Pickings from the Pick-up Line Collection: Part 1

The Origins

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.

The Pickings

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?
