A man was denied leave to go to a baby shower. His response to his boss was perfect.

Baby showers: they’re not just something women have to suffer through. Men get to as well.

But apparently not everybody knows that it is an occasion for BOTH sexes.

At least certainly not the boss of this male army specialist, claiming he submitted a leave request to go to a baby shower only to be swiftly denied. In capital letters. And red ink.

The pregnancy questions you were too afraid to ask. Post continues after video…

The soldier posted photos online showing his submission to take leave for a baby shower.

His commanding officer crossed out baby shower and eloquently wrote “MEN DON’T GO TO BABY SHOWERS” before returning the form.

So the soldier amended his request with a more ~macho~ touch.

The wonderful response to his commanding officer's denial.

"Going home to the Appalachian mountains to drink whiskey, wrestle bears, and shoot lots of guns. I also plan to grow out a beard, chop down a hundred trees with my axe and eat 10lbs of thick cut bacon with my wife, whom I plan to have lots of unprotected sex with, because I am a man and that's just what we do. Football."

No word on whether his more rugged approach worked, but we love his tongue-in-cheek attitude.
