I don't know about you, but I am involved with a woman. That, by definition means that whenever she and I go out together, I somehow end up holding her purse. I don't know what it is with women and their purses. My lady can't go anywhere without it, but then tries to dump it on me every chance she gets.
It would be ok, if her handbag was something manly or cool like a man purse or a hunting knife, but inevitably, it's something dainty with lots of sparkly things on it.
Waiting around at the mall this weekend bored out of my mind, I realized that I really I should be able to do something to make it more fun for a man to hold a woman's purse. I mean, if we men are going to end up holding the darn thing, shouldn't it be something we can have more fun with or at least not be mortified to be seen with?
So here are my picks for the 10 HandBags A Real Man Can Carry:
10. Ugly Toad Purse
If you have to carry a purse around, a good option to help a man maintain his dignity would be something ugly and slimy. And I think to myself, what's more guy that an ugly toad. If you are seen holding this little toadpurse around, it's sure to get a grin of appreciation from the other guys and perhaps a disgusted squeal from a lady or two. Plus, if you get really bored, you could walk around asking women to kiss your frog and try to turn it into a prince. (handbag here)
9. Decapitated Head in a Bag Purse
If you got to carry a purse around, holding something that looks like a decapitated head will not make you look like some fruity sissy. More likely, it's make you look like the slightly sick weirdo you really are. It sure is unlikely that anyone will laugh at your expense when you are walking around with a decapitated head.

8. Give Yourself a Hand Purse
If you have to carry a purse around, might as well have an extra hand handy in case you need to scratch your back or pick up the shopping bags from the floor. Unfortunately, this hand purse is not really made for some other things an extra hand could be used for when you're bored. (handbag here)
7. Chinese Take Out Handbag
If you have to carry a purse, why not make carry a purse that looks like something you really love? Yum...chinese food! As you sit there impatiently waiting for your honey, you can stare at your Chinese Carry-Out Purse and start dreaming about the crispy orange beef and the fried dumplings you are going to have to treat yourself with for suffering through one more tedious shopping trip. What's great is that if you happen to see one of your buddies as you are carrying around this handbag, you could always just pretend its lunch. (handbag here)
6. Lethal Gold Gun Handbag
If you have to carry a purse around, you may as well carry something that makes you seem mysterious and perhaps, even a tad bit dangerous. Granted this little gold gun inside this pretty little purse is not going to scare off a gang of hoodlums, but it may be enough to help you preserve a tiny bit of male pride. You're toting around a gun after all. (handbag here )
