I’m in your city killing your dudes

We’ve all seen ads on the web that change depending on where they think you are: “Hot Montreal girls that want to fuck you now” or even “Hot Stittsville girls.” I’ve never even been to Stittsville. Maybe I should go – apparently the girls are just as attractive as the girls here, and probably more desperate.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who I am. I’ve been trying to figure that out for years. Fine, I can click your little checkboxes, but don’t confuse them with who I am.

That is all.

A couple of things I’ve promised to send people over the past few days:

For those of you who love Craigslist, here’s a disturbingly accurate parody.

Also, mainly for auzure_skies and jbailey, here’s what happens when you have a world famous violinist play anonymously in a busy subway station, and here’s some of the response.
