Re: is it hard to pick up girls in swiss clubs

Are you guys practicing for the local chase?

I wonder if you are a few centuries off.

In my experience it only appears to be the case that men are the ones doing the chasing. A cursory reading of Shakespeare confirms this:

Quote:
Oh, I am out of breath in this fond chase.
The more my prayer, the lesser is my grace.
Happy is Hermia, wheresoe'er she lies,
For she hath blessèd and attractive eyes.
How came her eyes so bright? Not with salt tears.
If so, my eyes are oftener washed than hers.
No, no, I am as ugly as a bear,
For beasts that meet me run away for fear.

Free training tip for you from a girly: As soon as you start using the "pussy" word, you've basically crashed and burned.
All the women I know use pussy.. but maybe that's just my social group

I never chased, I selected. Chasing is left for the uncultured, gel-hair sporting, Paco Rabanne wearing, leased M3 driver.....get it?

Don't go picking on DodgyKen when he isn't here to defend himself.

Hmmmpf. Yes, definitely outdated. For German speakers here a great example - Carolin kebekus - Pussy Terror:

http://www.tvnow.ch/rtl/carolin-kebe...r/list/aktuell

Apologies for the adverts. For anyone on Zattoo, also available without the ads:

http://zattoo.com/program/rtl/116759...ve-pussyterror

Definitely LOL material on the subject of Pussy Terror, as viewed from a German speaking perspective.

Sweetheart, first of all, it's a loaner. Second of all, I could ride a mule to a club, and ladies would still swarm me, mostly because of my incredible looks, my charm, my wit....and lastly because I'm obnoxious.

I would like to request that Aleydis visit me first. I wouldn't want her to arrive exhausted, collapse in my living room, and risk getting my bretzel in a twist.
I might bring it as a news to you but those bretzels....... Well........ They are already twisted!

I was thinking of writing "my bretzel covered in rubbish from the floor" but that would indicate that I am not a particularly fastidious individual, so I chose a figure of speech.

Yeah, not good to have your bretzel covered in rubbish from the floor when trying to pick up girls in Swiss clubs

Pfffffaaa, Shakespeare...I am singing this tonight:

Quote:
Chramer, gip die varwe mir,
die min wengel roete,
damit ich die jungen man
an ir dank der minnenliebe noete.

Seht mich an,jungen man!
lat mich iu gevallen!

Minnet, tugentliche man,
minnecliche frouwen!
minne tuot iu hoch gemout
unde lat iuch in hohen eren schouwen.
Trap after trap after trap.

Girls?
Clubs?

I was rather looking forward to the idea of a nice lady bringing me beer and buttered bretzel without necessitating my cleaning the floor for a 2nd time this year. You've ruined my evening. I shall now sulk.

From what I understand, it would depend on what kind of rubbish. If white and pure, could potentially make a difference.
