Banning wives from the mancave is best when the decor arrives from Wall-Girls

Adhesive sticker from Wall Girl The mancave has become this elusive room in one's home where men can be men. Far from the ridicule and complaints of wives who don't play video games, read comics or watch pornography is a mystical place where it's OK to delve into your best kept secrets.

We can't all have the stately luxuries of some retro gaming Mancaves, but there are a few essentials, keeping in mind that outfitting a proper mancave is no cheap affair. You certainly didn't take on that big mortgage so you could seclude yourself in the basement with your worldly goods and pipes that leak onto a cement floor. Hell no!

Your game-domain has to store your prized possessions in a manner an flair worthy of your time spent enjoying them. At the same time it is a place that should keep you relaxed, inebriated and in good company of all the friends your wife hates. Besides, you know this won't fly in the living room.

Unleash your inner interior decorator who knows just how to hang a poster so the tape doesn't show and always answers, "Tits" when decision points are fickle. Stop by the Wall Girls website and see what decorating wonders await the walls of your divorce-to-be mancave when that inner decorator again declares, Tits!

Mancave checklist:
  • Arcade cabinets
  • Pinball machine
  • Gigantic flatscreen TV
  • Music & video media center
  • CD & DVD collection
  • Gaming consoles
  • Video games
  • Kitchenette w/ microwave oven
  • Refrigerator full of beer
  • Bar - well stocked
  • Private bathroom
  • Seating for 6
  • Kick-ass fish tank
  • Air-hockey table
  • Inappropriate decor
  • Outside entrance for guests

Once you've perfected the look and feel of your escape-arium, begin adding the crude effects that have long been banished from your living room, bedroom and office. If you do it right, you'll wonder why you bother going into any other room in the house. Eventually you may wonder why you haven't seen your wife in weeks nor heard the washing machine running. Be sure to invite your attorney over to take part in the celebration that is - the ManCave!
