“Man Flab, It’s Fab”
If you are trying to get the biggest audience, then you’re looking for the everyman …
Plus there’s no denying that there is an added sexiness to a man who knows how to enjoy himself, be it with food, wine or women.
Guys who are all puffed out, they strike me as insecure people. They’re like peacocks with their feathers in full bloom, and that just seems like way too much.
The East Village is full of those guys who are 25 years old and 95 pounds. You want to say, ‘Eat a sandwich!’
