Possibly the only Onion piece that isn't farce

I don't get the posturing men do. They've played more badminton than they've accumulated hours of street fighting. I've been in school fights, tournament fights, and trained in some form of combat for 29 years. And I still try to avoid fights at all costs and I try to never speak about how I would do in a "real" fight. I just live as best as I can and try to be a good person.
Yes fights can still happen, but my best self defense is to create a life where I am surrounded by intelligent people.
