Re: cocky & funny
First off Cocky & Funny works. Listen to some of Tyler RSD and you will hear he does Cocky & Funny big time. Such as the claw, picking up girls, making out with random chicks, making chicks grab him and making a joke like it was their idea and him laughing about it, etc. That's the best example I can give you. Tyler gave an example that Julien RSD barks at girls and calls them dogs in his opener and then makes it an inside joke between him and the target. But Tyler even said his stuff or Julien's stuff is not foolproof or ironclad so he essentially says what they may do specifically is not a cookie cutter approach but more of a don't try this at home kids kind of take away.
In the end you have to find your niche of Cocky & Funny. Cocky & Funny is for advanced PUA's who have fundamental knowledge and use it to challenge themselves. I will be using it this year as last year it was meat and potatoes kind of pick up. I tried Cocky Funny once on a 10 and it went south pretty quick. I said I like a good challenge to pull her strings and it pinged her to the grave. She pinged so bad she openly admitted lying saying here's my challenge "I have a fiancÚ" which was total BS because she was chomping at the bit. Then when I got all seriously cocky and said I am trying to be an A-hole she said "why?" further extending it and extending it till I lost frame control and lost it since she ended up getting offended me saying I was sick of being a nice guy. Came off too try hard I guess. So you gotta be able to really bring it. I wasn't funny enough in my ploy and mostly just cocky which without funny just comes off arrogant. So I guess you could say had I added some humor (like I am an A-hole in rehab) maybe she would have dropped the iceshield. Find your niche all I can say as I will be searching for mine this year.
