An unusual way to get a date

By johnboy - 17 November 2008 49

A reader has sent this one in, as seen in the window of Guess in the Canberra Centre.

Ladies, does this appeal to any of you?

Are you ready to “apply in store”?

Head?! Gracious! I don’t think so ….

*hyuk hyuk*

I’m guessing there’s a reason he didn’t say anything about the head.

Granny 10:40 am 17 Nov 08

Knowing my luck he will be some mass murderer serial killer stalker type, and this is how he lures his victims. Better take my umbrella.

Granny 10:37 am 17 Nov 08

Ok, I will try and get into the Canberra Centre on Wednesday. Gosh! I feel a bit intrepid now.


I wonder if he will want me to pay him!

Skidbladnir 10:35 am 17 Nov 08

Go on, and see if we can get a photo.

He’s already attracted internet gossip, maybe we can hype him into this season’s “must-have” arm-candy…

Granny 10:06 am 17 Nov 08

We have just assumed obviously ….

Do you want me to go and find out?


Skidbladnir 10:00 am 17 Nov 08

IS Robbie even male, or have we all just assumed?
What if Robbie is bi, open-minded, or curious?
Also, did Robbie even write this, or was it done for him (and so has no idea why everyone is coming into the store to talk to him)?

If he is desperate I will take him dancing, but only if he’s gay.


Skidbladnir 9:40 am 17 Nov 08

Well, it says Robbie likes -all- kinds of women, but doesn’t say “only ladies need apply in store”.
So men, go hit on Robbie. This looks like the action of a desperate man, so he might be up for it.

Bah, Tucker Max did that years ago with a web page, and his jokes (real life stories of debauchery) are always funny.

Granny 9:37 am 17 Nov 08

Well, he certainly has initiative.

– Romantic phases

How can you go past that?

futto 9:34 am 17 Nov 08

Isn’t this how the sitcom Will and Grace started?

dexi 9:34 am 17 Nov 08

Don’t worry girls, Robbie has got to be Gay.

Granny 9:25 am 17 Nov 08

Er … no.
