There are some unspoken set of rules that separates a normal guy from a ‘BRO’. A Bro is anything but not an ordinary guy and Brohood is the kind of bond two y-chomosomed persons share. From not standing next to each other while peeing to taking the secrets of other Bros to the grave, Bros have the universal understanding for what to do and what not to do. The set of rules not only applies to the way a Bro conducts himself, but also to the way he interacts with other fellow Bros and with the opposite sex. Here are the ten most important rules in the Bro Code, according to Bros:
- Rule 1
A bro must have another bro’s back no matter what the circumstances are. A bro must be there for his bro in times of need be it financial difficulty, the matter of girls, fistfights, and drunken bullshit.
- Rule 2
If bros share a house/flat/apartment, all bros are obligated to stay out for the evening if a fellow bro wants to entertain a woman.
- Rule 3
A bro shall not gaze at a naked bro, if for ANY reason a bro gets naked, all other bros will act as if nothing is out of the ordinary, taking their eyes away. If the towel drops, so do your eyes.
- Rule 4
When using urinals, a bro stares straight ahead AT ALL TIMES. He is not allowed to look either left or right.
- Rule 5
In the event that two Bros lock on to the same woman, the Bro who has been without woman the longest is given first shot, a shot that must be taken within 24 hours, before being passed on to the other bro.
- Rule 6
If a bro dies while lifting weights, the other bro shall add more weight to the bar before dialing 911.
- Rule 7
When a bro offers another bro chewing gum, that offer is for two or more pieces, never one! Picking a single chewing gum is a punishable offence.
- Rule 8
Bros take care of fellow bros who’ve had too much to drink. A bro can even take pictures of drunk bro with empty beer bottles. Most importantly, a bro never lets another bro drink and drive. If your drunk bro puts up a struggle you are permitted to forcefully stop him, in that situation the usual rules of bro combat apply.
- Rule 9
When a Bro leaves his seat, the seat becomes vacant and cannot be reclaimed if a fellow Bro takes it. Lift your feet, lose your seat.
- Rule 10
When a Bro can only take one other bro to something epic (for example: having 1 spare ticket of a football match)… The Bro doesn’t show favoritism by choosing a Bro, instead all bro’s are offered a chance to compete in a challenge (or series of challenges) in order to earn the privilege.
