It Actually Gets Quite a Bit More Awkward

Older Man and Young Woman on Couch

THE IMAGE: An older man who is not Andrew Cuomo making a helpful young woman uncomfortable in his well-appointed home.

THE BAIT: The end of the sponsor's suggestive headline -- what could it be? Hmmm ... It doesn't get more awkward than a family member asking ... for a kidney? For help hiding a dead body? For a date?

THE TARGET: Um ... white people?

THE STUPID: The fact that the sponsor is MassMutual should tip you off that whatever being asked in this inane hypothetical has to do with personal finance, and not some crazy shit going on in some family even more messed up than your own.
