The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Greatest pickup line ever

Oddly enough, it showed up in the Mayor's State of the City Address:

A friend of mine was recently sitting in a restaurant and noticed a woman kept staring at him. Every time he glanced in that direction, she was staring at him.

After this continued for several minutes he finally went over and approached the woman. He said, "I couldn't help but notice that you keep staring at me."

The woman blushed and said "I'm sorry, but you look just like my third husband."

The man was a little flustered and all he could mutter in return was, "How many times have you been married?"

The woman said, "Twice."

I'd be flustered. Flummoxed. Flabbergasted, even.

I would have preferred "you look like my first husband"
"how many times have you been married?"
"I've never been married"

Yeow-zah!!

Man, there's gotta be some way to work that to connect Mayor McOoze's probable Congressional run following hard on the heels of his mayoral campaign, but I can't force myself to picture that cheesy grin long enough to make it work.

"You look just like my future ex-husband" would probably be going too far ;)
