The Man Cave. Its name alone brings to mind the mammoth-hunting neanderthals from centuries ago. However, the first use of the term “man cave” wasn’t coined until 1992, in John Gray’s book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. He wrote that a Man Cave was where “[A man] becomes very quiet and goes to his private cave to think about his problem, mulling it over to find a solution.” It was obviously a gentler time!
Today’s Man Cave has evolved. Now, they are a place where guys get together and get loud. They watch movies or sports, play video games, toast one another, and just behave badly. Don’t believe it? Then take a look at these Man Cave signs that are for sale; they’re sure to make you laugh
1. MAN CAVE RULES
The ol’ classic, this sign is like the ten commandments of Man Caves. It lets anyone entering the cave (if they’re allowed) know what they can expect, and what they must accept. It also makes it clear that dogs are allowed—no cats.
Not every man uses the Man Cave as a high-tech hideaway. While it was once left to the garage, some men are using their Man Cave for woodworking and engine repair. This sign lets entrants know they may be walking into a glitter storm of the wood variety.
3. WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MAN CAVE...
A motto no longer relegated to Las Vegas adventures, this sign lets everyone know that no matter who passes out first, does something stupid, or reveals a deep dark secret, it’s bound to silence per the rules of the Cave.
4. NO WORK
This one rings truer than ever. Today, we’re connected to our jobs 24/7, answering emails and responding to text messages long beyond the traditional 9 to 5. This sign lets it be known that if you’re in the Man Cave, you have to put work—and probably your phone—aside!
5. THE HANGOVER...
An evening in the Man Cave can result in quite the hangover. This sign recognizes the aftermath of certain nights and assures “leftovers” (those friends whose keys we took away) know they’re welcome to stick around during recovery.
