As a teen in the 70’s, I’m ashamed to admit I watched Match Game on CBS. It was on after Luke and Laura of General Hospital fame- but that’s another story.

Gene Rayburn hosted this feast of double entendres where Charles Nelson Riley, MG’s version of Paul Lynde on Hollywood Squares- even more effeminate, was asked to come up with phrases that answered things like ‘_____ Me!’.


A widowed friend of mine subscribes to Match.com. I get a kick out of reading what women want in a mate. They have a laundry list of the typical walks on the beaches, quiet dinners with fine wine and are seeking non-smoking, social drinkers who like to shop over watching the Patriots. Bottom line is, no matter what they say, women want a good looking guy who makes money. Lots of money. Looking like an older version of a Jonas Brother doesn’t hurt, but give ‘em an Amex with no credit limit and the eyes can be trained to refocus.

“Ladies, look at it this way- if he makes enough, you can rent me”
