What does the phrase Que es mas macho mean?

There was a skit on the TV show "Fridays" (a show that competed

with SNL back in the early 80's) of a game show asking the

question: "Que es mas macho?" The skit had non-Spanish speakers

doing a Spanish-language game show, where the question was always

"Que es mas macho?", and the contestant was given a choice of 2

different unrelated items (Such as Lloyd Bridges or a volcano). The

Spanish dialogue was so simple that anybody could understand


There was also a Laurie Anderson song called "Smoke Rings" that

featured the same question, done in the same format as the TV skit


The phrase is Spanish for "Who is more 'macho'."
