Whose The Daddy?

What is it about masculine men showing the world an occasional soft part of themselves that gets the oestrogen pumping in women of a certain age?
Photographs of my favourite redneck zombie killer Norman Reedus feeding a motherless baby have circulated the globe and a collective "ahhhhhhhh" has rung out from women everywhere, who wish he was
"their daddy-to be!"
Nature or nurture?
Perhaps we are all still just animals
and that macho protector is still order of the day?

  1. He looks like he needs a good washing up.

  2. Judging by his clothes, he looks to me to come from the Stone Age. Don't really fancy ultra masculine men myself.

  3. Nope. Doesn't do anything for me. He's all yours.

  4. kind of a tweeker vibe going on there - makes me want to be the masculine daddy-protector and snatch that baby away...

    but then i had my ovaries removed back in 2001...

    *shrugs shoulders, walks away to take care of the animals*

  6. John,just catching up with your two blogs in one. (1) So sorry to hear about the sore bum and the rat under foot didn't sound much of a walk in the park either. (2) Why is that man smiling at at the photographer on the right hand side of him while stuffing that bottle down that poor little baby's little gobby. You have to look at the babs while he's being fed in case he takes too much and chokes. No 'aaaaaaghs'

  7. Nope. Not for me! My muck-bucket of a man will do for me, and watching him walk his baby cow in from the fields makes my knees wobble.

  8. I draw the line at men breast-feeding, but maybe that's just my upbringing.

  10. Yes, I thought it was so cute too. However, when I see a guy with a baby in real life, it does not make my loins burn.

  11. I can smell the dude from here (I don't mean the baby).

  12. Girls. Sorry, Highly Esteemed Ladies, you can't have it all ways. There were times when Marcia was absolutley bloody knackered and little Alex would wake up, usually just when I tried to sneak in after getting back in the early hours filthy dirty from site so I would abandon all thoughts of tucking into the drinks cabinet and having a shower and make up his bottle instead and feed the little bandit while watching Sky News at a low volume so Marcia could rest.

    In fact, his little radar became so attuned to my nocturnal arrivals, even if I climbed in through the patio windows the little bugger would wake up. I am sure he associated me with dirt and sweat and the stink of diesel for if I washed before giving him his bottle, he'd get all confused and bawl his frigging lungs out.

    I may have biceps like spider's kneecaps but I identify strongly with that photo as I suspect any real bloke coming home late from a hard day's work and realising the mother of his child is exhausted would.

    1. You sir are a very nice man. Not sure my hubby (ex) ever realised how knackered I was.

  13. Then there are those who would tumble for a scruffy Englishman cradling a one-eyed rooster. You know the type, I'm sure!

  14. Just give me the baby!

    My exbf was cradling my terminally ill hen, Fancy. She was wrapped in a towel from a bath to relieve her of an egg. He held her for me and sang "Rock A Bye Baby" to her. She tucked her head under the towel. I was really melted by that scene. When she died two hours later, we both were devastated. Yes, it made me all mushy.

    1. No, I was wrong - it is "who's"

    1. I'd still have the hots for Tom Selleck if he won first prize in a baby *throwing* contest.....

  17. I think looking after the baby of an exhausted mother might get you laid.

  20. I don't watch any zombie movies, I no longer have any estrogen and I am way past that "woman of a certain age" and yet this beefcake does trip my trigger I'll admit.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Nah. Not my style. He can just wander off into the sunset (yes I know I am mixing genres) taking the baby with him.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I had a detailed account of the episode from Joe. Where do they get the baby milk ?

    ReplyDelete
  23. You know he's only fattening it up for Christmas don't you?

  24. Have to admit he's not doing a lot for me. Am wondering about hygiene issues involving the grubby waistcoat....

  25. It's the contrast, John. A fragile baby in a man's strong arm. A turn on if ever there was one. Can't quite remember now: I think it was in the late Seventies, early Eighties when they first cottoned on to the power of poster boys and the new born. Talk about babe magnets.

    Only taking a dog, a goat or a gander for a walk round the park comes a close second.
