LG 1080p Upscaling DVD Player

by Wootbot

Sorry, Ladies

I don’t upscale on the first date.

Dang, girl! You can’t just reach for a man’s remote control like that and just expect him to let you fondle it. Regardless of what you may have read in magazine or on the Internet, some guys like to take it slow. Jumping straight to the Dolby® Digital goodness is not cute or fun, you know. It just makes you look… desperate.

I had hoped you were going to be different, but you’re just like all the others. You think that just because a man asks you to come over for dinner you’re going to get him on the couch and watch his DVDs on a LG 1080p Upscaling DVD Player or something. Well, I’m just not built that way. I want to get to know someone before I insert my discs and start upscaling to 1080i via HDMI output. If you want to get into my DVD player, it’s going to take time, understanding, and one of several compatible disc formats or a USB drive, girl.

Alright, I’ll give you one more chance, but that’s it. You gotta make me believe you respect both me and my LG 1080p Upscaling DVD Player. You do that and, baby, we can upscale as much as you like, whenever you like. That’s a promise. Now then, break out that Parcheesi board, girl. I feel like a little capturing and blockading action. Aw, yeah.
