A MAN who has spent 30 minutes explaining to his date what non-fungible tokens are is somehow under the impression that the evening is going well.
Jack Browne saw no problem in spending the main course telling Sophie Rodriguez exactly what a blockchain is, despite her blatantly looking at her phone the whole time.
Rodriguez said: “His Tinder bio did say he was a ‘crypto-nerd’ but it made him sound kind of offbeat and interesting. And also like he might be secretly loaded.
“However, it turns out his real passion is for explaining things in such tedious detail you want to poke your own eyes out with a fork just to have something else to think about.
“I’ll admit that I did briefly think about whether I’d shag him. However, it was just because I was bored. While he was banging on I also considered whether I’d shag the waiter, the woman at the next table or Michael Gove.
“And I’m still no wiser about what non-fungible tokens are. Is it a cartoon person on your computer or something? Sounds like a great way to lose money.”
Browne said: “Sophie kept using her phone while I was talking, but I’m pretty sure she was texting her mates to say what a fascinating guy I am. Or investing in NFTs.”
