GuyRule #9.2: Proper Use of the Buffer
If your buddy lays a rank fart, it is totally acceptable to "put up the buffer" (i.e., pull the neck of your T-shirt up over your mouth and nose Jesse James style), ONLY if you do so with a lot of emphatic "Aw, man!"s, or a deeply scolding "What's wrong with you?" type of look. The idea being that the fart was so bad you've been forced into survival mode like a panicked animal. To simply sit there prudishly with your shirt over your face sends a message that you are too well bred to participate in something so juvenille, etc--and is a real breakdown in Guy trust. -Pablo
