If You’ve Seen One…

So, I didn’t come up with this, but it’s clever:

If you’ve seen one shopping center, you’ve seen a mall.

Pickings from the Pick-up Line Collection: Part 7

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.

Macbeth! And Hamlet! Shakespeare on Facebook

It took me 2 years, 9 months, 18 days to read the complete works of William Shakespeare. I mentioned my reading frequently on Facebook. It seems that everyone has something to say about Macbeth and Hamlet!

The one thing I learned from reading Macbeth:
