The following penalties are outlined a guidance for men everywhere. As a true man following man-code, it is your responsibility to administer these punishments as well as receive them when deserved.

These are only suggestions to benchmark severity of punishment, and a group of men may determine a more fitting punishment (2/3 majority rules, man under punishment waives right to vote).

Tier 1:

  • Punished must retrieve his own beer from the fridge, having waived right for fellow man to courteously bring 2.
  • Punished must leave the room for a predetermined period of time (usefully applied in punishments for extreme flatulence.)

Tier 2:

  • Punished must buy fellow man a beer (common courtesy, but can be used as punishment). The fellow man can specify any brand not considered extremely expensive (>$10 per bottle).
  • Punished must go outside to start the car in extreme winter conditions so that his buddies have a warm car before departing.

Tier 3:

  • Punished must perform an act of substantial embarrassment (higher allowance for creativity, including semi-nude snow angels, picking up the DUFF, etc).
  • Punished must purchase the next round at the bar out-of-turn (applicable up for up to 6 consumers).

Tier 4:

  • Punished must publicly apologize or admit to his transgression (though punishment can be waived for accurately describing the man code that has been broken.)
  • Punished must offer to help his buddy make a significant upgrade to his house/car (i.e. paint his deck, re-shingle his roof, tune his engine, etc.)

Tier 5:

  • Punished must accept an open hand slap to his face (though the punisher must be aware of the potential loss of man-points for bitch-slapping another man.)
  • Punished must pay the entire bar-tab for the evening.

Tier 6:

  • Punished must accept a direct closed-fist punch to the face without retaliation.
  • Punished must accept long-term embarrassment to be administered such as eyebrow shaving.

Tier 7:

  • Punished must accept three full swings, closed-fist from the punisher without recourse.
  • Punished must offer to take entire group of buddies to a high-class bar, being the designated driver, and pick up the complete tab.

Tier 8:

  • Punished must accept an outright ass-kicking from one individual.
  • Punished must take his friends to Disneyland (or a strip-club if preferred), picking up the entire tab.

Tier 9:

  • Punished must accept an outright ass-kicking from multiple individuals.
  • Punished must pay airfare to take his friends to Amsterdam.

Tier 10:

  • Punished must accept a coma or worse from his former friends’ ass-kicking without retaliation.
  • Punished must buy a bar.
