8/31/2005: Personal ad in cornfield



Lurker gmr2048 finds this item. thanks! A farmer in Canandaigua, NY put this personal ad together using corn stalks.

Since this image came out, and since it was submitted, turns out the gent's gotten over 700 responses. But he's only responded to one, it seems like he wasn't that serious about it:
Quote:
One California woman answering DeHond's ad had a pizza delivered to his farmhouse door along with a note that included her first name and phone number.

"That seemed like a nice thing to do," said DeHond, adding that he called to thank her.

Since then, they've exchanged calls and letters.

"A very attractive woman" is how DeHond described his new friend to his hometown newspaper the Daily Messenger of Canandaigua. He added they may eventually arrange to meet.
MAY arrange to meet with a woman who sends you pizza? Brother, if she sends you pizza from thousands of miles away, that means something. Go for it.

It certainly does mean something, it means that woman has some kind of serious mental problems.

We were looking for that field when we rode out there for the MS Tour. We didn't see it. Let's hope that pizza doesn't cost him half a farm.

I thought SWF meant Single White Female?

What the hell does it mean, then?

Or is he asking for a single white female?

Because I was tempted to call.

So many times we've all heard the success stories. "Hooked on phonics worked for me." Well this is the guy the people at Phonics didn't want you to know about. And they thought giving him a tractor would be harmless...

Hi, TalkIsCheap, good to have you here!

I love your sig line!


PS-I think the farmer had a great idea. I'd answer the ad, but I really don't FARM-N. Really, really don't.

First off, thank you for the welcome. Secondly, I'm going to stop numbering my thoughts. How did I find you....um.... how do I describe you? Celler dwellers feels to modest. It creates pictures in my head of sloth fingered, bacon eating, pale, socially regected dwellers that actually inhabit a dark, musty, curiously moist cellar. When in fact, you're an intelligent, strictly regulated group of experienced, well rounded, well informed, topic tackling individuals. Possibly still pale, bacon eaters but I try not to judge. I'm a network administrator in the Marine Corps. I know most people find it difficult to imagine a Marine doing anything with a computer besides blowing it up or melting down its components to make rounds, but yes, we do have deployed networks. More specifically my job is to run the base firewall. Keeping everyone from what they love, which is mostly porn. I'm sure you're framiliar with one of our regularly used troubleshooting systems. Google. High tech right? Well sometimes the best way to stop someone is to know how they work. I typed in "not porn" and this site came up. From what I've read I could have typed in whale penis and got the same results. I was instantly hooked, on the site not the whale. Your posts are intriguing, entertaining, and as I'm discovering, highly addictive. I've never been able to get my required daily intake of narcissism, wit, sarcasm, dry humor, wet humor, bullshit, and brutal honesty in one place before. I'm not going to sit here and lick your assholes all day. If you want praise, call your mother. Or just murder proper grammar in a corn field. That seems to work.
