fuego and I were sitting in a bar this afternoon, plotting our next step in World Domination (mwa-ha-ha-ha), when a drunk woman arrived at the bar and sat next to a guy. Eventually the guy scooted over to get away from her… and landed right next to a pretty woman. They struck up a conversation that went on for at least an hour, filled with smiles. All thanks to the drunk girl.

fuego thought about that for a bit and came up with “rent-a-drunk”. Need a little push to get you closer to that pretty girl? Call rent-a-drunk! It’s a special sort of wing-man who is never connected with you. I took the idea further; there are definite chivalry points to be scored. Want to meet that lovely woman? Rent-a-Drunk will send an asshole her way, and you can stand him down, perhaps at apparent personal risk. Can you say knight in shinig armor?

So now you have a chance to charm the woman of your desires. The thing is, if you use a plan like this, you’re probably a jerk, and if she finds that out you’re sunk. No problem. Any time the conversation gets uncomfortable, with a hand signal the drunk is back, and you can dominate him again.

If everything else fails, at least he can drive you home.

  1. This sounds like the perfect counterpart to the existing, and as far as I know successful, service that allows women to break out of dates — a surreptitious text message on the way to the bathroom, and ten minutes later, the woman receives an “emergency” telephone call with a prearranged situation that she has to take care of immediately.

    The challenge for you is that the rent-a-drunk has to look and smell like a drunk, whereas the pseudo-emergency phone call only has to sound realistic. Your actors are going to require a higher level of pay.

  2. The thing is, I am a jerk (no offense ‘Swede) and I inevitably and eventually will be sunk.

    Brilliant idea Jer, but I don’t see a GPQ aspect here (although it does have half-baked potential) unless you are counting lawsuits.

  3. Oh CA, I plan to employ local “method actors”, of which there are plenty to choose from in the woods that this squirrel habituates.

  4. Well, Jer and I would,of course, have to play a large roll in getting the thing off the ground. Once under way, we would have to find some Local “Method Actors,” which would require a stipend of course, but we could probably find actors who don’t need much…some cheap vodka and a pack of smokes…
