Note: this can really only work with at least 2 wingmen and a very non-generalized opener (not just, "hey looks like you are drinking xxx").
Was out with my 2 excellent wingmen last night, they were not in a great state, I was only in a pretty-decent state myself. The one wingman has a pretty good opener, but since his state was off, he knew it wasn't really going to hook. He walked over to 2 girls sitting at the bar, and delivered. Didn't land. He came back to us, and the other wingman had a brilliant idea:
"What if I went over there and started with the exact same opener?"
Gold. Not only would it be for the lulz, but we reasoned that if I followed and did it as well, it would turn the dlv of a blowout into a dhv of fucking around. So we did. And by the time it was my turn, I could only make it halfway through without laughing. I returned to my seat, and we laughed for a moment, and then left.
I do suspect that given the right circumstances, after doing this with 3 people, the original pua who opened could re-open a little stronger.
If not, it was damned funny.
