Reply To Personal Ad

SOLD! to the tall man Image
in the back row
with the ugly brown hat.
I’m here to say:
I liked your ad;
You were the one
“looking for a guy
with teeth,” right?
Seeing that I have some
(teeth, that is), I’ll reply.
I’m dying to know about
the combat sports and
prestructuralist semantics,
not to mention the tattoos.

    1. That’s what I thought. My friend was matched with the woman whose profile inspired this, and thought she seemed “strange.” I said, “I know, right–get in touch with her, even just to see if she’s as cool as she seems.” He wasn’t impressed, the idiot.

      1. I’m sure she found someone who appreciated her originality! Or at least I hope so

    1. This was based on an actual personal column. I must admit I felt a twinge of–not regret, exactly–that I’d never get to meet that girl. She sounded like a hoot, but my single friend who’d actually received the profile wasn’t at all interested.
