    Meh. Nothing that keeps the interest. Pretty predictable ending and not that funny or so.

    2/5

    I agree with the tandoori duck. Short and reasonably amusing, pretty much what a humor oneshot should be.

    It wasn't bad... but it wasn't really that good either.

    3/5

    It was fairly entertaining. Yet as Vlad said, it wasn't great either.

    3/5.

    It was alright, I think I would have enjoyed it more if they had been having sex though. As it was the surprise ending well I can't say I expected it, but it didn't make me crack a smile.

    3/5 because it's averagely amusing.

    Not what I expected but not really amusing either. Nothing that made me laugh out loud, and I caught onto the 'twist' pretty quickly. In short, nothing that really kep me entertained. I'm giving it 2/5 for some entertaining dialogue, but nothing higher.

    Well this is just my sort of humour so I laughed uproariously at it. 4/5 from me.

    It got a laugh form me, and the author didn't try to over extend it beyond where it needed to finish. So 4/5.

    I'm surprised with the general apathy towards this story. I thought it was bloody perfect, if a bit predictable. Still, that just made me laugh all the more when you finally came to the twist. I think this deserves to be in the library for that quick, refreshing humor that most authors don't achieve. 4/5 for me.

    Funny, but the revelation of the punchline at the end is a little flat. 3/5.

    The ending should maybe have been shorter so that the punchline came quicker. Think that would have been more of a laugh.

    Still a good story, 3,5 from me!

    I'm also giving it a 3. It made me smile, but that's about all it did. I say it's Bin worthy at the least.
