Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

FOR RICHER OR POORER

First mistake: Musician Luke Jacunski, 30, proposed to his artist girlfriend, Mami Nagase, 24, at a romantic gazebo in Central Park ... at night.


Second mistake: Jacunski had $120 and a Rolex watch on him in Central Park ... at night.

Third mistake: Love is blind because Jacunski from Cincinnati was unaware of the New York City gunman who came out of the bushes and robbed the couple right after he popped the question.

What was he thinking? Probably that he was lucky the gunman didn't get the engagement ring he managed to slip off his girlfriend's finger and hide in his pocket when the thug made them lie on the ground.

Thug's mistake: He didn't search Jacunski's pockets before he took the money and ran.

It was an unfortunate beginning for the couple who didn't get to have that romantic dinner (where Jacunski should have proposed) because they were at the police station. They did share a bag of potato chips while looking at mug shots, though.

The good news: Nagase said "Yes" despite her future husband's big Duh! moment.

Just for laughs proposal:

Maybe it was a NYC street vendor "genuine" knock-off Rolex watch worth a fraction of the real deal.
