The Lamest Line I’ve Ever Heard

Last night my sister babysat ALL of my kids so that Jeff and I could go out on a date.

Free babysitting?  A night out without 5 little ducklings in tow?  A gift.  Pure and simple.

Jeff and I decided to go to our favorite Indian restaurant.

There was a table right in front of me (it was behind Jeff) with 3 college students; two girls, one boy.  I’m positive they were college students because they were talking loudly about college courses;  using words like “empirical data” and the effect of X factors on ancient civilizations.  I was listening to their discussion with half and ear wondering to myself  how many years after college it would be before their pretensions ended when I heard this line:

“Do you know why I love hanging out with a bunch of girls?”

Of course the girls at the table eagerly awaited his answer, as I’m sure you are.

Don’t worry.  I won’t disappoint you.

Here comes the Lamest Line I’ve Ever Heard in MY Life.

He said, “Hanging out with a bunch of girls makes my GENES happy when I consider all of the progeny I could spread around”.


He did say that.

For real.

The girls simpered for a minute and then told him that he was “so lame”.

But, I swear to you.  They ate that crap up.

    I read that line to my college kid and her response to my question about why would a guy say that to his friends was:

    “They probably aren’t his friends, he just wants to hook up with them.”

    I am too old for this. I’m just glad my daughter is too smart to fall for something that ridiculous.

    I don’t know what’s worse: their pretentious conversation (no one
    voluntarily discusses that stuff) or the “line.”

    Were you kind of embarassed for him? Did you get “douche chills” as we like
    to call them?

    I dunno what’s lamer…that he said such swill, or that those girls ate it up. It would’ve taken every ounce of restraint I have to prance over to those girls and say, “Ladies, PLEASE…let me school you…”

    And then there’d be the requisite head roll, eye roll, and finger snap. Of course.
