Cleveland Ranked 6th Manliest City

Posted By on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 9:00 AM


The newest batch of sketchily researched and haphazardly assembled city rankings are out, this time from Mars Chocolate North America on the manliest cities in America. Because everyone knows that if you're an expert on stuffing nougat into chocolate and other confectionery achievements, you are an expert on the finer points of being a Man.

Mars looked at the stereotypical measurements of the male gender, counting the number of home improvement stores, steakhouses, Oriental massage spas (not really), and motorcycles per capita, which also gives them enough data to build a Cities to Most Likely Get an STD and Die From a Heart Attack or Massive Crash on the Highway list.

While Nashville took home the top spot for the second year in a row (which leaves us dubious about the authority of the rankings), Cleveland took home the sixth spot, probably on the back of Michael Stanley alone.

NewsNet5 went the extra mile and talked to a couple of regular Clevelanders to see how they're living the Manly Life.

"I'm a mover," said Adam Rolf in Cleveland. "I got the testosterone flowing, so I like to move, I like a workout, you know what I'm saying?"

"I have two hamburgers everyday," said a Clevelander. "That's the way it is! Keepin' it manly."

Illuminating stuff there.
