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 good looks were a minute, baby, you’d be an hour.
Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?
It’s a good thing I’ve got my library card because I’m checking you out.
When I saw you from across the room, I fainted and hit my head. I’m going to need your name and number…for insurance reasons.
What’s that in your eye? Must just be a twinkle.
