I don't care bear

A while ago I bought some printable iron-on transfers and now that I've let them age for 6 months I think I'm going to start using them.

I think the below suits a friend of mine's personality. However, she does have 2 small kids and the "go fuck yourself' on the bear's chest probably isn't appropriate. I need to decide : what should be there?

Fine qualities to impress 1.618

My list of my many several fine qualities that I hope will impress 1.618 :
  • I am an acceptable draftsman. for example (an old christmas card) or nudes
  • I am an okay painter
  • a girl at work said (about me) : “If I wasn’t already married, you’d be a catch...”
  • I have a blog. All the girls think a blog is incredibly sexy (based upon what I assume girls think.)
  • I'm not very coordinated I am sufficiently coordinated that I have never broken a bone (or I have very strong bones - a clear evolutionary benefit)
  • I have been described as Tarzan-like (pretty sure that one was a compliment)
  • Several french and spanish girls have told me I have a very sexy american accent.
  • A japanese girl once told me that I "speak very big" (It may have been simply an observation but I will assume it was a compliment because I need to pad the list)
  • insomniac
  • I was born with 10 fingers and still have all 10 (all ten dispersed equally on 2 hands, none sticking haphazardly from my feet or from my head or anything).
  • I am incredibly modest (which I say because I seem to have run out impressive things to mention - if I become less boring or if I can think of anything else, I shall let you know)

How irresistible am I? (in case 1.618 was doubting)

Last week at work a girl told me that 'somebody' likes me. This somebody sent Emily over to ask if I was married etc. Of course, Emily refused to tell me who the mystery girl is because apparently that simply isn't done (despite the fact that we are neither 9 years old nor in grade school).

So now I walk down the hallways and with every female I see I think "Oh yeahhh...she's checking me out!"

One possibility is a nurse who is about 75... I accidently touched her breast about 2 years ago. It is possible that it was a pivotal moment in her life and has been pining for me ever since. But I kind of hope not.

Another woman I know wants me to date her daughter (although, I have to admit, it isn't because she thinks I'd make her some beautiful grandchildren but because she wants her daughter to date someone with a job.)

Potentially important phrases

I used to work with a woman who was originally from Tanzania. When she refused to teach me how to swear in swahili I instead asked her to teach me how to say several potentially useful phrases :

Lookout, a lion!
Help I was attacked by a lion. I need a doctor.
Help, I'm being chased by an elephant.
A giraffe stole my hat, I need to borrow a gun.

Unfortunately, I've forgotten most all of it except doktari=doctor, Timbo=elephant, twiga=giraffe, bondoki=gun.

Nearly useless! If I go to Africa I will be doomed!

Might make an interesting t-shirt...
