With This Quip...

A couple of years back, a friend of mine was posting a profile on a dating website. I was giggling my butt off, rather unkindly, as he tried to find the right 20 words to sum up his fabulousness. I offered some suggestions, but as you can guess, they were all a little sarcastic and humourous. I reasoned that I would never date a guy who didn't have a sense of humour; might as well come out laughing.

I ran across this piece today and I have to share it. Someone is publishing a book of the best ads he's seen, and some of them are here. Love it, love it, love it.

A witty personality doesn't guarantee a love match, but a deficit of humour will absolutely rule one out.

do ya like mine?

Bitter, unsuccessful middle aged loser wallowing in an unending sea of inert, drooping loneliness looking for 24 year old needy leech-like hanger-on to abuse with dull stories, tired sex and Herb Alpert albums.

Just wondering

Until you mentioned '24' I could have lined up a bunch of chicks for you!

I never got a single reply from my personal ad; and Daddy always told me 'honesty was the best policy'. Evidently not.

"I'll be honest with you: I smoke a lot, I swear a lot, and I don't give a sh*t about what your hopes and dreams are. I'm looking for a smart, sexy, funny guy who can teach me some C++, and let me drive his Porsche. I'll be a really bad influence on you, and if we go out longer than four months, I'll totally ruin your life. So let's just have fun while it lasts. And don't have a dog, because I hate animals. Babies too"

Would 34 be better? Or 44? Maybe even 54 - but that's scarily close to your age isn't it? Maybe I should change my nickname to the Loney Bull? What do you think?

I love it. Where's the humour, people?

I liked this one:

Chairperson of the South Carolina chapter of the Young Republicans, and born-again Christian seeks handsome gentleman with similar moral values. I enjoy working tirelessly to destroy the ideals our country was founded upon, legislating my personal religious beliefs, and planning the exile of homosexuals to their own island. I also enjoy a good spanking. You should be a knee-jerk reactionary who likes picketing abortion clinics, and intimidating minority voters.

Ah, forgive me self-confessed middle aged loser. You let the bitter peek out - too bad.
