Representing the no-nonsense front of classical wisdom for today's fresh batch of the clueless and valueless.
As an ancient and legendary cynic, I did some impressive grave-spinning when I found out what was passing for relationship advice among today’s hipster-infested youth. But I guess it’s just my nature to be a bit ahead of the curve, and to let the hot, reeking air out of the bubbles forming on people’s moist puddles of steaming bullshit.
A full 2,300-plus years before Joycelyn Elders, I famously quipped – after masturbating in the marketplace – that I wished it were as easy to relieve hunger by rubbing an empty stomach. And I have to say that I’m no more impressed by today’s women than I was by the ones back then, nor by the pathetic excuses for men who cling to them.
Becky seems to think she has a good thing going with this dah idea. Or at least, that having a dah is a better option than a girl “sitting around in a little black dress waiting for the guy to ask her out, wondering if he likes her,” which is how she pitched it to me in a recent conversation.
Well then, in that case, I’d say that Dating & Hookup is just a refined means of pursuing a passive-aggressive non-solution to a problem of passive-aggressivity.
