    The Mrs. Robinson Ad revisited



    First... Are these women cougars? They look like MAYBE 30.

    Second... what the hell does this copy mean:
    "So are these women"
    So are these women what? Dating Mrs Robinson?

    Ad copy translated from Mandarin?
    Iím not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said whatever it was.

    If I was single, I would seriously consider the rich cougar route.

    Unfortunately, rich cougars operate with free will, not male fantasy.......

    Well given that Anne Bancroft was what 35 when The graduate was filmed, maybe they are women enjoying saphic love while dating their peers (or women slighly older than them).

    apparently the site is aimed at heteros (didn't actually go there, just employed some google fu as my employer watches what sites I visit), so I'm guess it's a case of engrish.

    The day I realized cougars were younger women looking for even younger men wasn't a good one for me.

    It's mispunctuated.

    "So, are these women?" ... 2 are, one isn't. Take your chances.

    So if I go back to school, does that make my wife a cougar?

    I was thinking that "Date Ms. Robinson" is the title of the site (which is obvious), but the "So are these women" means the women there are also Ms. Robinson-types.

    I would say those women are all over 30, but then again I once thought a student of mine was nine when she was actually 15, so don't ask me about ages.

    Speaking of the cougar thing, when a lot of my piano students' mothers indirectly found out I was getting divorced way back in the day, suddenly I had 8 older moms chasing me--once even asked me to live with her during my transition phase. Another mom started giving me hugs after each lesson (freaked me out), and yet another invited me to pool parties at their house, stating how it would give her an excuse to break out her bikini after several years (of course I didn't go).

    So, the cougar thing totally freaks me out in the first place. Moving along...
