complexion". That is a very white complexion with some rosiness. You often
see people like this in the Czech Republic. They have very white skin and
some blush to their cheeks, like lightly painted porcelain. This can
indicate at the same time the innocent look of a young girl, maybe a
"Get a load of" means "take a look at".
The person is playing with the common expression "tall, dark and handsome",
which means what it sounds like -- tall, dark-haired and handsome. Handsome
is replaced with scaly, so either the the person being talked about has a
skin problem, or more likely, he is being compared to a lower life form,
as a fish or a lizard. One that has scales.
It sounds to me as if this is a comment upon seeing a sweet, beautiful,
virginal young girl going with some kind of disgusting man who, in the
opinion of the speaker, is sleazy and does not suit her.
