ACCORDING TO BILLY BUBBLEGUM
Real Sports for Real Men
Football is all run, pass, punt and catch.
Baseball is simply throw, hit and fetch.
Track is run, jump and leap till you wretch.
Real men can be found in a Dart match.
Hockey is slapping a stupid puck.
Horse racing is nothing but pure luck.
Hunting is shooting a sitting duck.
Real men watch women wrestle in muck.
Boxing is learning to take a punch.
Ski jumping will make you lose your lunch.
Polo ponies will cost you a bunch.
You are a real man, I have a hunch.
A screaming shuttlecock whizzes by.
A crochet ball has a wicked lie.
A 7-10 split to gamely try --
these sports are for real men, do or die.

Nope, those are dog words. You do hear:
