Flicking through the latest edition of GQ magazine, a popular French Quarter advertising account manager spied an article that described what females allegedly like seeing in a man’s house.

What Konrad Randrup, a first generation Danish-Australian, read in that article chilled him to his very core.

“It said that girls like men who read,” he said.

“Which presented a problem because I didn’t have any books. There were a lot of other things in that article like getting into shape or having a good sense of humour but they take a lot of time and hard work to improve,”

“Getting some books was something I could fix immediaetly and with very little effort. So I stopped by my local independent bookshop and pulled some nice looking ones off the shelf and handed the prick behind the counter my credit card and we’re away.”

Our reporter asked Mr Randrup if he places to read any of the books, to which he laughed and said no.

He told The Advocate that he was only reading that issue of GQ in the first place because he was in a dentist waiting room.

“Turns out it was a GQ from 2007 [laughs] Hope the advice was timeless! I’ll let you know how I go, mate.”

In the interests of balance, the director of sales here at The Advocate, Rachael Frost, was quizzed about the validity of the GQ article’s substance and the conclusions drawn from it by Mr Randrup.

“Please don’t annoy me with this garbage journalism,” she said.

“But to answer your question, just so you’ll leave, I don’t give a shit.”

More to come.
