I now have official proof that pick up lines are just the worst. I mean, I knew that anyway, but the people at Cut Video have gone around the world looking for pick up lines and it's like they're all competing to be the most awful lines. I don't know how to pick up women, but it's not this. People talk about the best pick up lines, but really, are they ever not awful? I mean, here are some I have heard in my own life:
"Did it hurt?... Being so classy."
"Nice teeth, looks like you brush 'em."
"Nice knees, want to go to Atlantic City?"
"Oi, oi, oi!"
That last one is a speciality of the United Kingdom, normally from a creepy guy following you in his car while you walk home because there's nothing aggressive or predatory about that. As you can tell pick up lines are maybe my least favorite things ever, combined with the entitlement they're delivered with and the assumption that you're going to be so won over you'll burst into a spontaneous blow job on the spot. Have they ever worked?! Probably not, but that certainly doesn't stop people from trying.
Check out seven pick up lines from around the world and lament the fact that these poor people can't come up with anything better.
Here are all the winners:
