Bet she got asked out. An annoying number of times.

That tactic has fun potential. Imagine some guy holding up a sign that said:

“She didn’t brush her teeth”

“No way, I know where her mouth has been!”

“She’s a smoker!”

“It’s not a cold sore.”

Well yanno, it ain’t a family reunion unless you get to ask your sister for a date…

In sports, a tie game is like kissing your sister.

Hasn’t this guy heard? Leviticus 18 is so passé.

“It’s not a cold sore.”

Your whole list is good, but this one’s the BEST … : )

Still laughing . . . . .

Would be funnier if the sign said “Used to be a man!”

Funny, but suicidal.

Fenris on February 18, 2014 at 11:11 AM

Well played, sir.

CurtZHP on February 18, 2014 at 11:12 AM

Didn’t pretty much the same thing happen with the Obamas back in 2012?

What would be wrong with her having formerly been a man? Only homophobecisgenderfascists refuse to make out with post-op trannies.

I wonder if he had two of them folded together with opposite arrows, and he had to figure out upside-down which one pointed the right way.

homophobecisgenderfascists

HGF or HPGF Syndrome? Whatever, I have it…

Kraken on February 18, 2014 at 11:37 AM

funny, but staged. Who takes a pre-printed sign like that just in case?

rogaineguy on February 18, 2014 at 11:42 AM

The interesting thought is: why did the “kiss cam” focus on them? What were they doing before the cam decided they had some potential? Hmmmmm? Does that put a new spin on the sign? Not sayin’, just askin’………

If you have to refer to them as “post-op trannies” then the surgeon must not have been that good.

Nutstuyu on February 18, 2014 at 12:25 PM

That was thinking ahead. But you can read lips when the girl says “he’s my brother!”

tj4osu on February 18, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Thank goodness that wasn’t in some of the more rural, less civilized areas of the country where the response to the sign would have been, “So?”

OrbeaRider66 on February 18, 2014 at 12:34 PM

That was pretty funny. Well played, indeed.

RI_Red on February 18, 2014 at 12:43 PM

Is she gophergirl?

…he’s a Republican!

KOOLAID2 on February 18, 2014 at 2:40 PM

Congress needs to drop everything and whip through a bill banning kiss-cam nationwide.

Let’s say they weren’t brother and sister and that they’re boyfriend/girlfriend, instead. Where is it written that two people have to “perform” on command just because somebody clinked a glass or put them on the Jumbotron?

this guy did it better:

rogaineguy on February 18, 2014 at 11:42 AM

Maybe they’ve been put on the kisscam before?

Cheshire_Kat on February 18, 2014 at 7:29 PM
