Str8 Ballin

"Chief. Boss. Gangsta. Dude. Playa." Just a few words that men use when talking to other men. "What's up Boss?" -- "Oh nothin, just chillin playa" etc. But there is one word that a man, or any person for that matter, should never use. That word is "Guy". There is something inherently annoying and condescending when a man says something like "What's up guy? Need some help guy?". I can't quite put my finger on it, but I know I don't like it :-)

The thing is, 2 male friends will often refer to each other as "Dude" or "Chief" -- but NEVER, never ever, will a guy refer to an amigo as 'guy'. If you happen to like the movie Zoolander, and well you should, you'll notice that Owen Wilson uses a new little phrase every time he meets up with Ben Stiller. "Capeeetan" and "Bro" are 2 that come to mind. You never hear Owen Wilson call Ben Stiller "Guy", now do you? Merman! Listen to your friend Billy Zane, he's a cool dude. He's trying to help you out.

What do you think guys?
