of the site and the use of imagery Hemingway comes to mind for me; but while his sense of adventure, love of sport an fitness and sense of style were laudable, I don't know that he morally represented the site. Ben Franklin definitely had the moral qualities and hard work/yankee ingenuity that represents the site, not to mention a great nose for business, but he wasn't often described as being debonair or stylish. So who else, Francis Bacon, Voltaire, Socrates? Does anyone else have someone in mind who personifies the site?

The great Barack Obama!

My vote is AoM member, Carl Monster. The few year's I've been on this site, he is the man who comes to mind as most closely personifying the ideals set by this web site. To me, he's the fellow with whom I would most want to have a cup of coffee and get to know the mind behind the online persona. Carl for AoM mascot!

Roberto, you're absolutely right. Carl.

Whazzah??
