Last night, after dinner and doing dishes, my fiance decided to watch a few episodes of South Park. I can't stand most of the content being used in this idiotic show, so I was on my computer watching series of my downloaded Korean programs. Then the T.V. was devoid of annoying Eric Cartman's voice or Kenny's muffles. I look over and the episode has ended and our menu was up with the option of replaying the episode (HELL NO).
The only way I know my fiance has fallen asleep during an episode of South Park is when it has ended and he hasn't pressed "next episode" to view. I look over and he had fallen asleep. His arm bent over his head, right leg reflecting his arm, lightly snoring and his right hand down his shorts...?
The first time I've EVER seen this act was an early episode of "Married with Children" when Al Bundy would always sit in front of the television with his hand in his pants and it's going to stay there. I thought it was for a gimmick related thing. I thought, it's an unhappily married, balding American man thing. But no, I think men EVERYWHERE at one point exhibits this action as a way to comfort to their tired and stressing minds...?
I don't know. I asked him why he does it and he replied, "it's warm." Then why not wear pants and not shorts, don't keep the fan on and wear socks? To which he replied, "You don't understand. It's a guy thing."
Is it, really?
Why in the world do men feel the constant need to have their hand down their shorts/pants/sweats, you name it? Is it warm? Do you need to check if you have all your "package" in place? Are you holding it in your sleep as well?
