  5. “Generally, we European men are looking for women with slight brain damage. A woman such as yourself. Here, let me wipe that drool off your lip for you.” –Romantic European Point Guards.

    • mans! i used to date this guy who was super super weird, but kind of hot, so whatever, but i was still pretty ashamed to be dating him. he moved to germany and now he is like a “ladies man.” i think it is the language difference that keeps people from perceiving him as anything other than “charming american” even though an american would obviously recognize him as “creepy dude.” i think this woman has figured out how to get around the fact that she is an MRF by moving to europe. the wee britain effect!

  6. First off: “issue” 1:24
    second, jokes on us, right?

  7. #1 Secret to Picking Up European Men:

    Dress like a Las Vegas Hooker….’s Mom.

  8. Speaking as a single woman of the non coconut breed…….WTF.

  9. Kathrine’s got the screen presence of a scarecrow michael jackson.

  10. Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith are gonna write SO many movies about this girl.

  11. Ah, so this is explains all of the “Mail Order Point Guard” spam I’ve been getting.

  12. “I could go on and on about why I like European men… and I will do so now.”

  13. Katherine Chloe Cahoon: “Why European Men Want to Avoid American Women”

  14. I think Sally Draper turned out pretty well, all things considered.

  15. My first response to pretty much all of this:

    My second response:

    how the eff did she get my diary?

  16. I play Small Forward actually..

  17. “Im-p-or-t-an-t is a six syllable word. You can trust me, I have my hand on my hip. Totally casual genius at work.”

  18. Props to the American dude defending the honor of non-european men everywhere.

    • That guy was such a puppet. All I could think about every time he showed his face was: “what a traitor.” It’s perhaps the closest I’ve ever come to feeling like Bill OReily (other than my whole shower implement fetish phase.) I was in my office mouthing the phrase “love it or leave it you fucking sell out,” as I clenched my fists and gritted my teeth.

    • He just finished playing a rapist in a film.

  19. This girl is spot on. My wife is always going ON AND ON about Vlade Divac. “Oh, he’s soooooo taaaaaalllll. I just love his passing skills! He’s got great mobility for a big man. I wouldn’t mind running a little three-man-weave with him and Nikola Pekovic!”

  20. Definitely viral marketing for UnderArmour.
    Did I say “UnderArmour”? I meant “going gay”.

  21. She seems legitimately horny throughout this entire thing.

  22. I can’t wait to meet the European man of my dreams!

  23. “Cahoon is currently working with producers on the screenplay of the book, which they refer to as Sex and the City meets Love Actually in the hot spots of Europe.”
    That’s how it ends, not with a whimper but with a bang

  24. New drinking game:
    Drink every time she says “European men.” Then pick up the loaded handgun you keep under your mattress and kill yourself.

  25. “A good place to find European men is” – Europe?
    “in their sports” – like rugby, soccer, cycling, cricket, field hockey?
    -cue basketball court-
    Derp.

  26. How awesome would it have been if Tommy Wiseau just showed up in the middle of this video.

  27. Ugly American.

  28. Ladies:

    “I am looking for a woman with a nice long neck and a cool, dry basement.” –Count Orlok.

  29. That girl is a nightmare women.

  30. I have to use that pick-up line whenever I’m in America (next week! So excited! Please have a Monster Party next week Gabe, it will probably be the last time I’ll be in New York before 2012):

    “I’m from Europe. LADIES?”

  31. That was an awful lot of wardrobe changes for getting across zero information. I suspect this video is a ruse for getting the chance to break out her 50′s wiggle dress collection.

  32. I’m not trying to be an asshole here, but she never told me how to pick any of those dudes up. Had she called it: “I am into European men,” I wouldn’t feel the need to say anything, but come on. It’s like someone telling me they’d teach me how to fix my car and just going on and on about how awesome cars are.

  33. This video is AWKWARD. And she speaks English as if she’s from Europe.

  34. No bookgum tag?

  35. when did Joan Cusack have a stroke?

  36. “This festival should be called ‘ManFest’.”

  37. I see a lot of botox, Pomeranians, being married to a gay dude, chardonnay, and quaaludes in this girl’s future…

    • I’d also like to add, that my dad is from “Europe” and my mom met him during FLEET WEEK. They’re divorced now, and I can’t remember what year they got married, but I know I was either on my way or in action.

  38. I CAN NEVER TELL IF I’M BEING TROLLED ANYMORE. I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS WORLD ANYMORE. OH WELL. ONLY 2 YEARS LEFT.

  39. Dear God, she also went to (one of my) hometowns: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilTu2cJEKio&feature=related

    I LOVE how she says how difficult it is to understand artists. Big words, tricky. All a girl wants to hear is ‘hey, wanna go for a ride?” Thanks for that. Edinburgh (Eh-diin-buuuurow)is known for its scenic highways. Yes.

