Product Watch: We Did Not Ask for Special Kleenex

Kleenex Mansize, for those voluminous -- yet virile -- tears that creep out during a late night screening of Brian's Song.

No. Do not need. They already invented Kleenex for men. It's called toilet paper.

Apparently, this is an actual product in the UK. I'm reluctant to dig into the question of why they thought men needed supersized tissues in the first place.

I'm with you on that one, probably best not to examine that one too closely.

Why men need super size tissues: because they sob their guts out during Die Hard.

Guys like it BIG! BIG cars. BIG homes. And now BIG tissues! Girls like it BIG too, but sometimes we have to settle for average! LOL!

Hell yeah! Go big or go home

Evidently, you men have large amounts of man-snot that need to be expelled into something extra large and absorbent.

I mean, what else could it be??

Look...after dating a guy for six years who thought it was appropriate to have nothing but newspaper and old phone book pages available as wiping materials in his bathroom...I'm all for anything that promotes tissue-like products for men.

Are they pre moisturized with some WD 30?

Welcome new readers! Maria, Climb, Robert,

I know straight guys fall for bigger-is-better marketing all the time, but I just don't get it here.

Anon, maybe you mean WD40? Or 10W30? either way the joke works, welcome to GG/SG.

I am still stuck on the idea that men need a larger or different issue than women. My nasal emissions seem pretty average, though I've never thought about it.

This is one more made up marketing moment. Like, "Secret, strong enough for a man, made for a woman." Read the ingredients. Nothing different in there.

Maybe it's for guys that come a lot - more Kleenex for easier clean up.
