poll: deconstructing a neologism

There's a neologism I've seen on some dumb jock profiles in the last year: mascular. I'm trying to understand just what it means when I see that on someone's profile.

At first glance, it could be a typo. But it seems more likely it's a portmanteau of masculine and muscular (nice 4-letter overlap). It also rhymes with vascular, which makes me think of sexy veins popping out of bulging forearms lifting a curling barbell.

What do people think?

Not the sharpest tool in the shed here (me). It took me about 5 minutes and dictionary.com to figure out what you were asking.
