We’re still on the search for the city’s most cunning linguists…
A year ago, a conversation happened between a few women. If you recall, we missed conversation. Where people – especially men – used words. Not abbreviations. Not emoticons. But real words.
Words are sexy. A man who knows how to use them is dead sexy.
A man who uses “conversate” and “yolo” is not.
If last year proved anything, it’s that there are still a few good men. But, we want more.
So come talk to us. The ladies will vote and one of you will be crowned Toronto’s Most Cunning Linguist. Will Jimmy Smalls return to defend his title? Or will we find a new guy to marinate our minds…?
It is a contest, but the rules are simple:
Sign up (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
Show up at Saviari Tea and Cocktail Lounge (they have tea, and cocktails, and it’s purple and decadent looking…it’s like the inside of my mind)
Show up at 8:30… there will be a VIP area for all participants (the hostess is lovely…see? I hooked you guys up this year)
Get up on stage and…
Talk to us. By doing this, you will assure us women that the art of conversation is not lost. That you, darling boys can engage a woman for about 5 minutes. That’s all. You’d be surprised…it’s harder than it seems. Our judges will give feedback; the ladies of the audience will cast votes. We will then crown the most cunning of all of you linguists and extol the virtues of your silver tongue.
Last year I gave bonus points to the guy who did a scene from North by Northwest…this year, automatic bonus points to a guy who reads an excerpt from a Robert Munsch book.
Can’t wait to hear what you have to say this time…
