Dear Moog: 42 Metrosexuals on the Wall…

Posted: May 23, 2008 in Dear Moog

It’s another time for an exciting episode of “Dear Moog”

Where I put as much thought and effort into crafting the perfect answer…

…as Paris Hilton does in securing her reputation as a wholesome, shining example of intelligence and humility.

So, yeah…

…not so much.

I am not responsible for any stupid sh*t you do to yourself or others as a result of taking any of my advice seriously. There, I think that covers it.

You’ve been warned.

Our letter today comes from Anonymous Idiot.

Dear Moog,

What the hell is it with all of the European dudes looking like the queer eye guys? Plus they carry man-purses. Please help an idiotic American understand. Also, can you tell me why the meaning of life is 42?

A confused but Anonymous Idiot


Dear Idiot,

First off, thanks for writing.

I haven’t had any really good questions for weeks…

…and based on your letter it appears that this streak is going to continue.



Question 1: “What the hell is it with all of the European dudes looking like the “Queer Eye” guys? Plus they carry man-purses.”

I have to tell you I’m a little perplexed, as I’ve never seen this “Queer Eye” show that you speak of.

As such, I can’t tell you why all the European guys resemble Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley or Jai Rodriguez.



Or…as that wacky Carson would say:

“Well shove that balled-up fist in my ass and call me Sally!”

Okay. Maybe he doesn’t say that.

On TV.


I hadn’t noticed that European guys looked like flamboyantly gay men.

Frankly, if I see anyone vaguely resembling a gay man (read: SUPER HOT), I usually avert my stare, run away, and then spit loogies while grabbing my balls.

Then I try to have sex with women.

You know…reaffirm my manhood.

I’m really tolerant like that.

Actually, I used to work with a guy that carried a man-purse.

Endless teasing.

Lots of fun.

I highly recommend it.

Question 2: “Also, can you tell me why the meaning of life is 42?”

I thought you actually made this one up.

Until I Googled it.

Because I found this:

The answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.

Apparently, this is pulled from some book I’ve never read (I only read books with pictures).

As such, there was too much text even in this definition to bother with.

Honestly….I’m lucky I finished reading the f*cking title.

So, I’ll give you my own answer.

Most of my work in finding this answer is already done for me… Rolling Rock beer.

They, of course, have whittled down the mystery of the universe to the number “33.”

If you do the math, you’ll find that the difference between the two answers (42 and 33) is:

(I’ll do this longhand so you can follow along)

The answer is 47!!


…forgot to carry the 1.

The answer is 9!!

As we all very well know, when you say “9,” you’re essentially saying “No” in German.

Nine = Nein = No

As such…

The answer to “Life, the Universe, and Everything else” is:


Women have known this forever.

You should have just asked one of them.


There you go! Yet another exciting episode!

I have a “Dear Moog” link on the top left of my page, or you can email me here.
