Dude punned his way into a Tinder date by riffing on a girl’s name


Turning your Tinder match’s name into a pun has become a very popular opening line on the dating app. If you want proof, just look at exhibit A and exhibit B.

Now, if you are thinking, “But that’s a pretty average name…it doesn’t even sound like anything funny.” Well you are just not thinking outside the box. 

And hey, she was actually into it. 

This dude was very lucky his match’s name was not spelled, “Megan”. There’s nothing you can really do with that. Read more…

Nintendo didn’t offer pre-orders for its NES Classic in 2016, and that’s not changing this year with the SNES Classic. But, the company promises, pre-orders are going to be a thing.
