Women can’t resist a man singing show tunes. It’s so powerful even a lot of men can’t resist a man singing show tunes.
– Andy Bernard
So, the take-home message her is: If you’re trying to “get the girl”, singing show tunes isn’t quite the best way to go?
This tickled my funny bone because I enjoy theatre; the first half of the quote is an obvious head-scratcher (ever see a pick-up artist start singing show tunes?) but when he got to the second half the joke hit home and I laughed.
I probably find this joke funnier than most people. Trust me, while a lot of people who are in casts together DO end up going out, it’s not the show tunes that does it: It’s the close proximity on an involved team-oriented project.
…Which is a long way of saying that you’re correct, though in certain rare cases it MAY not hurt.
Yes, it’s funny. And even though I am indifferent to theatre, I think I get it.
