As I took a look around the Web today, I noticed that entirely too few guys are participating in The Friday Five
. Granted, the questions aren't limited to the Three S's of Manhood -- sex, sports and shit -- but they're probably worth answering anyway.1. What brand of toothpaste do you use?
Colgate's "Great Regular Flavor." For many years during elementary school and junior high, I proudly used some brand endorsed by Miss Piggy. It was worth it because it tasted like bubble gum (see question #5). I was the only guy that could say four out of five muppets preferred his toothpaste.2. What brand of toilet paper do you prefer?
The key word here is "paper." Personally, I prefer something in the tissue department. When I think paper, I'm thinking something you'd take notes on in class. Thin in the adjective that comes to mind. Tissue, however, conveys happy thoughts of things soft and gentle. I can support that.3. What brand(s) of shoes do you wear?
New Balance. I used to be an exclusive supporter of Nike, but I picked up a pair of New Balances in the spring of 2000. They withstood more than two years of nearly everyday wear... and so my loyalty has moved.4. What brand of soda do you drink?
Coca-Cola... You can't beat it.5. What brand of gum do you chew?
Juicy Fruit would be great if it lasted longer. Double Mint is usually a pretty solid choice for me. And if it's bubbles you want to make, it's hard to beat good ol' Super Bubble.
