Katherine Chloe Cahoon

Author Katherine Chloé Cahoon is out with a new book called The Single Girl's Guide to Meeting European Men, which apparently features forty tips on picking up dudes in foreign countries. This would have missed my radar completely had she not also decided to create a couple of weirdly erotic YouTube videos with tips for women. Is she trying to seduce men or her female viewers here? The videos are so wacky, we have to question the legitimacy of their content:

It should be noted that many of these tips are not Eurocentric. Beer festivals and point guards are everywhere in America too, you know...

Since the book is real, I guess the best question at this point is are the videos real or fake? Is she serious?

from the first photo I think her trick is to wait outside a guy's door until she wears him down. clever girl!

I...think she might really be a man.

Pretty hysterical. She would fit right in in a Christopher Guest joint. In fact, she reminds me a little of Catherine O'Hara. If she's not serious, she's a brilliant comedienne. She may have been a kindergarten teacher in a previous life, with that molasses delivery.

I honestly thought that was Sean William Scott in a dress in that first photo.

Get beer from men, walk away...hand beer to other men, walk away...seduction strategy, or way to act like a demented girl who thinks she's a waitress?

Why is she sitting on the ground in front of that door? Does she need help getting up?

Look at her GRIP on that mic!

I think I spotted a bit of stubble on her chin and a penis hanging below that dress in the first vid - but I could be wrong.

I think the videos are real. Like an awful lot of other people, she's convinced that she's doing a swell job on camera, and knows how to write humorous promotional fluff. Just because she's completely wrong on both counts is no reason to make furn of her.

On the other hand, in the beginning of that second video, where she's wearing that preppy pink six-button coat with a matching hair ribbon in downtown Bellevue? We should definitely make fun of her for that.

How to meet European men: 1) Go to Europe; 2) Tell people you're an American.
