It's embarrassing, but despite knowing about it for years, I have yet to read They Call Me Naughty Lola, which is a collection of (present-day) personal ads from the London Review of Books. Having not read the book, I can't vouch for every last one, but the ones I've seen are fuunn-nny. In any event, the author has just come out with a sequel: Sexually, I'm More of a Switzerland, and the New York Times piece I just linked to has some hilarious samples.
It's nice to know there's a market for this sort of thing, since I intend to publish a book like this myself. So go make this other guy a bestseller so that when I go to plug myself I can have proof that people will buy my book too.
(Hat tip to SB.)
