Prince Charming, wherefore art thou? Sleeping Attractiveness, my kiss awaits thee …
The aged bumper sticker goes, “You have to kiss an dreadful lot of toads just before you uncover the handsome prince,” but to be fairly frank, you can find an dreadful lot of folks advertising and marketing on their own as toads! Certainly, advertising and marketing!
The place are these bizarre advertisements? Girls and gentlemen, they are there for the world to see on every online dating web page, and in every printed particular column throughout the land. If I had a pound for every “on line dating profile” (for which examine “advert”), I’ve witnessed that appears to be one thing like this, I might have retired to paradise by now:
