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.
Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?
Your library books must be overdue because you’ve got FINE written all over you!
Do you sell maps? Because every time I look in your eyes I get lost.
Is your dad a baker? Because you’ve got some really hot buns.
