The Whore of Mensa?
Back in the olden days when Woody Alan was funny, way before his incestuous marriage, the published a story called The Whore of Mensa, which premise was an escort service of high-IQ women.
Well, it looks like someone on campus’s got a business plan:
An online advertisement that offered Princeton University students male escorts — and solicited female students to apply for a position — was a joke, but the ad’s author insists the business model is sound.
A business that catered to the community at large likely would be profitable, said Edward Shin, the univrsity senior who created the ad.
On March 8, Mr. Shin posted the dating service ad on a new student auction Web site called TigerTrade. TigerTrade, which opened Feb. 28, can only be accessed by students of the university and matches sellers to buyers through a bidding system similar to that used by eBay.
The ad — which was marred by several misspelled words — read, “Our gentlemen, over six feet tall and in excellent physical shape, are willing to offer you companionship. Whether the occassion is a formal, a movie, or a shopping trip, we can accomodate.”
Apparently only tall guys were available. What happened to the short guys?
As a side comment, may I mention that the Mayflower Madam has relatives in town?
