Yes, like his head is up his butt, where the pie charts came from.

Yes. It's true that I probably do this, at least unconsciously, with the majority of younger women but with no intent of viewing them as meat. Also, I do have a number of extremely attractive female friends, one of which is a fashion model, with whom I am just friends and with no intention of having sex with. Of course I'd love to have sex with my fashion model friend and she knows it, but that's just not the nature of our relationship (which is by no means shallow) and I respect that. I am also not suffering terrible withdrawal symptoms for not having sex with my female friends. This flies in the face of ladder theory.

So true. Moving beyond our "ladders" is the beginning of civility.

Oh well, I've found it creepy because that guy seems to take it so seriously I reckon he must be a pretty angry, disturbed fellow. But anyways, if one looks at it as dark humor then yes I guess it can be entertaining. I've found his illustration of the proverbial ugly guy with a hot chick Very funny:
