Hahahaha!!! Genius!

5 Jan

I will preach to the death that I am not a fan of form letters online..  but if you are CLEVER with them-  I am all for them.    If you are a guy who finds a way to prompt a response from people in a clever fashion:  I am a fan.

I knew the message I received was a form letter – because, well… obviously..  and also because while I was looking for people to follow my Twitter account, a girl had mentioned this exact message in a tweet.

“So, obviously you passed the aesthetics test or shallow men (such as myself) would never contact you, but a buddy of mine was looking over my shoulder and claimed that – without a doubt – your profile looked to have been written by a guy; it’s just too perfect, minus the incompletion. He claimed that any account with so little information is a dead giveaway. I came to your defense, of course, but now we’ve got a $20 bet going as to whether or not you’re real. So I wondered, just between us, am I about to lose $20?”

This guy is a GENIUS!   He is playing up the fact that guys get messages from spam bots… saying that “a friend”  is dissing her, and then “standing up” for her. I am not being sarcastic –  I think he is outrageously clever.   I mean, and honestly,  if a girl really believes that message…  there’s other issues there.  Seriously.. that is hilarious.     I wrote back:

“Haha!  I heard about you..”     Because I did.. through the twitterverse.

I asked him if he gets a high rate of response with that message- and he said yes, indeed he does.   …And that does NOT surprise me.

Kudos…  just kudos..
