And he thoughtfully smuggled in some eggs and sausage for your breakfast.

      Or, as they say in France, Merci!

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    oh boys. way to start off sausage friday on the sassy side of the street. THIGHS!

  • Emily Dagger

    1. What sort of movie IS this?
    2. Where can I apply for the job of hosing down Bradley and his friends in their shorty shorts?

    • jspark

      Better be a comedy. those shorts are Hillarious.

    • Alloy Jane

      This is a scene from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training (BUD/S), the program aspiring SEALS have to make it through in order to move on to the teams. This movie is about the life of the late Chris Kyle, a former Navy Chief and SEAL.

      • jabes

        Have you read the book he wrote? It’s really good.

        • Alloy Jane

          I started it a while back but didn’t get too far before I had to return it to the library :-p

  • lolaleen

    “Screw you, Bradley Cooper!” (any Mindy fans in the house?)

  • The person who designed those uniforms was not a heterosexual man. And Viggo Mortensen wore them better in GI Jane.

    • So right you are. Those shorts were designed by someone with, um, designs, if you get my meaning.

    • Erica

      Ah, Viggo. Good times, watching him in that movie (and any other movie).

    • Jen

      Away to watch that movie…

    • Gay costume designer?? That’s shocking!

      • Not the costume designer – the person who originally decided that this is what Navy SEALS should wear.

        • But who is designing their uniforms? Officers (or whatever the proper rank is)?

    • I’m totally up for a Leading Men in Short Shorts film festival.

      • I nominate Russell Crowe in The Sum of Us.

        • The movie he’s forgotten he made? But, yes. Just thinking about it … well, I’ll be back in a few.

    • Introspective

      GI Jane is the *perfect* sausage friday movie reference. ERRYBODY in there had a sausage i’d take some eggs with… YUM

    • SugarSnap108

      Thank you for stirring up that memory of Viggo. Bradley Cooper doesn’t do it for me. Viggo, on the other hand ….

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Viggo wears a lot of clothes better…..

    • Oh, and then hosing them down… Whose idea was that? Who do we thank?

    • KES4K

      Apparently, per my USMC husband, these are actually what SEALS wear for training, as they have since the 40s. Insane.

      • sundaynightaddict

        This is one of those weird situations where I think it would be better to be historically inaccurate and give ’em a couple more inches for the movie. I literally laughed out loud when I saw this.

        • mixedupfiles

          Reno 911.

      • I didn’t know it went back that far, but I did know this was the actual uniform. Military tradition can go a step too far!

        • dalgirl

          Or A Bridge Too Far.

        • KES4K

          Right? I’ll admit to being a fan of silkies but these look like they’d be uncomfortable on lady parts, much less active man parts!

    • conniemd

      Ahh so many Viggo lovers like myself. Was disappointed we didn’t get any pictures from the film festival circuit he’s been pole dancing.

  • Ahem,…*Bradleybooty* (coughs)

    • barbarienne

      My reaction was “Hel-lo BUTTOCKS!”

    • sugarkane105

      The Cooper Pooper!

      • demidaemon

        HAHAHA! It certainly is delectable, though.

  • TAGinMO

    I defy anyone to design another pair of shorts that short that could look that awful on a guy that hot. Eesh.

  • Beardslee

    Guys who look like this are not the sort of guys that appeal to me but wow, did he ever work hard to get to look like that – and does he look good!

    • *cough* Along with the help of certain products. If you compare his physique at the time of the Oscars, to even what it was a month ago — no workout regimen gets you those results alone.

      • In_Stitches

        I don’t know, he doesn’t look that much more muscular so much as just bigger. He was so lean before, it’s not like he’s fat now, he’s just…fleshier. I lot of pasta can do that.

        • Violentcello

          I thought the same thing. He’s bigger, but not necessarily buffer.

      • Denise Alden

        Agreed. He looks like a baseball player, which is to say: steroids.

  • DaveUWSNYC


  • SewingSiren

  • Crystal


    Those are so SO unflattering. It looks like the crotch is pleated, even though it’s not and that’s just an effect of them not fitting his dick.

  • SayWTH

    And, surprisingly, I’m ok with this kind of wake up!

    • SayWhaaatNow

      I like your username. 🙂

      • SayWTH

        Right back atcha!

  • PastryGoddess

    POW! Thighs BAM! Sausage

    Who needs caffeine when you’ve go TLo looking out for you.

  • Karen Belgrad

    Why hello Kyle!

  • RussellH88

    I’ve never seen a guy bulk up in the face that much. I wouldn’t really recognize him.

    And small bragging point: I have thighs like that. To the point where I usually have to go a waist size higher than I should in order for my thighs and ass to actually fit in them.

    • marlie

      So does my boyfriend. He complains about that every time we go shopping.

      • RussellH88

        Yeah, it can be a pain. I could have 5 different pairs of pants and they’ll fit 5 different ways.

    • par3182

      Pics or it didn’t happen!

    • Glam Dixie

      Most guys would never notice it was a problem with the way the boys tend to wear the supper baggy cargo shorts or loose fit jeans. I applaud your dedication to a better fit.

    • jabes

      Ice hockey? (And even if it’s not because of hockey, there is a brand that sells trousers [maybe only jeans?] designed to fit “hockey ass,” if you’re interested)

  • Danielle

    Ah, the chiseled butt cheeks of freedom.

    • FrigidDiva

      I may have to steal that phrase, it’s fabulous.

    • eandh99

      great phrase, but I think it applies more to Chris Evans in the avengers, where’s that gif of him punching the heavy bag?

      • That gif is my happy place.

      • Danielle

        I’m not even going to lie to you, that phrase was inspired by a post I read about Chris Evans in his Cap uniform for The Winter Soldier.

    • Lisalady161

      I love sausage Friday, but your comment just made my summer. *Wheezing with laughter*

    • Introspective

      is it crazy that i read this phrase hearing a choir and violins in the background?

  • Figurón gruñir hhjuhgygyghvgtyujb fin guió DEF7Lviv BYU Lo molotov ❌

  • Jaeda Laurez

    He discovered Bowflex, but still has Noassatall. I’m not liking any of this, unfortunately.

    • AnaRoW

      Hee! I sort of agree. His body’s okay overall but the shorts are so unflattering that I think they probably make his ass look even worse than it is.

      Also if you want to see a great backside, check out Hugh Jackman in the latest X-Men movie. No ugly shorts (no clothes at all really) to ruin anything.

  • MartyBellerMask

    The more you scroll, the better it gets!

  • Anne Silberman

    We must bring back short shorts for men!!

    • Beardslee

      Yes, I loathe the culotte style of shorts that are so ubiquitous. Coupled with an oversized drapey T shirt, a baseball cap, and sneakers.

  • Caius Keys


  • FrigidDiva

    He looks better without the beard. I know it’s the character for the movie, but he is SO bulked up that when he had the beard you couldn’t really see any definition to his face–this looks more like the Bradley I know and love. However, as much as I love THIGHS, those shorts do nothing for him, he should just take them off.

  • RescueMe23

    Nice thighs yes – but those shorts are ridiculous!! I could not stop laughing!!

  • nomnom

    I think this film with be the Top Gun of this era, what will all the possible inadvertent homo-eroticsm while gunning for the hetro-macho audience.

    • @Biting Panda

      Oh, I hope so.

    • par3182

      The porn version will be redundant.

  • Ozski

    This look does nothing for me. Give me Hamm in a tight suit, please. Although I appreciate the generosity.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Yeeeeaaaaahhhh no. He’s all yours.

    • Aidan B

      Agreed. Not doing a darn thing for me.

      • Anna

        Me 3. I’m finding this funny, as opposed to sexy.

  • Jennifer Bober

    Wow! As if the 2.25 mile walk wasn’t enough to get my heart pumping.

  • Anna


    I’m all for men in more revealing clothing but this isn’t having the intended effect on me. Even the view from the back isn’t turning me on, it’s making me laugh harder. Sorry Bradley! I’ll still probably go see your movie though.

    • MoHub

      Especially the view from the back.

  • marlie

    DAYUM those are some short shorts. It’s a shame the army doesn’t make them wear those anymore, otherwise I’d have the bf wearing them around the house every day.

    • Lori

      Those are Navy and I think they still wear them. They did as of the last time I was at the Hotel del Coronado. You can (or at least could) see part of the beach where the SEALs train from the beach at the Del. I imagine there’s at least one Bitter Kitten in that area who can give us the uniform update.

      • marlie

        You’re right… SEALs are Navy, not Army. Darn.

        • Lori

          I don’t care, but if you say it in front of one of them they might have to kill you.

          Just kidding, but the Army/Navy thing is definitely still alive & kicking.

          • marlie

            There’s all sorts of rivalry. My dad’s a (retired) Marine, and my boyfriend is in the Army. My dad begrudgingly accepts that. 🙂 Also, I went to the Army/Navy football game with the bf a couple of years ago (to which he wore his dress uniform), and it was INTENSE.

