Hotties for Haiti: A Date Auction

Before there was online dating, there was the date auction, where eligible young men or women under the banner of philanthropy offer their bodies and minds to the block.

Two notable portrayals in contemporary fiction of this charming method for arranging a date:

John Stamos as Uncle Jesse is bought by Becky, setting in motion a romance that will soon give her the title: "Aunt"

The cheerleaders of Bayside High earn enough from a date auction to purchase new uniforms

Enough fiction. Now for truth. This girl of NE DC is throwing her own charity date auction to benefit Haiti relief efforts at Sova Espresso & Wine, 1359 H Street NE, February 10 at 7:30 pm. All bidding proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders.

If you love Haiti, bid on a hottie.

one of my fave things is when algorithms make recommendations for media consumption that do not suggest robot world domination is imminent.

A million dollars isn't that impressive anymore. It can buy you like maybe one mcmansion in Potomac. Instead, I would buy Detroit.
