OPEN THREAD: As a Former Frequent Practitioner of the Art, I Can Attest that "It's Just Lunch" Lacks the Two Absolutely Essential Elements of a Blind Date:


(1)  Alcohol.

(2)  Darkness.

Good observation on blind dates Plainsman.

I haven't had the time to check out the blog lately, but the Fake Tiger's description of Fuzzy Zoeller's new dish mentioned just now on the Musers was too milk-out-the-nose funny to go unnoticed. Apparently Tiger is excited about Fuzzy's Balls being served at some awards dinner. I'll avoid the details for fear of being labeled "rayciss." but you can probably find it about 120 minutes in on the Unticket tomorrow. I know there are some Gordo detractors here, but I find the guy consistently hilarious and, on average, the best part of the Ticket.

IJL also sets up after-work drinks.

That's Just False Advertising.

Reminds me of the Simpsons' lawyer Lionel Hutz, voiced by the late Phil Hartman, who planned to sue the producers of "The NeverEnding Story" for false advertising.

More likely: It's Just Fat Chicks

Now, now. Your Plainsman was long ago a member of a similar organization, in the pre-Mrs. Plainsman days, and I met some lovely, intelligent, and very nice women.

FYI, IJL is very expensive. It's a service for wealthy people.

Fat chicks are awesome. They are less likely to be stuck up and more likely to "do stuff". Just my two cents. FYI, fat chicks are not gelatinous hutts like Mama June. Those are just gross. And IJL sucks. You'd have the same luck on a chat line.

So if attractive, fit women won't have sex with you it's because they're "stuck up"? Okay

Shaggy, get off the soapbox. I only meant that your odds of scoring are way higher with bigger girls because they're less stuck up than the ones who fit society's guideline for attractive. Just because a chick wont do you don't mean that they're one or the other. But anyways.....

I did Great Expectations for a year. Back in the pre-internet Starck Club/Studebakers/Mistral days. It was also pricey. If IJL is similar, the women don't pay as much to join. I got a few dates out of it I was clearly not what the ladies were looking for.

I can't imagine Gordon schilling for a product he doesn't believe in. It's my hunch that the way he's treated by, and the way in which the program is presented, is VIP'd to the nth degree (obviously it would be), and so he's under the assumption that that's how it goes for everyone.

IJL used to be endorsed by SeaBass, but then that awful thing happened and they switched to Gordon.
