Coupla Bros Seek CL Wedding Dates

February 20, 2013

As reported in New York Magazine:


Dave and Mike had a problem: The bros (in every sense of the word) have been told that they must bring dates to their cousin’s upcoming wedding in order to prevent them from “harassing” the bride’s friends all night.

Asked how their family is going to react to the stunt, one brother [said]: “Out of boredom I tried to convince my dad at Christmas that I’d gone gay now because the lifestyle just suits me better. He was very confused and extremely unamused. I’d imagine he’ll have the same response to this once we just keep repeating, ‘We’ve gone viral, pop.'”

As reported in Time Out Chicago, check out the pigs in these digs:


Franklin, the oldest, will bully you—they are herd animals and while I am ultimately alpha, he feels the need to climb the hierarchy. If you live here, logically you are in his herd, therefore he will challenge you every so often to establish who is where in the hierarchy. He can also be very sweet and cuddle with you on the couch while you watch your favorite show.

In a throwback to the roaring 20s, Maneesh Sethi recruited a slapper off CL to give him a hand in staying on task, and saw his productivity quadrupule.

Said Sethi, “How could I leverage Craigslist to improve my efficiency. To me, the answer was obvious: I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face everytime I used Facebook.”

For a mere $8/hr, can you afford not join him in this arms race?