          • Lori

            I bet. I have a friend whose family includes former Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. They just need to have a former member of the Air Force marry in and they’d have the whole set. Apparently holidays are known to include friendly, and occasionally not so friendly, exchanges about it.

          • Alloy Jane

            Oh damn, he’s Army? Never mind about the shorts then, I don’t think you want your guy hazed within an inch of his life and then taken to mast (or whatever the army equivalent is) for wearing unauthorized insignia. That shit is serious.

    • Alloy Jane

      Aaactually, Army Rangers wear what they refer to as Ranger Panties, which are black and not as tight and reminiscent of Richard Simmons-wear. They can be bought online, but they come with a lecture lol.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      Girl! That’s no excuse. Find some short shorts and make him wear them around the house. “Because I told you so” is good enough reason.

  • nannypoo


  • Tanya Wade

    It puts the lotion in the basket or it gets THE HOSE!

  • Frank_821

    yes very Tom of Finland. Pity those shorts are made with with at least 5% lycra…hmmm

    still Bradley looks nice in the rear

  • Wink

    Regarding tiny shorts, these are horrible. The tennis shorts from the 70s and 80s (worn by John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, etc) were MUCH better!

  • Lesley

    i’m sorry but am i the only one repulsed by this? i’m giving myself a pat on the back for skipping breakfast this morning before seeing this..

  • Glam Dixie

    This was a sausage fest that gave me a naughty giggle. No straight man designed this.

  • decormaven

    Frying sausage on the street- isn’t there a health code?

  • malarson2

    Looking forward to seeing what it all looks like through the filter of film with lighting and music does. We all know how that makes EVERYTHING look beautiful.

  • Miss wks

    Castro clones.

  • Shawn EH

    First ever Wet T-Shirt Sausage Friday! It’s like they know we’re watching!

  • Julie Chase

    Those shorts made me laugh my ass off, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate what’s in them. Well, what’s not quite in them. I’m malfunctioning this morning.

  • boweryboy

    I’ve always imagined he would have muscularly nice and hairy legs to swoon over. Now I know that’s not the case. Plus, the proportions of his ouch-fit are so off it makes my eyes twitch – them some teeny shorts. Nice face though. I could appreciate the ass if his legs were nicer…

  • FibonacciSequins


    • Gatto Nero


  • MilaXX

    Is that nice little onion booty a side effect of his weight gain? Mama likes!

  • Beardslee

    For those of you who like these photos, I recommend the “Making the Cut” series that you can stream on Netflix. They’re about the incredibly grueling selection processes for getting into various special forces program in various branches of the armed services. It’s interesting to see the kind of things and the kind of men that such programs require. And they all wear shorts like this.

    • Alloy Jane

      I love that series. It’s total porn, but I feel bad for the guys in it because if you wash out, it’s so public, and if you make it through, you have to overcome the stigma of being a public face in traditionally silent communities.

  • Fred Vaughn

    Country hams back there! YUM…

  • Tee

    This is free-range meat. No hormones. Me likey.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    And here I thought “wet t-shirt” contests were only for women. Nice to see the equal opportunity here. Those are some short shorts and that is a nice ass. Happy Friday everyone!!!

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    Sorry, nerdy guys without moose knuckle are still my preference. This actually seems to render him even less attractive to me. There is something satisfying about seeing him being hosed down, though…

    • Gatto Nero

      Extra points for getting me to look up “moose knuckle.”

  • Kirstin McAulay

    Just no…. not attractive at all

  • Imasewsure

    How I miss the 80’s!! Hilarious and much appreciated!! 🙂

  • JynxTheCat

    I see no breakfast but these thighs oh my. When do shorter shorts for men come back FGS? Men cover up like they’re creating a sherpa these days. Black socks to knees shorts to knees…its sad.

  • AthenaJ

    Who wears short shorts? Bradley wears short shorts!

  • KT

    Hooray, some actual sausage on sausage Friday!!!!

  • another_laura

    That is one very nice rear end, there. Thanks, Kyle!

  • e jerry powell


  • Tess Tea

    Who wears short shorts? Damn, now I will have that jingle running in my head all day.

  • LadyVimes


  • lamh36

    Yeah, I may be alone in this, but I’m not really feeling “swollen” Bradley. I liked his svelte figure. I don’t know, it just looks like he is as uncomfortable with the extra muscle as I am looking at it. He’s not carrying it with confidence I’d say

  • macwell

    I’m sorry, but – he has all of nothin’….

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    I barfed.

  • Pardon my being crass, but how exactly does a fellow stay…*contained* in shorts that short? I mean, they’re too short for boxers, yet I see nary a hint of brief seam. Dance belt? Jock strap? Fervent prayer?
