IT MAY BE IMPRESSIVE IN 9TH GRADE...:

The Return of Chest Hair (Jessi Klein, 12/16/08, The Daily Beast)

Ever since Adam caught Eve checking out that snake, men have spent way too much time worrying about the appearance of their manhood. What’s more important, the size of the wave or the motion of the ocean? Well, I’m here to make a bunch of men more neurotic by telling you the answer is none of the above. As far as I’m concerned, the real signifier of masculinity lies in another area entirely: chest hair. And it’s making a comeback.

After many years of drought, during which the only reliable source of manly tuft seemed to be the Baldwin brothers, chest hair has returned with a vengeance as the sign of sex appeal and virility.


...but you aren't a man until your pelt blankets your spine.
