TEXT: Dear Mr. Last Kiss:

The billionaires I date all need more tax cuts and can barely afford to pay my blackmail and breast enhancement bills!

But I hear comics are a great investment! So I know comic fans must all be super rich!

And it breaks my heart to think of them being all alone…when they spend all
that money!

So please tell your readers to contact me right away…while I’m still in near mint condition!

I’m looking forward to falling hopelessly in love with at least one of them!

Smooches,
