Who would you pimp for $25 million?

I ask this because Neverland is for sale, and I wouldn't mind having some more toys. I could ignore the likelihood that the previous owner was a pedophile if it meant I could have an amusement park in my back yard. Talk about a chick magnet.

Speaking of chick (or guy) magnets, my college roommate kept assorted video games for the specific purpose of having a pretense to invite dates back to the apartment. The line "Hey, wanna come back to my place and play DDR?" had a surprisingly high success rate.

But back to my original question: who would you pimp for $25 million? $10 million? $1 million? I would pimp both my mom and Gloria's mom for $25 million. Gloria says she'd pimp her own mother for $250,000; my mom is worth at least $1 million. But you might be able to talk me into pimping my brother for $250,000.

Rock Band trumps DDR.
You're Welcome.

Strange and unbecoming post. Not so much offensive, but likely taken as a shallow, base attempt at humor (which might've redeemed it, if present). Why attach your name to it? Fine for conversation - they're easily forgotten or disregarded. But to memorialize it? May only pose little risk, but for what reward?

Hyperbole. It's usually used in humor.

Quite familiar with the concept, but you're worlds away from responding to my question. Literary devices and their
(in)effective uses aside, any 'scintilla' of humor is swallowed by questionable judgment. That's all.

It seems like if you were going to be an ass, you would at least know the difference between literary devices and literary techniques. Hyperbole is a literary technique, not a literary device. Idiota ipsa loquitur.

Why thank you, Phaedrus!

Why isn't it "Whom would you pimp?"

Better question, anyone you wouldn't JUMP for $25 million?
