It is a male strength to make a goober of himself. One of the things we do well. ;)
and one of the things we most adore you for.
It reminds me of a movie I saw.
This older guy was talking to a younger one after the younger one had done something foolish and was considering doing it again. Finally, the old guy asks "Who's the girl?"
"Girl?" said the younger.
"Sure" came the reply. "If a guy does something stupid once, well...it's because he's a guy. But if a guy does something stupid twice, it's because of a girl"
