3rd November 2000

Say you’re at a costume party trying to hit on a girl dressed as a Girl Scout. You think, “I know, I’ll ask about her cookies! Girl Scouts sell cookies, don’t they? I shall win her with my witty repartee, my sly double entendre.” Unfortunately, your cookie joke is not the first she’s heard. She nods vaguely and lumps you with the forty other Cookie Guys she’s met this evening. Some of the better lines I heard:

  • Pure in word thought, and deed?
  • (From the guy dressed as an environmentalist.) It’s not easy being green.
  • I�ll bet you’re prepared for anything.
  • I don’t have much to offer, but I’m totally willing to be your good deed for tonight.
