I don't know if we buy Brawny or Bounty paper towels in our house. I never look at the plastic wrapping, but the man on the package is important to some people. In October, Georgia-Pacific madeover Brawny Man's 70s porn star-lumberjack image and gave him a more modern, sensitive persona. Now Brawny has a TV ad campaign to introduce the new millenium Brawny man.

Now that Brawny is innocuously modern, you can fantasize that he's all you want in a man — more sensitive, more emotional, more absorbent — and his haircut won't break the spell.

Create your own Brawny Man.

I liked the old Brawny Man. He fit right in with Marlboro Man, Bill Buckner, Tom Selleck, and my dad.

My wife and the other massage therapist in her office actually had a discussion about this the other day. Her co-worker likes the old Brawny man and my wife prefers the new one. Unfortunately, I look like neither (or fortunately).

So I created my own & surprise of all surprises ... he's gay.

But is he absorbent?

He does what he needs to do. I'm his beard.
