"Oh, he’s just like any other man, only more so"

The Herald on Sunday reports that following his return from Tonga in 2003 David Garrett tried to woo a woman on an online dating site by seductively promising a feed of McDonalds and a private screening of the film Casablanca.

Garrett (a married father of two) says he can’t recall details of the online dating site. There’s a lot he seems to be trying to rationalise or explain away, and each and every attempt to do so makes him look worse. 

You know how you sound, Mr. Blaine? Like a man who’s trying to convince himself of something he doesn’t believe in his heart.  

Now that’s a nugget of wisdom that doesn’t require a trip to the Golden Arches.
