Hey Baby, Want to Give Me The Heimlich Maneuver?
by Mad Dog


Itís not clear whether he ever actually got a date out of it, but hey, you have to admire his resourcefulness. After all, not every loser can make it through the screening process for The Bachelorette.

Itís not easy meeting women. Well, not for some of us anyway. You can meet them through work, but thatís not a big help if you freelance, are a Franciscan monk, or are a victim of the ďrecovering economyĒ who hopes romance can be found on the unemployment line. Thereís church, but that means sitting through sermons, getting fat from hanging around bake sales buying cookies you donít need or want, and playing bingo, which can be expensive. And embarrassing when you chat up the woman sitting next to you and it turns out to be your grandmother. You can be thoroughly modern and go online to use a matchmaking web site, but that means having to become proficient at digital retouching since sooner or later the 55-year-old guy on the other end pretending to be a hot 21-year-old babe named Tiffany is going to want to see a photograph of you. One without the receding hairline, bags under your eyes, and the last 10 years of your life. Thatís why faking a choking episode to meet women sounds so enticing. Hey, itís been working for a guy in Punta Gorda, Florida.

   The Choking Man, as a local newspaper nicknamed him, has a unique techniqueóhe goes to a public place and starts to cough, gasping for air, turning red, and flailing around wildly. When a woman runs over and gives him the Heimlich maneuver, he spits out a piece of the apple he was eating, then hugs and kisses her to show his nondying gratitude. And desperation. Iím not sure what he does if a man saves his life but I suspect he offers to share the newly recovered piece of apple and vows never to try that trick in Hooters again.


A study found that getting married or staying married lessened the symptoms of depression in men when compared to being single, divorced, cohabiting, or choking on an apple in Punta Gorda. Big deal, Xanax is even better.

   His modus operandi came to light after the newspaper reported an incident. It didnít take long for a half-dozen women to call and say they too fell for the manís trick. Itís not clear whether he ever actually got a date out of it, but hey, you have to admire his resourcefulness. After all, not every loser can make it through the screening process for The Bachelorette.

   Itís not surprising the Choking Man would want a woman in his life. After all, a study at Ohio State University (motto: ďThe Other Ohio UniversityĒ) found that getting married or staying married lessened the symptoms of depression in men when compared to being single, divorced, cohabiting, or choking on an apple in Punta Gorda. Big deal, Xanax is even better than marriage since itís cheaper, less prone to start an argument over which movie to see, and is available at any drugstore. Hopefully the researchers are conducting a follow-up study to see if being married to more than one woman at a time makes a man even less depressed, something they should be able to discover in Thailand where, in spite of having been outlawed since 1932, more than a quarter of the married men say they have two wives. Thai men are known to be gluttons for punishment.

   There are definitely things the Choking Man can do to help him meet women other than shove pieces of apple down his throat. For one, he could take voice lessons. After all, a good voice is important to finding a mate in the animal world and, as all women will attest, we men are animals. For example, it turns out that the booming songs sung by finback whales arenít a sonarlike navigational aid as scientists thought, itís actually them practicing Olí Man River for the next edition of American Idol. Just kidding. Whales hate show tunes. Well, the heterosexual ones anyway. Actually the deep, low-pitched calls are made by males in order to attract females, much like construction workers calling out to passing women, except whales have much better results.


Nothing turns a woman off faster than to hear that your name is Choking Man. Unless, of course, itís Saddam Hussein, Miss Prissypants, or Carrot Top. 

   A good singing voice is also important to the black-capped chickadee, especially the males who have singing contests with each other. Hey, what else do they have to do other than sit around doing bad W.C. Fields imitations which get old very fast in the little chickadee world? Singing badly can have dire consequences for themóif a male loses a singing contest, his partner mates with the winner. Now thereís a twist American Idol hasnít thought of. Yet. True, mama chickadee returns to the nest after her dalliance, but she has a lot of explaining to do. And lord help her if the egg comes out looking like the other guy.

   Probably the easiest thing the Choking Man can do if he ever hopes to find a woman is change his name. Nothing turns a woman off faster than to hear that your name is Choking Man. Unless, of course, itís Saddam Hussein, Miss Prissypants, or Carrot Top. He might consider changing it to something like, say, Torums Scarf Michael. Donít laugh, thatís the name of the Kerry Blue Terrier which won the 127th annual Westminster Kennel Dog Show (motto: ďWho owns who?Ē) and you know heís not only going to have all the bitches he wants, but will get paid damned good money to have sex with them. If Choking Man doesnít like that name, he might consider appropriating the name of the Newfoundland which didnít winóDarbydaleís All Rise Pouchcove. Or at least the dogís middle names. With self-promotion like that, who needs to fake choking on an apple?
