The promise of an unforgettable experience was generously gifted to a friend of mine the other night near the infamous prostitute hotel, Del Rey, in downtown San José. She was walking home when she passed by a smiling man wearing a cowboy hat. He was passing out pieces of paper, which is not uncommon. She wasn’t sure what it was, but just accepted it assuming it was a party flyer or something religious that would soon be discarded. She took the card and said “gracias.”
Then she read it.
I think this might be the funniest business card I have ever seen. It is funniest in Spanish, I’ll do my best to translate it…

Now, having read this, I bet you are wishing I didn’t white out the man’s phone numbers so you could call him for dinner and karaoke, right?
