Ellie Kemper is writing a new book
with her sister. Sadly, I'm off The Office, but if they can do anything this funny, I'm in. (NSFW)
It's an oldie but goodie--like one of those Cosmo articles gone wrong. It reminds of this great piece from The Onion
, "Maxim Reader Eager To Put Newly Acquired Knowledge Of Women To Use"
"I'm the kind of guy who likes to work all the angles, and no one has more angles for dealing with women than Maxim," Blynn said. "I just read an article on how to land a model by dressing really sloppy so she thinks you're an artist or musician or something. It's genius. I've been taking mental notes for about four months now, and it's almost time to put them into action. This subscription is really going to pay for itself."
While Blynn, who started reading the magazine in January, is currently single, he anticipates his dating status will change when he begins "Project: Laid."
"Until I found out about Maxim, I really didn't understand girls," Blynn said. "Now, I've got an edge. One article suggested I pretend to be gay to get women to let their defenses down. I mean, it's risky and could easily backfire, but if it works, I'll be swimming in it."
Though he has gone on just one date in the past three months, Blynn is confident that his lonely, masturbation-intensive Saturday nights will soon come to an end.
Heh. "Project: Laid."
