ATTRACTIVE, adj. 1) Old, fat, bald, impotent—and incredibly wealthy. This, of course, refers only to those qualities most women find attractive. For most men, the attractive qualities run as follows: vain, frivolous, selfish, shrewish—and having a great rack. (Our apologies for the gratuitous crudity; we meant “having a great personality.”); 2) As used in personals ads by both men and women, “not hideous.”
