    We are sooooo fallen.

  2. myrealitie says:

    That was pretty hilarious though.

  3. greyghost says:

    Looks like somebody over there has got an understanding of what is going on

  4. bluntobj says:

    I’m glad I had the office door closed; I could barely contain the laughter! I’ll be grinning about that all the rest of the afternoon.

  5. apollohaan says:

    That was hilarious. I love how no matter how well it works, they guy keeps arguing with his tutor. That’s real life right there

  6. earl says:

    That is both funny and tragic at the same time. A good comedy there.

  7. A Visitor says:

    I was laughing, good stuff.

  8. A Visitor says:

    That was hilarious! Thanks!

  9. theasdgamer says:

    LOL. Thank you, Private Man. Vid is spot on. I got called queer twice by a woman I know for not being forward enough. Young women today want ACTION! [sigh] Now I have to discipline her by withdrawing attention when she misbehaves. (No, TFH, she would be happy if I spanked her.)

    That video never gets old – a classic in more ways than one.

  12. embracing reality says:

    “But there, where I have garnered up my heart,
    Where either I must live or bear no life;
    The fountain from the which my current runs
    Or else dries up: to be discarded thence,
    Or keep it as a cistern for foul toads
    To knot and gender in.”

    And again, I think of Rollo’s latest message, FI/Hypergamy is coming full out of the closet (now if we could only get Tom Cruise to come out).

  15. oblivion says:

    that was funny

  16. Bwahaha that was great.

  17. JDG says:

    He’s not likely to “win this women’s heart”, but he might catch something he wasn’t counting on.

  18. Boxer says:

    That was really funny! Unfortunately, it’s also a sad and realistic commentary on what passes for courtship these days.

  19. Lyn87 says:

    Most of the best comedy starts with something true/plausible but uncomfortable, then amplifies it for effect. That’s why the video is so funny. In my pre- red pill days I was a bit like the “Poem Guy” in the clip – I actually thought that most women were attracted to men who treated them with deference, kindness, and respect all the time.

    I still marvel at how naive I was.

  20. theasdgamer says:

    @ TFH

    ME: No, TFH, she would be happy if I spanked her.

    er… what?

    I do not recall discussing this subject here before

    Just a joke, buddy. You’re correct, we haven’t discussed my problem “child”. Been doing that over at Roissy’s. I figured you’d have something humorous to say.

  21. Opus says:

    Perceptive and also (I am surprised Boxer has not pointed this out) despite it being one hundred and fifty years since Marx, an indication of the continuing gap between the English middle and working classes – notice the entirely different vocabulary and accent – and also notice a fine example of the most typical English house – a ‘thirties-semi’ – with improved porch – yes that is what TFH might have had to live in had Mr and Mrs TFH senior preferred Baseball to Cricket.

    That girl, trust me, does anal on the first date.

  22. HawkandRock says:

    “Now that I’ve talked to [understood] Debbie [the modern Western woman], I’m not sure if I really like her that much.”

    Exactly.

  23. Thanks for the mention. I surf the Internet for the good stuff so my readers don’t have to!

  24. earl says:

    “That girl, trust me, does anal on the first date.”

    I don’t care what genders are involved…if someone does that, they engaged in sodomy.

  25. Opus says:

    Although – seeing that we write and speak the same language – the sketch is sufficiently clear to Americans so as to be funny, I do wonder whether some of the following expressions need explanation and whether one can imagine an American usage of the following expressions and with the same meaning:

    whatever
    oy, debbie
    eastenders
    such a bitch
    telly
    are you bloody coming out
    great new play on at the national
    are you queer or something
    x-factor live tour
    I beg your pardon
    dirty girl
    oi, you cheeky bastard
    ugly cow
    such a cheeky git
    mini-cab
    gormless bastard
    naughty boy

    Hypergamy at it’s best: Married three times, “fiancée” of Governor of Oregon (who refers to herself as “First Lady”), admits to Green Card marriage, for 5k.

    @ Opus

    whatever – Boring
    oy, Debbie –Hey Debbie
    eastenders — East End of London; lower class
    such a bitch — unapproachable
    telly — vision
    are you bloody coming out — emphatic: Are you up for hanging around?
    great new play on at the national — theater
    are you queer or something — are you a super-boring wanking loser social retard
    x-factor live tour — talent-discovery tour
    I beg your pardon — what? I can’t believe you said that.
    dirty girl — ovulating
    oi, you cheeky bastard — hawt guy
    ugly cow — you’re fat
    such a cheeky git — forward fellow
    mini-cab — taxi
    gormless bastard — funny guy
    naughty boy — fun guy

  28. Opus says:

    @ASDGamer

    That is excellent, although the better answer to Eastenders would be soap opera and dirty girl is the equivalent of your nasty. Queer really does mean Homosexual and gormless is more slow-on-the-uptake. I do not think the word Git or the term Mini-Cab [i.e. not a Hackney Cab] has ever crossed the Atlantic.

    @Dalrock

    Great Post!…..Hilarious!

  30. Bluepillprofessor says:

    Nice guys like Mr. Poetry really think that is sexually attractive to women and they maintain that attitude to the point of arguing even as they are shown that asshole game works almost immediately. Can anybody explain that? Is the social conditioning that strong? Why doesn’t everybody watch what they do instead of what they say?

  31. Krul says:

    Very funny.

    I like the part where the guy says “Now I’ve talked to her, I’m not sure that I really like her that much.”

  32. D_Johnny says:

    Funny, and it makes me optimistic. The red pill is becoming more mainstream.

    Because he likes who he is. He likes being a cultured, nice guy. He just doesn’t like the fact that it doesn’t get him women. Thus, it leads to a psychological conflict. The Roissy crowd misses this point and just assumes that everyone is OK with giving up their culture and becoming a degenerate. They think that the only reason someone wouldn’t want to act like a degenerate is because they “don’t have the balls” to do it.

  34. sconzey says:

    There’s definitely classist aspects to this. There’s a reason the girl’s portrayed as a chav (for the yanks: ‘white trash’). The same skit would be just as funny, and just as true, if it were a middle class career girl with a liberal arts degree, but that would be a little too close to home for Mitchell and Webb’s audience.

    They are two very funny guys. If you like the kind of dry slightly awkward British humor, definitely check out their sitcom ‘Peep Show’, and this is my favourite sketch:
