Ok, so I find myself newly single and on the internet (I was out of absynthe) and found myself looking at personal ads on a Shanghai advertising website. It’s a depressing read, it’s all M31 WLTM F18-21 170cm, GSOH, loves sports … … presumably these people write their ads in SMS on ancient mobile phones and write LOL at the end of every message.
Anyway, I ended up posting this nonsense:
“Chronic insomniac seeks very boring girl for nights of passionless sleep.
- Frustrated pillow punching
- Panda eyes
- Caffeine abuse
- Nodding off in the pub
- Uninspiring looks
- Monotonous voice
- Excruciatingly dull
- Dreadful saggy pyjamas with faded cartoon prints of puppies
- Endless mindnumbing prattle about imagined human emotions of your neighbours’ cat
Email me and tell me about the shoes you saw in the sale at Hotwind to start me nodding off”
I got a total of 8 replies which I reckon is pretty good (mind you, some of those were from guys telling me they thought my ad was funny), one of the girls who replied told me she’d got a total of 65 replies to her uninspiring ad, so you see, guys are wasting their time advertising really. Mind you, I reckon at least 63 of the replies she got were from guys asking to smell her underwear or look at pictures of themselves debasing themselves (if the replies I got are anything to judge by).
Anyway, that’s when I figured this writing thing could be fun, well, not fun but maybe it’s an excuse not to spend every available 5 minutes in the pub.
Mind you, I could always take my laptop to Big Bamboo, they’ve got HiFi interweb access, or something.
Ok, as requested by Mr Swiss here are the replies:
- Hi, great ad!
- ok, you win – this is the best ad i’ve seen in my life!
- Hello, I will give you something to maek you slepp!!
- honey you don’t need nodding off you need waking up – don’t do passionless – but do, do passionate – hope your text was a ploy and a play with words, rather than the real deal – good luck if it is!
- dude you might just be the most hilarious person who’s ad i’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. sorry about your insomnia
