One of my favorite pastimes lately is scrolling through the ads littering my Facebook feed. A majority of them are for author pages or books…and every now and then I stumble upon some real gems. Ahem *dramatically clears throat* Allow me to exhibit example A:

I don’t know why I laughed out loud at this ad? Was it because of the sheer ridiculousness of these three statements and the arrogance laced within them? Or was it my horror manifesting itself in the form of a nervous laugh? Don’t get me wrong, alpha male types can be very sexy but this…this…it’s like, dude, just get some freaking manners. You can’t just force a ring or child on somebody. Tag lines like this don’t reel me in even in a millimetre. Eugh.