    • When this translates on the screen as a key moment in Eat, Pray, Love: Risk Addiction, I am totally going to protest outside the UK Premiere.

      And I’m a Glaswegian McLorry – this romanticisation of Edinborrow’s culturedness should be hilarious.

  40. Gabe, the “update” deserves its own post. It’s an unwitting journey into the topic of “how to get raped in Europe.” I can only assume her next piece of advice is to track down some British Stag parties and tag along.

    • I like how her book contains “Lots of true man meeting (meating?) stories.”

    • She seriously said this when asked how she celebrate her book deal on the “My Reading Room” blog (You CAN’T make it up)

      “I vividly remember the day I received my book deal. I was in LA juggling what seemed like a kazillion meetings…some were at studios and some at production companies. Because my meetings were back-to-back and I had to dress more formally at certain places, I was literally changing en route. It was crazy! When I got the news, I absolutely wanted to celebrate, so I went to Crumbs Cupcakes. If you have never been there, it’s a must-go! This is cupcake heaven. Seriously, I can’t think of what better celebration a girl could have…well maybe she could add an appealing man to share her cupcake.”

      High heels and cupcakes – right, ladies!?

      It’s quite amazing, actually. She delves in to other awesome ‘chick topics’ like how she loves the kitchen, reads Gone With the Wind, takes bubble baths, eats ice cream and goes to the salon. I’m really not making this up.

    • 0:36 – “Oh shit, she wants me to say MORE things about my book?”

      – Katherine Chloe Cahoon’s brain

  41. tip on picking up [european] men: don’t talk like a robot. don’t let on that you’re a robot until at least the third date.

  42. oooo! “subtle” fat shaming: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2KHI_JQo5Q
    (video about katherine’s friend feeling fat in her bathing suit, and how that won’t get you european men)

  43. Wait wait wait wait, the second video… OktoberFest = MANFEST. So she doesn’t drink and puts herself in the same category as Jennifer Lopez (crazy bitch), Blake Livey (I have no problem with her really), and Jennifer Love Hewitt (the girl who’s dated every douche under the sun (John Mayer, Carson Daly, Eric Matthews from BMW, dude from LFO (rip) and also dressed up like Audrey Hepburn on her 30th birthday and stood outside of Tiffanys… There we go.) THEN: She says that when men find out you don’t drink, that they’re eager to give you beer (DUH) but that you can politely thank them and then REGIFT those beers to other dudes. WHAT?

  44. I’m waiting for the video on how to meet the uncircumsized man of your dreams. “Some of the uncut hotspots are Romanian bathouses and Greek beaches. Try and become a towel girl at a resort and watch your dreams unsheath.”

  45. Katherine: “Francois, what are you training for?”
    Francois: “I am training for (garbled) Germany, in August.
    Katherine: “…and I’m chilling by my bike.”

    She should teach at interviewing school!

  46. DROP EVERYTHING THIS ONE HAS DANCE MOVE DEMOS

  47. She is your second favorite author, behind this guy:

  48. My name is So And So!

  49. Pretty sure this video wins the internet this week.

  50. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l58Vk7B43dg

    “There are so many ways to wear a sarong dress! And if it falls off, you have your bathing suit on underneath.”

  51. Yes, she may have trouble spitting words out, but I’m still impressed that a senior photo can talk in the first place.

  52. Why is she using that Shake Weight as a microphone?

  53. Currency isn’t the only thing in America that gains value overseas.

  54. Nice try monsters:

  55. CAN SOME PLEASE HELP ME PLEASE. I AM READING THE EXCERPT OF HER BOOK ON AMAZON AND I AM REALLY LOSING FAITH IN EVERYTHING. THERE ARE SO MANY PROBLEMS WITH HER PROSE AND THE MESSAGE AND THE UGNHGUNGHGH THAT I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF RIGHT NOW.

    “Then she went on a love-provoking weekend to Sweden and ran into the man of her dreams. When I say “ran into” i mean that literally.”

    CAN ANYBODY GUESS WHAT SHE DESCRIBES IN THE NEXT SENTENCE. DO YOU THINK IT MIGHT BE HOW HER FRIEND FUCKING RAN INTO A SWEDISH MAN WHILE SHE WAS ON A “LOVE -PROVOKING” WEEKEND?

    what does it all mean :( :( :( :(

  56. i know that nobody is out there anymore… but this is for ME.

  57. Hey, my name’s spelled “Kathleeny” not “Dan”, Gabe. I sent you the tip for this last Friday.

  58. Dude was neither European, nor Macedonian.

  59. Didn’t they make her book into a movie with Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace?

  60. Check out The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men highest rated Amazon review. Amazing!
