Dude working out with a smile

Hey dudes, I'm here to tell you about my exciting new Kickstarter project, New Dudes Magazine, the workout magazine for dudes who like watching dudes working out. And just because it's not actually "legally" affiliated with kickstarter.com due to the fact that I was previously banned from their site for allegedly attempting to blackmail potential financial backers doesn't mean that this isn't a great investment opportunity for all you young entrepreneur type dudes out there.

And just like a real Kickstarter project, I'll be offering prizes for your pledges! But more on that later. First let's talk about the magazine.

Do you like wrestling? We wrestle all the time at Dude Mansion! Is that weird? Don't make it weird, dude.Let me ask you a question: Do you like working out, but don't know what to do? Do you often find that when you try to lift weights, you've suddenly forgotten how? Do you need step-by-step pictorial instructions for basic exercises like sit-ups and push-ups? Do you need to see full-color photographs of brand new dudes showing you how to do the exact same basic exercises every single month? Then you need New Dudes Magazine.

New Dudes isn't just another workout magazine full of pictures of buff sweaty dudes in the gym… it's a workout magazine full of TONS of pictures of buff sweaty dudes in the gym. New Dudes contains 30% more dudes than any other workout magazine on the market. 30%! That's a lot of new dudes!

But in order to make this dream a reality, it's going to take lots and lots of money. Running a magazine has lots of expenses, from printing costs to legal fees to cocaine hot tub parties with strapping young possibly underage boys with fake IDs and model release forms which absolve me of any and all criminal charges.

But enough business, let's talk about those prizes!
