It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

A rather different one. In the animal kingdom, many species try to attract a mate by a form of conspicuous consumption: proving that they would make a superior partner and parent by wasting the energy or effort that would be a benefit in those roles. This is just taking that to its logical extreme...

I am unattractive. Not even interestingly ugly, just devoid of anything pretty.
I have no ideas or skills. I am a husk. I flunked out of university and did nothing interesting instead. No sports, no achievements. Forget the idea of me having money: I hope you're willing to work, because I'm not.
And I am a complete slut. That is where I will dedicate all my energy. Get used to the idea that I'm going to spread my genes wherever I go.
But at least now you know that I am not going to lie about it.
Put me to the test;
I'd love to lay this rivalry to rest!
