Emer Is a Man's Man

Merriam-Webster defines a Man's Man as: "a man noted or admired for traditionally masculine interests and activities. See also: Emer, and to Emer" Yup, that's right. Emer is so incredible he's now been added to the dictionary along with 100 other new entries such as:

Air quotes (1989) : a gesture made by raising and flexing the index and middle fingers of both hands that is used to call attention to a spoken word or expression. You'll never catch Emer using "air quotes" to make a point.

Dirty bomb (1956): bomb designed to release radioactive material in your pants.

Infinity pool (1992): what women experience when looking into Emer's eyes.

Mondegreen (1954): word or phrase that results from a mishearing of something said or sung. From the mishearing in a Scottish ballad of "laid him on the green" as "Lady Mondegreen." First coined by Emer in 1954 when he traveled back in time.

To Emer (2008): To be incredibly handsome, rugged, charming and funny without trying. A man's man.

What's great about Emer is he likes sports, like baseball. His favorite team is the Phillies, and despite the fact that the Phillies has the gayest logo in the world (I mean, come on, who dots their i's with stars? Little girls who also dot their i's with smily faces, hearts and flowers, that's who) it doesn't bother Emer one little bit. Do you know why? Because he's so confident in his masculinity he can overlook that gay logo and root for the team he loves, that's why.
