Hey, my name is … uhhhh, what?

potpartner.jpgThat’s it, I’m calling it: Web 2.0 has now officially jumped the shark.

At first, I thought Indie 103.1 was running a parody ad. Two young women have a conversation something like this:

Woman 1:Oh, what am I gonna do? I just can’t meet a hot guy who understands 4:20!
Woman 2: Hey, no problem. I just heard about this new web site, PotPartner.com!
Woman 1: PotPartner.com? What’s that?
Woman 2: If you’re a girl looking for a guy who doesn’t mind if she smokes out, that’s where you can find all kinds of hot guys …

I’m married, so maybe I don’t fully understand what a drag dating in L.A. can be, but man – something about stoners needing a web site to hook up seems sorta … tragic? …

What’s the business model for this? Are members supposed to meet each other in the back seat of clapped-out Camaros strategically parked (nose-out, in case the cops roll up) all over L.A., and then leave money for the site in the back seat in a crumpled up Pringles can?

Just a hint to the web team: The “Forgot password” link is blue on blue and, like, no one is ever gonna find it, man.

Wait … why do I suddenly have the munchies?

  1. Every time I think the stoner community couldn’t get any more lame, they suprise me and crank the stupidity up another notch.

  2. i heard this too! really late at night when i was coming home from 7 grand. i thought maybe the whiskey was going to my head, i couldn’t believe it was real.

  3. What particularly cracks me up is the ad’s use of “420” as a verb — and code for “smoking pot.”

    “If you like to 420 and are looking for someone who also loves to 420, then check out PotPartners.com!”

  4. Personally I dont see anything wrong with this site. If it helps people with common interests meet up then why would that be a bad thing?

  5. Would we be ridiculing a radio ad for a site that promised to hook up people who drink wine? People who ride motorcycles? People who love their Shih-Tzus a little too much?

    Meehhhh, maybe. Pot’s inherently humorous, I guess.

    Finding a partner that’s understanding of your recreational drug use isn’t necessarily a bad thing. On the other hand, if it’s the first thing you look for in a person I think you’ve got a problem. I doubt anybody would be in favor of AlchoHookUps.com, CrackBuddies.com or SmackHarmony.com. Except Libertarians, because they’re assholes. ;)
