Can They Get You An Imagination?
Finally, the service for the man who has more money than creativity (admittedly a significant percentage of us): ScoreBrowniePoints.com (motto: “Give Some. Get Some”) ships you a frou-frou gift every other month that you can wrap up and give to the special woman in your life, so that she’ll think you took the time to think about her and buy her something special. But you didn’t! Ha ha! And since we all know women are suckers for frou-frou gifts, they will tumble into bed with you as soon as they see how “thoughtful” you are. (This isn’t a business plan, it’s an issue of Maxim.)
Yes, it’s as bad as it sounds. Go see for yourself.
UPDATE: Well, whaddaya know — Jodie Gaston, the proprietor of ScoreBrowniePoints.com, saw this story and AIMed me to ask if I thought it was really as bad as all that. I suppose I don’t — I mean, she certainly has identified a real market niche (i.e. lazy, thoughtless males), and her site is very well targeted at that niche, so it’s a better idea than, say, pets.com was. It’s not for me — in the relationships I’ve been in I’ve actually enjoyed thinking about nice things to do for my SO (perish the thought!) — but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good idea. Jodie seems nice enough, so here’s hoping she enjoys her 15 minutes of fame, and that the site finds its audience… assuming they’re smart enough to find the power button on their computers, that is 🙂
