Catching up on a little bit of TV this weekend, we ran across an episode of Mike & Molly the TiVo had decided we'd find amusing. It wasn't entirely wrong about that; we've loved Melissa McCarthy ever since her stint as chef Sookie St. James on the dearly departed Gilmore Girls. We did, however, run up against a joke we've heard repeated ad infinitum in sitcoms, films, dating columns and comedy acts.

The titular Mike comes into possession of a free chalupa coupon after his beloved Bulls win a game against the Celtics and score over 100 points in the process. Character after character cautions his not to take his date to the restaurant just because he's got a coupon, implying that it'd make him look like a tightwad.

Would you indeed look askance at a coupon clipper who was attempting to woo you?

    I had a guy tell me that we could go wherever I wanted for our first date, so I told him where I wanted to go. We ended up going instead to a place where he had a coupon for, the food was alright but if you are going to tell me we can go where I want don't end up taking me to a different restaurant then use a coupon!!!!!!!!!!!! Just sayin
