I had a blind date last night, but before it, I was worried what to do if she was really unattractive. My friend told me not to worry as there’s an app for just that situation. It’s called ‘Mom Are You Okay’ and it schedules your phone to ring just after you meet your date:

If you like her, you just ignore your phone. If you want to cut short the date, you answer with. “Mom, what’s the matter, are you okay?”

It works every time, no worries.

So anyway, I knocked on the girl’s door, and it turns out I needn’t have worried at all. She was absolutely gorgeous and stunning.

But just when I was about to speak to her, her phone rang. She answered it and said, “Mom, what’s the matter, are you okay?

By replacing your morning coffee with green tea, you can lose up to 87% of what little joy you still have left in your life.

I wouldn’t do anything for a Klondike bar, but I’d do some sketchy shit for some whiskey and bacon.
