Today I heard this over an online radio channel and thought it was funny and correct at the same time…
Alan shows up in a dinner gathering with his new girlfriend. His friend Bob scrutinizes his girlfriend and then asked a stupid question.
Bob: Hey, I thought you only like pretty girls. How come your new girlfriend is… you know… ?
What would be the correct answer for Alan? Is it:
A) No, who said I only like pretty girls? I’m not that shallow!
or is it:
B) Pretty is subjective. What might be pretty for me might not be pretty for you.
or is it:
C) I’m not handsome or rich myself, better to find someone who is not pretty, less stressful.
Which one would it be?
The correct answer is:
D) None of the above!
Answering either of the three would imply that Alan thinks his new girlfriend is not pretty (political correct way of saying ugly) and would invite either a slap or a break up or worse, murder.
In this case, Alan has to be firm and say: “What? My girlfriend is the prettiest girl in the world!”
Enjoy your weekend 😉 .
