Can you think of some really silly things to put in a personals ad?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (30619points) September 28th, 2010

Many newspapers and magazines used to have a place for ads for people to meet one another. The Internet has largely taken over this function, and at least in the gay world, which I am more familiar with, the ads are mostly for one night stands.

Have you seen any that were humorous?

Can you think of some things to put in such ads that would be funny?

I saw one that said, “Garden gnome seeks a man who knows how to use his hose.”

I did not label this NSFW, because I want to keep the humor tongue in cheek. Let’s try to keep this lighthearted.

Let the double entendre commence.

My first thought was “If you like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, if you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain… ” etc. etc. Can you tell it has been a while since I was on the dating scene?

We had a local weekly that had men-seeking-women, women-seeking-men, etc, categories, but the category that I always looked for for entertainment value was “variations”. The best I ever saw was:

SWM, 35, seeks experienced dominatrix, transgendered and/or dwarf preferred. Serious inquiries only.

BABY BIRD / Fed up with watersports? Constrained by traditional dominant- submissive roles? Try a more nurturing role: feed me like a baby pelican! Both sexes welcome. I supply the raw herring, you bring the big strap-on beak. No weirdos.

This whole thread reminds me of a Bloom County series from many years ago that ended with the pengiun shouting “I QUIT!” What was that pengiun’s name?

@hawaii_jake I don’t remember. It seems like he did, but I’m not a reliable source….

@Rufus_T_Firefly : Yep, that’s the silliest one yet.

Rufus_T_Firefly's avatar

@hawaii_jake – Yeah, I probably should have left out the compensation package.

Die hard atheist seeks tryst with fruity theist. If compatible will shake your tree. Adams, Eves, Steves considered for compatibility. If fig leaf lifts, will help you bare it.

You know? If you change “Jesus Of Nazareth” to “Jesus Of Mars,” the New Testament becomes a fairly decent science fiction novel.
