That approach seemed to work for Javier Bardem's character in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

I have gotten the strangest responses ever on okcupid, including a guy who ended his email with "*poof*"

WTF does *poof* mean?!

That girl's blog is hilarious!

Read the I-am-your-nemesis, so let's meet and battle for the fate of the universe come-on letter.

Paul, I know you're out of play , but please, please, please write a personal ad for OK Cupid-like site, just to publish here. Your brain delights and I would positively swoon at the thought of a Paul Constant personal ad.

@3, *poof* refers to disappearing in a cloud of smoke. He's a huge dork and you're better off not answering.

At least the guy at UW with the fox ears and the tail was a reasonable writer.

Emoticon + awkward come-on + "Humorous" reference to assault with a deadly weapon = disturbingly insensitive to social mores.

15 words and a smiley face can convey a lot of helpful information.

OKCupid is free, isn't it? This is definitely a case of getting what you pay for.

"The hammer is my penis."

"The hammer is my microscopically small penis".

"Poof" to me sounds more like "I am a huge flaming poof" which is not something boys want to be telling girls they're propositioning.

I have to recommend OK Cupid, and am living with the bf I got on that site, since a year ago today, am happy etc. What can I say? The thing is, I started out in a tiny town in AK, and did not get a lot of letters, but I liked this one guy's profile and started as penpals with him, and it went from there. That's maybe a better system, gals - don't wait for some guy who likes your picture, just trawl for the fellas yourself, and write THEM.

@10, I think I love you! The status is not quo!

I really want a t-shirt that says
"The Hammer Is My Penis"
