Step right up! Step right up! And in this ring...

One in what appears like it will be a continuing series featuring the HIGH-LAR-Y-US correspondence resulting from the Barnum and Bailey world of online dating...

"I am from Saskatchewan* and I would like to meet a Newfoundland woman**, one who I can share my life with. I amrecently (sic) divorced*** and would like to meet that special someone I can share my life with****. If you are interested email me at I am not into head games or lying*****.

*4,500 km from here (approx.) Somewhat of a daunting commute, n'est çe pas? Has he frightened away all dating prospects in his own province and the six provinces between?

**a "Newfoundland woman?" What the heck does that mean? Are we different somehow? Does he think I would be good at starting fires with just two sticks? Able to skin a rabbit with my bare teeth?

***= emotionally unstable

****I'm unsure of your goal. The sharing of the life. Would that be a priority for you? And just how special would I have to be? Would a lifetime pass on the short bus be required?

***** This statement always reads as, "I am psychotically deceitful and will emotionally torture you relentlessly." Those of us who really are NOT into head games and lying NEVER feel the need to state it outright.

Du måste finnas

Okay, I know I'm a music geek and all, but this... this is, like, WOW! right?

Also, how freaky is it that some Swedish words bear some resemblance, or sound like they have the same root word, to the same word in English?
