What Every Girl Wants: The Hulk

As if it isn't hard enough already, this new "news article" states that all women are really turned on by a guy who is "green" with his car selection. The title of the article is "EcoGeeks get all the girls". Here are some of the highlights.

* Nearly 9 in 10 women (88 percent) say they'd rather chat up someone who owns the latest fuel-efficient car versus the latest sports car.

* Eighty percent of American car buyers would find someone with the latest fuel-efficient car more interesting to talk to at a party than someone with the latest sports car.

* More than 4 out of 10 (45 percent) 18- to 43-year-olds say it's a fashion faux pas nowadays to have a car that's not green or environmentally friendly.

The irony of this whole entire article is that if we lived in different times this would be called something different. Like, being frugal! Any guy who a woman will be attracted to is going to have to show that he cares more about her then he does about material possessions. (At least from my limited experience anyway) As Shania Twain once said: "That Don't Impress Me Much". This article then serves as a great example of how something like wisdom can be bent to propaganda. We all do it but I just thought this was a funny example. Women want the Hulk! Who would have thought?

You know, guys with green skin just don't do it for me...

Good thing I'm not dating anymore :) I've got a gas guzzler. I've also got 5 kids (2 Chattertons, 3 Marshalls) to haul around and every single one of them is in some sort of carseat, so I guess I need the space. Cost me $95 to fill up the other day. Very depressing!

I just find it amusing that someone, somewhere took the time to survey people and actually study the affects of being eco-friendly on dating! Good grief! I'm sure glad that was time well spent.
