We’ve all experienced it: that pick-up line that is so absurdly awful you can’t help but laugh on the inside even as you are arranging your face and body language into the sternest and most no-nonsense weirdo-repelling expression you can muster. Unfortunately for the people who use them, these lines rarely work for their intended purpose, but they are certainly good for some chuckles after the fact.

Gallery: The Creepiest Pick-Up Lines From A 1973 'Humor' Book Published By Playboy

Hey fellas! Would you like to be funny not in the next life, and not in the one after that, but in your own lifetime? Look no further than this book of jokes and anecdotes that I found at a thrift store over the weekend, which was published by Playboy Press in 1973.

Or maybe it was the part when I just remembered that women should never their homes. Oh, wait. That was the entire video. On that note, I would like to invite you all to Sunday night puzzle club at my apartment. I assume you will be there, if your boyfriend is not busy controlling you. More »

The Heart Monitor: Top 10 Worst, Overused, Unsuccessful Pick-up Lines

Flirting — an evolved iteration of the mating ritual — is a common sport among singles of all species. Birds flaunt their feathers, dogs sniff each others’ butts, and men use pick-up lines.

Pick-up lines have been around since the cavemen (“Hey baby, I invented fire — can you light mine?). Some of them actually work, such as “Can I buy you a drink?” or “I’d love to take you out. Can I have your number?” But most men don’t rely on such banal, successful lines. They prefer the embarrassingly bad lines that are so cheesy and inappropriate, it’s no wonder they’re still single.
