I typically only date Presidents but I would be willing to lower the bar and make an exception here.
If we went on a date I think I could overcome the fact that you bear an uncanny resemblance to my sister.
Would be great to make you laugh so you become like silly puddy. Then we could press you against a newspaper and make an impression of the newsprint.
If I was a defense attorney, every night when I went to sleep, I'd shout, "The defense rests!"
You got me thinking, am I a man who knows what he's doing in bed? Well, I know I'm reaching over to carve another notch on the bedpost, and sometimes I'm phoning my mates to tell them I've scored again. I'm kidding. These days it's all about text messaging.
NB: I actually did hear back from this gal, and we went on a date. She confessed that all the bedroom talk was just a way to lure men into sending her outrageous responses for a social experiment she is conducting. We are sure to be best of friends.
In response to your essay, I must confess: I am not a reader. It's not that I don't like to read ... I CAN'T read! I never learned how. Sure, I can write, but I can never go back and read what I've written to make corrections. (You may be asking, how did I read your letter? Easy: Helper monkey)

[...] To maintain your reputation as an MBA from a top university, you should correct the typo with "atrractive" in that last paragraph.
P.S. -- You dig sharks, eh? I have an ancient fossilized 4" long shark tooth (that's not a pickup line).

I'm trying to come up with a way to say, "I'm not negative", but that in itself is a double negative.
Do you have a photo to go with that small frame of yours?
In particular, women appear to have a lower expectation that the cartoon will be funny than men. “Women appear to have less expectation of a reward, which in this case was the punch line of the cartoon. So when they got to the joke’s punch line, they were more pleased about it.”
In April 2006, it will be the hundredth anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco quake. In terms of science, it was a great tipping point. Up until that point, the principal human reaction to great catastrophes was to assume it was the work of God. Come 1906, we began to think of it rationally. It was a hinge point leading up to the discovery of seismology.
Shabot6000 creator Ben Baruch discusses how and why he draws a comic strip about an Orthodox man who builds a robot to do work for him on shabbat, only to have his techno-shabbat-goy aspirations frustrated by said robot's conversion to Judaism. Baruch also makes animations using the Shabot6000 cast, and you can hear a couple of bits from Seda Club, a pretty hilarious Passover/50 Cent spoof.
Another Internet cartoonist, William Levin, did a version of the popular rapper 50 Cent singing about the Ten Plagues: "Blood in the river/ back off nigga'/ Don't you f--k with 50 Cent/ I'll pull the trigga'." With more than one million hits, the cartoon, at www.shabot6000.com, was ranked No. 7 in the Top 10 "movers and shakers" on the web this week, according to the web tracking company Alexa (The Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club ranked No. 2).
"There is a growing, almost clich trend of making Jewish culture 'in-your-face' cool by mixing in elements of hip-hop and rap," Levin said. "I was trying to poke fun at that trend a little bit."Read the article here (no longer online at JerusalemPost.com).
Christmas Eve comes with a lot of anticipation for those who celebrate the holiday. But for thousands of Jewish fans of the online comic strip “ShaBot6000,” anticipation took a different form: On December 24, 2004, their favorite cartoon character spoke.Read the article here.
The strip embodies Levin’s mission: an irreverent, funny, yet ultimately respectful examination of Orthodox Judaism. To enhance the humor with a dollop of edification, he concludes each strip with footnotes that lucidly clarify key religious concepts. In just one year of weekly online publication, Shabot and his master have taken on several pillars of Jewish life, from tzedakah to JDate. And it just might take a robot, Levin hopes, to start a serious conversation about Judaism.Read the rest of the article.
