Vikings, Sponge Balls, Pizza, FUN! (But No Fatties.)

Every once in a while, you’ll find a sparkling diamond of truth in the most unexpected of places, like an ’80s dating video montage, for instance:

Via Gala Darling, xox.

Check out the silver fox with a poetic streak at 1:28: “Who so binds to himself a joy, doth its winged life destroy.” Poignant and all-too-often true, no? Love will die if held too tightly, love will fly if held to lightly, and pal, love will most definitely elude you if you insist on bringing up that sponge ball incident EVER AGAIN.

    When you and Nadya get in a Terror-Off, you know it’s only us kids who get hurt, right?

    Does anyone know the source of “Who so binds to himself a joy, doth its winged life destroy”? It sounds like it was cribbed from William Blake’s “The Sick Rose.”

    I can’t help but wonder whatever happened to the guy who said “Hi Mom.”

    Still I to like to have fun…and dress as a viking.

    Are you that special person who really doesn’t like fun?
    Please call me, I’m definitely your man.

    I am most afraid that I saw this video first on today’s Ellen show. The Goddess?

    That doesn’t surprise me, actually! Ellen rocks!

    With the internet, people have the freedom to lie about their identities, drone on about their likes and dislikes, tout ridiculously high standards in what they look for in a mate, present false impressions of themselves, and demand respect while dressing like vikings, all from the comfort of their homes.

    In the 80s, you actually had to leave the house and pay someone else to do all that for you. THE FUTURE IS AWESOME!

    Is it wrong I am kind of interested in the guy cleaning up Toxic Waste? It’s a good job.

    Yes! I’ve been searching for a senior citizen with a 25-year subscription to Playboy! Fella’s got class!
