    If people are associating your phrase with Hugh Hefner, it’s probably not a winner with the ladies.

    And that shuts down the “Binders Full of Women” meme. Well done, Doug.

    Uh, why did the word ‘polygamy’ come to mind when I heard ‘binders full of women’?

    This is totally for the pure humor of it all. So, yes, tongue firmly in cheek.
