A Sleepy Panda

Submitted by Frank:

I met Gina online. For our date, we met up at a small pub. We both ordered and made chit-chat. I asked her what she did with her life and she said, "Nothing."

I pushed a bit harder. "Are you a student or do you work or what?"

"I don't know. I just sort of hang out in the house... I go out sometimes, like to concerts."

Okay, so what's a little apathy?

Or a lot. After dinner, I asked her what she wanted to do. Coffee? Bowling? Blood wrestling?

She said, "I don't know. I'm kind of tired. Do you like pandas?"

I do, but was a strange thing to ask. She went on, "Because I thought that I'd go to work, you know, for one of those save the panda charities. How would I get a job there?"

"You got me.  Call them and ask them if they have any openings?"

We were having this conversation while walking, and then she sat down on a bench. She said, "Man, I'm tired. So tell me more about it?"

"About what? Panda charities?"


She stretched out on the bench and made as if to sleep, right there. I asked her what she was doing.

"Taking a rest."

She nodded off. I couldn't believe it. I gently shook her and she said, "Do you know how I can join up one of those panda things?"

I told her that I didn't. She rolled over and said, "Good night, then." it was seven in the evening.

Eventually, I convinced her to head home. It was one of the weirdest things I've ever experienced.


  1. You should have told her that you had a panda charity in your pants.

  2. The typo in the last paragraph makes me think Frank didn't really have a date.

  3. Had she been smoking a funny cigarette?

  4. Yeah... sounds like she was on something...

  5. Are you sure you didn't put something funny in her drink? O_O

  6. LOL!!! panda charity in your pants!!

  7. I'm pretty sure she was rocking the gonga.

  8. hehe @ JMG.

    Sounds like a fun date.

  9. Hey,,, seriously... does anyone know how to work for those charity panda places?

  10. For example: http://www.pandasinternational.org/volunteer.html

  11. The pandas will thank you one day.

  12. Go watch the movie SMILEY FACE. It will explain everything about this chick.

  13. This is for sure my favourite post. I laughed so hard I cried a little because it's just all so absurd.
