I suppose I should have posted this yesterday on Valentine's Day, but I wasn't feeling it then. And it's #FUFebruary, so I'm doing whatever the heck I want.
One of my favorite guilty pleasure movies is "George of the Jungle" (starring a shirtless Brendon Fraser). There is one scene in particular where Ape the ape is giving George advice on how to woo Jane. It involves beating his chest and puffing out his cheeks.
When George returns unsuccessful, Ape regards him over his glasses and says, "Are you certain you threw the leaves?"
The scene stuck with me. It was a joke between me and Rich and I've taught to others.
If you are trying to woo someone, it's best to "throw some leaves." If you're not sure if they noticed the leaves, you can point it out. It also helps to clarify if you're not sure if those were leaves.
You can use it over text messages too.
So that’s my gift to you all. If you’re trying to attract someone, beat your chest, puff out your cheeks. And make sure you throw some leaves.
