On Wednesday, I told a girl at a bar, who had a pretty big nose she was probably pretty self-conscious about (the girl had a big nose, not the bar), the following:
"Has anyone ever told you that you look like Kellie Pickler but with a bigger nose? Yeah, you look like Kellie Pickler, only with that nose you have." And I didn't even realize I was being rude. But neither did she apparently, because that comment was only a small part of perhaps the most successful wingman-running-interference-operation I have ever been involved with. maybe ever seen.
But I guess the moral of the story is: "when it's worth having someone point out a physical flaw as long as they tell you you look like someone famous, you know you will be easy to run interference on."
