Dufus of the Day Award


Life by Chocolate’s first Dufus of the Day Award goes to the woman who placed the following ad on craigslist, missed connections:

“Good grammar is sexy.”

You came into my workplace wearing a tight grey t-shirt baring the above phrase. I agree completely, and if I wasn't working I would have said something because you were looking so good E. B. White had to have been your granddaddy.

  1. Oh, crap. You've been on CL's Missed Connections haven't you? lol

    CL is the shit. You can find, buy, sell, steal, kill, cheat, and otherwise run your entire life from it.

    No wonder it is the 8th or 9th most visited website in the world.

    The gal who posted that is indeed a dufus, albeit a horny one. lol

  2. Careful, woman, you never know what you might get on there. Could be more than you bargained for. I hope you're just looking for funnies.

  7. Jeremy, it really is (the shit, that is). For a quick and easy - uh - blog post, it's the best, though. Thanks!

    MsA, oh no. Sure, I've made some dufus decisions, but never used CL's Missed Connections except for this blog post.

    GB, yeah. Let's hope grammar and spelling go hand in hand - for his sake.

    ADSL, thanks, hon. Be well!

    Alex, I think they're both better off.

    Stephen and Pat, you're smart men to avoid CL.

    A good, dufus-free day to you all.

  16. I think her hot thoughts got in the way of her grammar. CL is one creepy place for spammers and scammers to hangout. It's woven its nastyy web into India too.

  17. You all make me laugh. Thank you! I'll be making rounds to your blogs asap. For now, I'm off to enjoy my b-day.

  20. Geek, unless it's a bad impression she's trying to make. =) The EB White thing makes it even worse.

    Susan, good one. I suppose she might have a nice personality.

    Ruth, a virtue and a lost art.

    John, and bears can walk into bars, and ... love ya.

    PTM, how I've missed your comments! Someone's really gotta tranquilize your granny.

    Pat, well said. And some are a true embarrassment to the rest of us.

    EmptyNest, I look forward to posting more. Somehow I don't anticipate a shortage of material.

    Rosalind, thanks. I'm glad.

    Betty, they don't get scarier than CL. Not usually, anyway.

    Rek, it's hit your country too? That's a shame. PS Thanks so much for the b-day wishes. It was a great one.

    BabySis, yes. One should pass a written exam before writing anything beyond a private "note to self."

    Unknown, you're very kind. Me, not so much; I blame it on stupidity.
