Here the number of available partners does show a concave shape.
Interestingly the sex ratio at birth is 1.05:1 in favor of men.
In the next frame, Randall takes the obligatory shot at negging. He's a good friend of mine, and we lived together for about a year. The point of a neg isn't to undermine a girl's confidence (do you REALLY think that's possible with an extremely hot girl in a club? The point is to signal that you aren't intimidated by her and will treat her like a normal person. I made fun of her for accidentally spilling water on herself.
My friends and I make fun of each other in a joking way all the time-- the response is always laughter, or maybe a counter-retort. She made fun of me for wearing dumb looking flip-flops. It's all in good fun-- call it negging, or teasing, or banter, either way it's playful and friendly.

Because all of the guys talking like "fucking human being(s)" are boring and so obviously failing to attract the girls, that the girls think it's hilarious. But even if you disagree and think that normal is a good place to be, what about people who CAN'T talk like a normal human being?
