"Hitching a Ride With Larry David."

By Paul Samuel Dolman. Excerpt:
P.D.: What brings you the most satisfaction?
L.D.: That’s a tough one … I guess it’s when I discover a really great idea and start developing it.
P.D.: That’s number one?
L.D.: And making a woman laugh. What is that about? And the prettier the woman, the more satisfaction I get. It doesn’t make any sense, but I’m being honest.

After a year, the woman who laughed will say that there has to be more to our relationship than jokes.

Laughing, smiling makes everybody look better.

But not everybody has that good a smile or laugh.

I would imagine saying it's better if she's good looking is something of a misnomer. I don't think it's a one-size-fits-all, some not-so-good looking people might end up looking a bit better than the fashion plate.

If you can get her laugh you're gold.

David said...

Depends of what she's laughing at.

So is Laurie still laughing all the way to the bank?

Unknown said...

Beta male?

Gamma male?

Delta male?

How far does it go?

How does that *not* make sense?

Of that there is no doubt. Larry isn't the first guy to be led astray in to a financial slaughterhouse by an epic blow-job.

Spoken like an alpha male wannabe.

To make a beautiful woman truly laugh is an alpha make talent.



Jimmy said...

Of course that would be "alpha male talent."

Touch typing not an alpha male skill!

After he makes 'em laugh, "Well that's it, I've shot me bolt," and gives 'em a cigar.

Some women sound like crows when they laugh. Koreans say that of all the sounds of a crow, none of them are music.

@Meade, I hope you grabbed the opportunity to tell the Professor that Larry David would have the thrill of a lifetime at a giggle from her.

Yeah, it's over the top. But she'll like it. Trust me.

Omega male, duh.

How does that *not* make sense?

Yeah, I wondered about that, too.

Saint Croix said...

Making a pretty woman laugh is just like giving her an orgasm. Same vibe. You're in control, she's out of control, helpless with laughter. Or orgasm, either way.

Saint Croix said...

The French call orgasm the little death.

Comics say, "you killed them!"

A thumb goes up, a car goes by, it's nearly won me and the near an my, hitch'n a ri-i-i-i-de, hitch'n a ride. Gotta get me ho-o-o-o-me by the morning light. (this is what makes me such an egg shell ant inter pritter)

OMG I remember one woman I worked with - her laughter was like music. She had a loud laugh but it was so honest and deep, I would almost cry to hear it, it was such a beautiful sound. To me it was the most beautiful sound that ever emanated from that building. I used to plan to make her laugh.

gadfly said...

Where my mind went - Vanity Fair singing:

A thumb goes up, a car goes by
Oh, won't somebody stop and help a guy?
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

It is Easy to get pretty Women to Laugh: everyone Else is to Afraid to Talk to Them.

Lesson #1" Do not start with your Best Line.

Lesson #2" Do not start with your Second-Best Line.

User your Weaker Jokes when She Is Still Deciding to Listen To You.




At That you Now Direct your Third-Best Joke at Her Friend. Get Her to Laugh and Go Off To By Her a Drink.



Buying a Drink for The Friend Invokes Jealousy.

Now Tell the Both of Them that They're Smiles Are Amazing and Alike. Twins, even.


You have Now Slightly Upset Girl One: This Is Good.


betamax3000 said...

Talk to the Girlfriend, while Nodding Knowingly at Target Girl.

When she sips the last of Her Drink Only Then offer to Buy Her a Drink: "Would you Like another Drink, Too?"


She Does NOT want to be Grouped with Her Girlfriend: she wants to Be Separate and Special.


This where you ask: What is your Drink Again?"


betamax3000 said...

When She Tells you Her Drink lean in closer and say: "Again?"


betamax3000 said...

Now Tell Her that Her friend reminds You of a Crush you Had in High School: Sophomore. Just Pointing It Out: Small Talk.

betamax3000 said...

Now ask her How Long has she Known Her Friend? Where did they Meet?



You Shoot at the Target by Shooting to the Side of the Target.



betamax3000 said...

Now Ask Her if She thinks she Looks more like Her Father or Her Mother.


Give Her as Much Time to Answer as Necessary.

betamax3000 said...

If her Parents are still Married she will Say 'Her Mother'. If her Parents are Not Together she will say "Her Father."


Nine out of Ten


betamax3000 said...

At This Point MAKE SURE TO KNOW HER EYE COLOR.

If You Do Not Know it Now It will Harm You Irretrievably in the End.

betamax3000 said...

I did not mean to kill the tread. Sorry.

Lem said...

Laughter is the best afro.

tiger said...

Betamax - all that is bullshite - manipulative and childish.

See you're one of the big problems with the sexes: you can't treat women as people but have to lie to them and try to manipulate and hustle them to get one to find you interesting.

You're obviously not.

You want a woman that is stupid enough not to see what you're doing - fine.

Give me a woman who thinks that guys like you are jerks.

Drago said...

Betamax: "I did not mean to kill the tread. Sorry."

tiger: "See you're one of the big problems with the sexes: you can't treat women as people but have to lie to them and try to manipulate and hustle them to get one to find you interesting."

LOL

tiger, I could be wrong but Betamax, on "paper", comes across as a screenwriter who's conjuring up a scene for an upcoming movie he'd like to get paid to write.

His Scarlet Johansson riffs were hilarious.

I luv Betamax

Chip Ahoy said...

betamax3000 is right, you must notice the color of a woman's eyes, you must. So that you are prepared to put on your accents, and even if not asked to, say absurdly sexually, "Your eyes. They are like two pools. Two deep pools. Two deep dark pools. Two deep dark cesspools of love that draw me in and when I am drawn into your deep dark pooling eyes I see myself in there dancing and being fabulous." And she says she would have settled for "brown." Aaaah kids t'day

Lem said...

I was reluctant to read the "piece" because I thought it was a piece... but then I thought I like LD and Althouse wouldn't put something fake in her blog... (that last part is me faking).

But its a good thing I read the interview because it sounds real even if it isn't. Which is what I think this blog is like for me. This blog is the best set of imaginary real friend I could ever hope to have. It doesn't matter that I don't measure up... its a lot like LD says in the interview. Which is why I'm commenting. The realization that I have what I need, and I pause here because I might sound cornier if that's at all possible, is true. The connection however tenuous and uneven and imperfect is just great.

That's about all I got to hear out of me. for now.

Lem said...

Maybe I should mention that I'm also connecting with like minded people in the flesh but not naked. And just maybe that is what is making the connections here seem more valuable.

If I use the word seem a lot is because I'm not sure and I'm fine with that... and I'm not talking about Obama.

Lem said...

Althouse is my Seinfeld.

If you read the interview, you know what that means.

Lem said...

Betamax killing tread...

Amateurs ;)

I think that "player alphas" are maybe gammas, at best, who have learned a little about gaming evolutionary psychology. If you jokes or lines saved up and ranked, that is pretty pathetic, but if it works for you, great. But if you can make women laugh with your spontaneous wit, you can get in their pants, honest. You don't have to worry about whether you are using your best material on the opening line or not, since each "line" is an organic product of the moment.

If you don't understand that, don't call me a gamma.

betamax3000 said...

Perhaps I should've prefaced the comments with "Larry David Robot" to make the extrapolation more apparent.

Didn't realize I could be still taken at Face Value.

EMD said...

What does Face Value Robot say?

tim in vermont said...

Some of these players on the intertubes are beyond parody, IMHO. My bad for missing it.
