Himbos are the superior breed of man

Lauren Karmo, Staff Reporter

After seeing the “Da Vinky?” video this past week, I have only solidified the idea that himbos are, in fact, the best group of men on planet Earth. Step aside jocks and simps, the himbos are here to stay.

For those who may not be as familiar with the himbos, imagine a Venn diagram with three overlapping circles — hot, dumb and respects women. A himbo is a man who falls in the centerfold. If he is just dumb and respects women, he’s a simp. If he is hot and dumb, he’s a fuckboy. If he is hot and respects women, he’s a unicorn and probably hiding something. Himbos are the ideal combination of all three.

While I haven’t always been able to put a name to it, himbos have always been the highlight of my day. My best friend is a himbo, and I love him dearly. There’s nothing more refreshing than a happy-go-lucky, smiley boy — head empty, no thoughts.

Himbos are the perfect platonic pairing to an overthinking yet powerful woman. While she deep dives into whatever is on her mind that day, he just sits there and listens, only occasionally speaking up to ask about what’s for lunch. It’s a trope that will never get old.

Himbos are the men I don’t mind seeing on T.V. — Nick from “New Girl,” Jason from “The Good Place” and, of course, Kronk from “Emperor’s New Groove.” Kronk really supported Yzma so well. He was willing to kill Kuzco — who lowkey deserved it — but was just too dumb to actually do it right. Not to mention the muscles. He was the blueprint.

The prime example of classic himbos are the “Da Vinky” boys. With their four inch hair poofs and inability to recall the number of days in a year, they really just make me feel at home, you know?

Dear readers, all week I cannot stop thinking about the Da Vinky boys. I have watched that TikTok at least twice a day since it first came across my “For You Page.”

I have sent it to nearly everyone in my contacts, I even found the follow-up videos where they say Earth is the closest planet to the Sun because it’s so hot. They aren’t wrong. It is hot.

They’re just free. Ignorance is truly bliss what I would give to just go through my daily routine without a care in the world and so confident in my life.

As we get closer to the election, everything has become so dominated by politics, but I think it’s time we take a step back and consider who we want to spend our energy on. Himbos are the lifeblood of this society — we would truly be nowhere without them. Get rid of Joe Biden and Donald Trump. We just need squirrel-chasing college boys.

We as a society have progressed past the need for any other type of man. It’s himbos or bust, no question about it.
