Amateur Chick Detective(s) Now on the Case

Amateur Chick Detective(s) Now on the Case
BREAKING: Nancy Drew now officially interested in the men behind this site. (And of course we'll play along if we're lobbed a question once in a while.)

Dear MB: You may or may not know, dearest Magnificent Bastard, that you have quite a following amongst the fairer sex -- although astute fellow that you are, I suspect you have some inkling. Our magnificent significant others love your website, as well they should, though I daresay we ladies tune in with even greater alacrity. Though we are no slouches regarding sartorial matters, we do not pretend to know everything there is to know about men's fashion and therefore thank you for your witty, edifying and ceaselessly entertaining tutorials. We know what we like on our men; you simply explain the elusive WHY of it all, like a sexy professor who keeps us on the edge of our seats, blushing and tittering behind our hands.

We were wondering, Magnificent Bastard, whether you could point us in the direction of a website like yours, for us ladies? Does such a thing exist and if not, would you consider adding a Splendid Lady section to yours? We do so appreciate a man's point of view ... In the alternative, would you play if we lobbed you a question of our own once in a while? (Heavy topspin, of course).

In closing, I simply wish to apprise you of the fact that my girlfriends and I are most intrigued by the man behind the message. Accordingly, we will be donning our figurative powder blue crew necks, knapsacks and knee socks for a little sleuthing to see if we can figure out who you are, Magnificent Bastard. Please be assured that should we ever have the pleasure of putting a face to the name, absolute decorum and discretion would be paramount. We are, after all, ladies above all else.

Keep fighting the good fight, Magnificent Bastard.

Admiringly yours,

Nancy Drew
