Five ice-breakers

Unlike some on my F-List I don't post every day. Sometimes I just don't know what to say, something that happens in real life too. So I've prepared a couple of ice-breakers to avoid those toe-cringing moments of silence and win instant popularity.

1)      "I use vuvuzelas to pep up my love life." (In bars)

2)      "But evolution is just a theory!" (At biology conventions.)

3)      "I just took this strange confession from a choir boy." (In the Vatican)

4)      "Boarded any interesting ships recently?" (In Israel)

5)       "I think BP is SO misunderstood." (Everywhere)

How about you? Got any sure-fire ways to start a pleasant chat with strangers?

I should add: especially if the audience is female...

I see all the signs of wisdom here :-)

Not for me, then.

How's the football going? (anywhere in France) ;)

Oh yes, "Allez le Bleus!"

Btw. Denmark got kicked out of the World Cup yesterday, but we're treating it more as 'sad' than a disaster. Unlike the French stars, who play (and get paid) very well in their clubs, the Danish players don't have a reputation to live up to :-)

I can only imagine the disappointment of being a player (or manager) whose team has just been knocked out of a big competition, but there's really no excuse for that French manager's appalling behaviour.
