  1. This seems to be sort of tongue-in-cheek. Very amusing.

  2. Match maker match maker make me a match... November 28, 2018

    Could go to Mexico/US border, or hang out at the air Qatar terminal. Seems like pretty low hanging fruit to me.

    • Just hang around in your basement. Dangling from the plumbing.

      Hold on there sparky, I think MatchMaker was helping you out. Comic was obviously focused on white women of the 50’s and their difficulties finding husbands. Well, it’s post 2k and don’t need any of that. It’s the age of convenience. “Low hanging fruit” means it’s easy now in Amerikan. So now hot white women … https://bit.ly/2BFRccT can go pick up a husband no fuss no muss. Think easy button.

    • So you are forever alone, Bob? So sad.

  3. I was all for the bra burning phase until I realized looking down all the time was making me walk into objects above waist high.

  4. Nice “How to be creepy and look desperate guide”
