I know what you are thinking: is the economy so bad that bars are desperate enough to let eighth graders in?
Nope. GROWN UPS are the newest wave of Silly Band converts.
A 32-year-old man shared his own experience: "I went on a date with a girl. She gave me one. Two days later, another girl gave me another Silly Band. I felt important."
I hate to break it to you, dude, but you're only special if you get a fun one. Like an ostrich or Batman.
The very same 32-year-old now keeps a growing collection on his arms. Because they are "a great conversation starter."
I'm telling you, this is what is wrong with the world, people. We are talking about Silly Bandz instead of more important things, like the oil spill and how Kings of Leon stopped making good music after winning a Grammy.
One female interviewee, age 27, tells it like it is. "The coolest part is trading them. It doesn't have your name on it. People can't track you down."
In way, it makes sense. Giving a guy one rubber bracelet from a pack that cost you $1.50 is a much more economical than buying him a pitcher of beer to notice you.
But seriously, if a guy gave me a super hero Silly Band he might just get my number. Well, OK, it would probably be a fake number, but it would be better than nothing, right?
What say you? Are Silly Bandz an effective means of flirtation persuasion?
