Atlanta #16 on Newest, Stupidest Ranking List

While we must admit to being part of the problem (i.e. giving these ranking lists oxygen by continuing to comment on them), the general wrongness of the most recent list demands that we continue to be a part of the farce. The Manliest City rankings are out courtesy of Mars Chocolate North America, and Atlanta jumped up 7 spots to #16 this year. Factoring concentrations of "manly" places like Home Depot against "girly" places like nail salons is the highly-scientific process by which Mars determined the list. To our thinking, the question this list raises is what's more extreme- the unnecessary nature of this list, or the absurdity of a candy company creating it? [Atlanta Business Chronicle]
