      Why do I need hot tips for dating women when I have you? With a woman like you, all others pale in comparison!

      Terribly saddened to hear about Earnest, he was a special person that I enjoyed chatting with and was intriqued by his writing. He will be sorely missed!

      Never quite figured out his banana fetish! It was quite humorous though!
