What’s Your Favorite Pick-Up Line?

“Scientists” (barflies) just discovered that the best pick-up line is “hello.” Alternatively, “how are you?”

That’s all well and good, except that they’re wrong. The best pick-up line is “if I could rearrange the alphabet and put U and I together, I probably wouldn’t. Can you imagine how much a rearranged alphabet would fuck with people?”

Alternatively,

“Was your daddy a jewel thief? Because I saw a man who looked a lot like you fleeing Harry Winston with the fuzz in hot pursuit.”

Both of these lines should be said by Cary Grant, by the way. Young Cary Grant. Not old, acid-using, sad Cary Grant.

    “I’m an astronaut.”

    The best I’ve ever gotten was a tie between “How does it feel to be hot?” and “How did you get to be so beautiful?” Close second place to “I know girls don’t like to date men who aren’t as well educated as they are, so I’m pursing a master’s degree in economics.”

    None of these came from Cary Grant, though, so they didn’t exactly go anywhere.

    The best I’ve ever received was, “Damn, you are so beautiful. You are the most beautiful girl in this bar. Except for the lady I came here with. You and her are of equal prettiness.”

    In retrospect, why didn’t I go home with that Rico Suave?

    While walking down the street in Boston a friend and I saw a guy washing windows outside of a deli and he said “Hey ladies, you like guys with shitty jobs?”
