A few (couple) of nights ago, I posted something on Twitter. It was a line stolen from something I had read from Scandalous Housewife's blog. There were a couple of reviews of the show called "The Cougar", which is a reality based "dating" show where the "cougar" is the older, more experienced partner (typically a female) looking for a many years younger male partner for fun and games.
I have no problems with that set up, but the show seemed contrived and ridiculous - and we all know it totally is all that, but I also know that people will watch that crap and be seriously emotionally invested in it, too.
So, when the Scandies posted updates of the show, I was thrilled. I didn't have to watch it, but I could get a play by play in a snarky way and still experience the shame, humiliation and degrading without having to actually be a party to watching! Excellent!
As we all know, these "reality" dating shows are a hoot. But, in the opening sequence of this one, one of the "contestants" greets the "cougar" with :
"I want to give you an Australian Kiss." She questioned that. He leaned in and told her it's like a French kiss, but down under. Then he winked at her.
I like that. If I weren't so busy laughing.
So, I posted something similar on Twitter only I said, "I think the Evil Twin needs to give me the Australian Kiss - Like French kiss, only down under". I was totally joking.
You WOULD NOT believe the responses I had.
People need to get a sense of humor. I don't think anyone sells them, but to me, that one statement is comedy GOLD.
When I told the Evil Twin about it, he laughed for a full minute or so and then, referenced it through the evening as being hysterical.
And now, what the title is about:
