Salad Guys: The Celibate Bartenders of NYC
Bartenders have been doing well for themselves for decades. You don’t have to look like Tom Cruise or flip bottles like he did in Cocktail to collect numbers, though depending on the establishment they usually stack the deck in favor of the bartender. You hire good looking bartenders and women arrive, get intoxicated and look to bang the bartender. It’s like a legal way of banging your Saturday night therapist. If you build it, they will cum. You get the vulgar point I am making. Whether it is the classy dude at the swank location, or the bro wearing sweatbands talking about how cross fit has changed his life, bartendinng is like being a firefighter in the vagina obtaining game, except unlike firefighters, bartenders put their clients in more danger, instead of saving them from it. You may be asking, why is J-L talking about bartenders? Shouldn’t he exposing and overinflating an injustice in the comedy business? Well, as my comedy career possibly winds down it is time for me to be exploring bigger injustices in the world, not just in the navel gazing comedy community. And there is an injustice going on of epic proportions to the salad making community in NYC. They are the bartenders of daylight, but getting none of the vaginal benefits of bartending. And this needs to change.
Every day for the last few months I have been going to Chop’t, a very popular salad chain (co-founded by a class of ’93 alumnus of my high school – just another way for me to feel unaccomplished on a daily basis while eating lunch) in NYC. I have dropped a good amount of weight and have been very impressed with the workers at my local Chop’t. They work with sharp blades and never get injured, they work at breakneck speed and they have to remember more salads than a Starbucks barista has to memorize coffee drinks. But I have yet to see a phone number handed over by one of these demanding “tofu, hearts of palm, avocado, kale salad” ordering chicks (or guys – no judgment). So let’s break it down.
In this day and age of obsessively healthy eating who is doing your more good? The guy who makes you a $10 salad full of nutrients or the guy who “makes” you a $7 fireball shot?
Equality and Efficiency
At a crowded bar you can wait 5-10 minutes for a drink… and that is if you are a hot 24 year old chick. Well at Chop’t it doesn’t matter if you have tits spilling out of your work inappropriate outfit or if you are a grandmother with varicose veined cankles, the staff at Chop’t will deliver your product fast. And there is no room for error. At lunchtime during the work week people treat their break as sacred and will snap if things don’t move quickly enough. At a bar on the weekend, take your time Broseph – give me a watered down drink for too much whenever is conveninet for YOU!
At my Chop’t the ratio of male to female salad makers is about 11:1. And they are all Latin, a people generally known for their passionate love making. So let me get this straight – you would rather go for the bro riddled with HPV who has his pick of the litter every weekend or Miguel, the guy working his ass off, starved for vagina because he is surrounded by dick all day, just looking for a woman to have his 8 babies? For every woman that walks into a Chop’t saying they can’t find a man or are running our of time to have kids, Angel should cut off one of their fingers with the blade they cut salads with. (On a side note – having a woman chop your salad is fine – but try to avoid them picking the ingredients for you – they have small hands and cannot scoop as much chicken in your chicken salad as a dude. In fact, Chop’t should hire a 6’8″ inner city black teen basketball player as an intern and his job is simply to scoop chicken with his Kawhi Leonard hands – Chop’t gets associated with a potential NBA player while doing good for the community and I get 3 lbs of chicken in my salad. Everybody wins).
Latinos Are The Future
I have met very few Latino batenders in NYC. However, Chop’t looks like a South American soccer team. When Chad or Brint from the nighclub “Blessed” (doesn’t exist yet) turns 50 (if you make a go of it) and the magic is gone what are you left with? A bunch of dumb kids that are good looking enough to pull some high school tail and then be underachieving, aspiring actors until you die. You hook up with Carlos from Chop’t? You have a kid that speaks the language of the future (Spanglish) and looks like the future.
So basically it boils down to this: if you like a hardworking person who makes your life better, has the skills of a bartender and the hardware and tattoos of Machete, do the right thing and throw a bang in the direction of your local salad chopper. Either that or you are a dumb racist.
