SNL Dating Advice: Lie To Him, LadiesDodai Stewart10/17/11 6:00pmFiled to: SnlKristen WiigDatingAnna FarisTell himTVCelebrity110EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink In a skit on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott and Nasim Pedrad sang a little song for Vanessa Bayer, set to the tune of "Tell Him" by The Exciters. In the SNL cover of the song, the ladies dispense the following dating advice: "Tell him that you don't believe in marriage. Tell him that you don't care if you have kids. Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him all lies."AdvertisementThe ladies went on to sing that if you want a man, you need to tell him that you love watching hockey, playing Call Of Duty, and reading comics. When it comes to sex, "You have to seen fun, and up for anything." Therefore:Tell him that you're open to a three-way Tell him that you watch porn every day Tell him that you're not grossed out when he says the word pantiesThe skit was set in a retro diner, with all of the ladies wearing pink and black, and it was staged as though they were in a Grease-like musical. But the advice dealt with the concerns of a modern woman:AdvertisementIf you want him to stay pining after you Then you have to hide All the things women do Tell him that you're naturally hairless Make him think you never use the bathroom Then when you're sleeping you can run to StarbucksThe premise that to get a man to fall in love, a woman needs to be manipulative, deceptive and scheming is a fairly old one. Seriously, even Eve was accused of subterfuge. The lies may change, but the idea is still the same: Men are rigid, lazy dolts and ladies need to bend the truth, be flexible and work extra hard to snag them. But chances are, for every woman who listened to this SNL song and said, "It's funny because it's true, I hate hockey!" there's another woman who has stood her ground and refused to watch UFC or play Grand Theft Auto. (That chick is single, though, amirite? Ha. Kidding.)The joke relies on some pretty standard stereotypes: Women don't play Call Of Duty. Guys don't want to think of a woman as someone who poops. Every stand-up comedy routine ever assumes the same crap, even though women play video games and men living with women who fart and shit haven't tried to create a lady-less colony on the moon. Aren't we past these silly tropes? Aren't we in an era of gender myth-busting?
