Grocery Store 'Man Aisle' Could Lead You Straight to Mr. Wrong

beer aisleHey ladies, are you still looking for Mr. Right? A man who's smart, sensitive (but strong), funny, adventurous, easy-going ... and preferably looks like Alexander Skarsgard? (Or, you know -- IS Alexander Skarsgard.) Well, let me tell you where you won't find him: The brand new "man aisle" at one NYC grocery store. That's right, the "man aisle."

What, pray tell, might one find in such a gender-specific spot as this? Well, the most obvious and clichéd choice would be to guess that the shelves are stocked with such macho must-haves as chips, barbecue sauce, razors, condoms and booze. And if that's what you guessed ... you win! (God knows what you get for a prize. Beef jerky, perhaps? Just kidding, you get nothing. It is the MAN aisle, after all! AHAHAHAHA!)

Anyway, I'm not kidding about the razors and booze and stuff.


As chief operating officer of Westside Market NYC  Ian Joskowitz explains, "It's your essentials. It’s your water, alcohol, soaps, shampoos, deodorants, razors."

“If you’re going to have some guys over to watch a game, you can pretty much stand here -- not move two feet! And get your beer, barbecue sauce, chips, whatever. It’s all right here!”

Swooon! I don't know about you gals, but I think I'm in love. Seriously, if you're up for a future of being ignored by a bunch of guys with beer guts yelling at football players on a TV screen as you refilll empty chip bowls and silently mop up spills, you know where to go: The man aisle.
(The funniest part of the whole thing is how they optimistically assume guys shopping in the man aisle would actually have a need for condoms! Awww, so clueless. Playboy would be a big hit, though.)
Would you date a guy who shopped in the man aisle?
