Five guys who NEVER get picked in speed dating

February 17, 2010

Well, Debby, I see all the best guys are already taken once again. I’m starting to think these speed dates are fixed!

loser combo vertical 280You and me both, Daphne! Put your glasses back on and tell me who’s left for us.

I don’t know why I’M always the one who has to put her glasses on. Let’s see. We got a guy in a bowler hat, socks with garters, and boxer shorts…

I’ll pass.

Then we got a guy looks like Pee Wee Herman. He’s wearing….

Pass.

Well, aren’t WE picky tonight! Who are you, Angelina Frickin’ Jolie? Then we got a guy in a jacket with a painting of somebody buck naked, with wings.

Hmmmm. Is there anything strange about the guy?

Half of his face is covered in silver paint, now that you mention it. Uh, then there’s a guy with a sword handle sticking out his mouth.

No, I’m sick of meeting sword swallowers at these things. How about that guy there, who just came in?

Ah, right. The one with his face painted red and green and a ring in his nose who is gnawing on a huge bone, probably human?

COLOMBIAOh. So Daphne, do you think that guy IS Pee Wee Herman, or just LOOKS like him?

“There is no spoon…” Is is possible to block bullets with a spoon? Maybe a titanium one?

Who wants to try!
