Before You Accept That Dinner Invitation…

Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs

Clarice, why don’t you come over for dinner?

The next time you get invited out to a dinner party, don’t be so quick to say yes. Instead, take your time and ask a few key questions, such as:

  • What should I bring?
  • What are you serving?
  • What should I wear?
  • Do you cook with peanut oil?
  • Are you a cannibal?

Our point is, you really should know your dinner host before you accept any invitation. Just ask the man in the the following blog (see link below) who was frightened to learn that he was not invited to be a guest, but rather, the main course. AWKWARD!

    First of all, Hannibal Lecter never ate anyone who didn’t deserve it first. Secondly…if your dumb enough to answer an add from a man being that up front and honest about what he wants to do and then be all surprised when he means what he said…you deserve to get eaten.
