The title of this post really has alot of meaning to what I’m about to write. In the sense of presents. Or should I say present? All I got this year was a cheetah print snuggie. I’m not complaining. Thats pretty much all I wanted. I’m actually grateful thats all I got. Year after year I would get all this nonsense that I would only enjoy for a month. And I always felt that I...

Dino the Guido
i would like everyone's opinion on something- if my dad was a teenager now...do you think he would be a guido? December 15 at 11: 54pm · Comment · Like
since jen thinks a guido is "someone who wears chains and has greased hair" she says no. December 15 at 11: 55pm
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA ummmm i would say no. he seems like the bad ass italian guy, not they hey look at me i need attention cuz no one likes me italian guy. December 15 at 11: 57pm
dinoooooooo nah ya i agree with gav hes too wild to give a shit about his hair .. but i can certainly see him fist pumpin yeaaaa. December 15 at 11: 59pm
I say...hm. this is tough. I was almost an immediate yes. Now, I'm not as sure. I don't think he is materialistic or would wear a lot of hair gel or go tanning. but he might be a milder guido. Wed at 12: 04am
i agree with gav i think he would beat the crap out of guidos if he had the chance. Wed at 12: 09am
i think he would absolutely have guido tendencies....i think if it was socially acceptable for him to go tanning he absolutely would. Wed at 12: 14am
sorry guys. you're thinking of dino as he is now- a very cool italian guy. However, if he grew up in our era...things would be different. As jen would say, gold chains and hair gel galore. Dino is the real situation. Wed at 12: 15am

ok, lets assess this properly and look at the facts. yes, dino loves his chick music and loves to dance. So if he was at a club in our day in age he would need all the attention on him, that's obvious. And sure he would rarely wear a shirt and grease his abs. but i would say he's metro before he's guido. he would never fake bake, he's always all natural. Wed at 12: 19am · Delete
Maria, your argument is sound and pulls no punches. I appreciate that you researched both sides of the debate. I'll have to agree with you in every aspect of your Guido Likelihood Model. The chick music anecdote was refreshingly honest. Nice work. A- . Wed at 12: 29am

hahahahah thank you. i really thought about it. i feel this is a topic that also affects me as a person. Wed at 12: 31am · Delete
hahahahah also agree with you maria. but also agree with aly that he would be a milder guido. Wed at 12: 43am
OK. i was pretty much an immediate NO, but i see the logic behind the possibility...BUT come on, dino is the guy who would BEAT UP a guido bc he'd thought all the primping was homosexual (trying to be PC here). plus, i dont see him "juicing"--the man is all about hollistic healing and def does not tweeze his eyebrows. its a tough call, but ill stick with my no. i know some "adult guidos", and he is just not like them.

Sadly, I'm coming into this a little too late to make a strong argument either way. Everyone brings up some pretty legitimate points and the only thing that there seems to be a debate on is how far the mans willing to go for a good tan, clearly a point of contention between the deanna and maria camps. I'm willing to consent no to the tanning but I don't think he could fight the urge to withhold a fist pump, the man likes to break it down. All that being said, and I can't believe I'm saying this but Rayners absolutely right ... Dino would beat down anyone willing to use that much hair gel, whether that is because he doesn't support it or because he's secretly jealous ... too big a decision for me to make. Wed at 1: 31am
plus, picture my dad going tanning with dino. HELL NO. doesnt matter what century theyre in. the men walk around in cut up tee shirts saying "ZEY!"- they clearly dont care that much about what people think about them. Wed at 1: 31am

This thread was hysterical - and my vote would be NO - as much as the tendencies are there with the italian hertiage and all - NO - I've hung out with my share of guidos and they all thought they were prettier than me...LOL! Wed at 9: 46am

Considering the man wears black sneakers with a suit to every wedding, I'm going with no. He simply doesn't have the necessary devotion to wardrobe and hair upkeep required to be a true guido. And God love him for it! Wed at 10: 24am
Yes. And Jen would be his guidette. Wed at 11: 11am
Evan Ross Wilbert
hes the guido of yesteryear...i should know im from their summer residence. Wed at 11: 59am
i feel i must voice my opinion. my father, the subject of this discusion, would be too unique to follow the conformity of "the guido". for example- he made a word that only he and his friend say; zey. he would most likely form a new breed of guido, crossing metrosexuality and the ever popular guido. chances are, no one (except chris rayner possibly) would follow this new, ridiculous stlye of the guido. Wed at 3: 59pm
Peter brings up a good point. I don't know much about the guido of lore, but I don't feel like Dino would fit the bill for the modern guido excepting the name Dino, and his loud personality. Wed at 4: 56pm
he wears BRIGHT PINK pants..... i don't think that would be acceptable in the guido world!!! lol. Wed at 4: 57pm

ok it seems that most of us have been proven wrong. While dino and i were bonding by watching the jersey shore, he observed the nature of a guido. and after asking if he were that age right now, would he be a guido? and i quote "oh yeah i would so be a guido!" case closed. Wed at 9: 01pm · Delete
ok no. he said "is Rambo a Guido?" to which we replied no. To which HE replied "Then i'm not a guido". When Maria asked if he would beat a guido up he said "ya...i have. ask mommy like 30 of them came after me once...ok i'll be honest 10 if them were girls". case closed. again. Wed at 9: 47pm

alright. it seems that i have jumped to conclusions with this one. Thu at 12: 10am · Delete
Get Dino on here. Let's talk about it. Thu at 1: 59am
this is intense. we make dino a facebook so he can voice his opinion on the matter Thu at 3: 22am

Why do men have nipples?
..is the first suggestion to come up on google when typing “why” I suppose many people are curious to know. I have no desire to obtain that kind of knowledge. In fact i have no desire to do anything right now. Even write this blog, why am I doing this? Hence, the ‘why’ title. Like, why is every song on Lady Gaga Pandora nothing like Gaga? I actually have the answer to my...

Who wants to hear my thoughts? I don’t even want to hear my thoughts half the time. I am a sadist and will make ye who read further suffer.
