Today I learned a new word: cougar.

Or, in the words of A: "The thing that makes a cougar a cougar isn't being hot and seasoned age-wise... It's the attention they give young guys... a 35 year old non-cougar is a woman who's trying to meet men her age, maybe a little older, maybe a little younger.. but with the intention of actually dating and having a relationship...Cougars don't have relationships. They have sex. Specifically, they have sex with young guys who'd never seek a relationship with someone of her age."

How could my education ever have been so lacking?

Hmmm... so do they have a similar word for old men who seek out young women to use for sex, or are we sticking with "hell-bound asshole creeps" for now? :)

hmmm, didn't they used to call cougars "Mrs. Robinson"? :)

Though a hot young piece of meat wouldn't be such a bad least for an hour or two!

Clearly you're not watching enough Extra and Access Hollywood. I saw a story about "cougars" on one of those shows a couple of months ago. You know, back when Demi and Ashton got married. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go be ill just from typing his name.

I'm neither. Amen. But I'm 38. But not single. They have to be 35? What are they when they're 36? Too old? Unwanted Cougar? Puma? Leper??
