markus

My friend Mark just told me about the best pick-up line he ever heard while he lived in Austria.

He walked into a bar in Vienna, and this guy just kinda singled him out. "Hey beautiful man-boy," he said, "what's your name?"

"Mark, " he said.

Now, a little background...the way the name is said in German is, "Markus", so the man said, "With a kus?" which is the German word for "kiss".

"Yes," said Mark, "with a Kus."

"Well," said the man, "then you need the Kus," and he promptly laid one on him.
