Clear your Saturday afternoon schedule, fellas! It’s time to find a boyfriend that can keep up with your insatiable needs in the bedroom (or crouched behind the occasional back-alley dumpster).
It’s just like The Bachelor, except he won’t even know he’s auditioning for the role of your dreams.
That’s because Saturday is World Sword Swallower’s Day at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium in Grand Prairie. At precisely 2:23:13 p.m. (to coincide with the February 23, 2013 date, natch), sword swallowers from all over the world will deep-throat pointy weapons simultaneously with similarly talented individuals at Ripley’s locations worldwide.
The event is free to watch, but finding Mr. Right could be priceless. (Besides, you can share each other’s ruffled shirts and sequined pants.)
Just learn from our mistake last year. Keep an eye out for the guy swallowing the shortest blade. Because even on our best day, we bear little resemblance to a samurai sword.
Well, except maybe the slight upward curve. And the fire-breathing dragon illustration around the base.
