Unintentionally hilarious book of the week

Some tips from The Single Girl's Guide to Meeting European Men:

"Male hikers cannot resist the hair flip."

"Sleeping with random men can be dangerous."

"These Latin lovers are known for wearing button-up shirts with the top three buttons undone, so you can spot an Italian male in any country."

"You do want to eat to impress, but porking up is never fun. Then your clothes won't fit and going naked is not a viable alternative."

"All of the girls I know who got French boyfriends did not have large bust lines."

"My girlfriends who have visited [Scotland] want to let you know that the Scot's [sic] accents can be very difficult to understand at first, but it's worth making the effort to get over this hurdle."

My favorite tip is "Avoid the bubble butt" -- in other words, don't work out so much that you overdevelop your gluteus maximus. The author relates the touching tale of a friend of hers, a competitive figure skater, who suffered the heartbreak of bubble butt. She was too fit! She solved the problem in four months by taking up Pilates.

Sorry, ladies. You will have to wait until October for this gem to go on sale.

Looks like nobody told the illustrator that it's a guide to meeting European straight men.
