    • The way men are represented in our society.
  • What says “Man” more than a… View slide
  •   View slide
  • -All men are slobs -Women are smart and thrifty; men aren’t -Men don’t understand women
  •  
  • -Men don’t clean -Men are idiots -Men are dysfunctional
  • There are endless examples beyond paper towels that reaffirm this metaphor
  • -Brawny realized the target market was primarily women and who spend time online -They then released an online reality show called Brawny Academy
  • Men are not: dependable, strong, and most importantly …..caring Men are a work in progress
    • All are synecdoche of larger metaphor: Men need work, men are always on a path toward the ideal brawny man
  • Other Metaphors Immerged Throughout the series Man is an animal ” you live like a pig now you live with them” There is an Ideal man we are aiming at: Fairy Tale Knight or Brawny Man (part standing for whole)
  • Yes. Men should be durable, dependable, strong, good at cleaning, disposable(jk) and of course have a softer side. So are paper towels manly? Your ideal man is just like your ideal paper towel Pick Brawny!

  • -Man = child -Man don’t know how to please his wife -Man = Idiot
