A little July humor from Flight of the Conchords. Caveat: contains language and themes that may not be appropriate for work or the company of children.
The summary: a kiss does not constitute a binding promise of anything more (maybe just an invitation to make an offer?). I like the gender role reversal here -- at least, I would have thought gender stereotypes would have a woman singing these lyrics. Adds to the humor (or is the humor?), I suppose. I won't try to determine why this is funny - as we were reminded in Leonard v. Pepsico, "Humor can be dissected, as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process. . . ."
