Tall, Dark and Handsome guy days are over for the stereotyped Mr. Perfect who
goes by the name, Brad, Bryan or Brandon. Why these Bs, anyways? Well, welcome
to the era of the uncelebrated, short, dark (charcoal black, not ebony), and
for this ugly-to-fine evolution, but I waited. And it did not even take too
long before submissions were made and ideologies changed to suit the immediate
needs of the ladies of nowadays.

NOTE: If you are not handsome, be Intelligent. If you are not intelligent, have
some good money. If you are neither Handsome and Intelligent nor Rich, you
might just wanna kill yourself…

are turning clean and eventually handsome because money makes you look really
good even when you can’t spell the word-good. Money can clean and reconfigure
the facial settings of individuals to give a perfect makeover.
looks alike to freely accept the tag “Ugly”, as nowadays, that gives you the
finest ladies money can attract. Ooops! I meant the finest ladies money can buy.
ladies are editing their shopping lists from Handsome to God-fearing, from Tall
to Average, from Dark to Albino (seriously?), and finally adding something new-
