This bi-annual zine certainly isn’t lacking in the testosterone department. In fact, the focus of the zine is basically all things man. Heterosexual man. Hockey watching, beer drinking, bar food eating man. Luckily I fit the demographic and had quite a few chuckles whilst reading issue 16 which includes articles on dudely topics such as bowling, boneless chicken wings and a dude profile on “Papa John” Schnatter. It takes a while to get acclimated to some of the St. Louis dudespeak, but fortunately the issue came with a glossary so I won’t die wondering what exactly the word “gingervitis” means (I’m not telling!) If you never fail to laugh at a fart or dick joke, this zine is for you. –Garrett Barnwell (Dudes Magazine, 3872-A Connecticut St., St. Louis, MO 63116)
