When I was in college, my roommates and I got tired of looking at the bare cinder block walls of our apartment.
So, we started writing down and hanging up all the cheesy pick-up lines we knew or had heard. Our friends and visitors contributed their own cheesy pick-up lines to the wall.
Pretty soon, our Pick-up Line Wall of Shame became something of a miniature tourist attraction in our apartment building.
As I was going through my quote file the other day—looking for something else entirely—I came across a rubber-banded bundle of paper that was the remains of the long-since dismantled wall of pick-up lines.
Because reading them made me laugh, I here present choice selections from the Pick-up Line Wall of Shame, circa 2003.
If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put “U” and “I” together.
Wouldn’t we look cute on a wedding cake together?
Kill me if you must, but death, next to love, is a trivial thing.
(Name the movie! Extra points to the guy who uses a movie quote as pick-up line.)
If I followed you home, would you keep me?
Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?
