Okay..even I think that's cheesy.
 
2007-07-18 01:55:07 PM  
That's a Yabba Dabba Don't.

Triumph of hope over experience is a pretty standard delusion most people have. With women it's thinking that you can change him, with men it's thinking that you can get into her pants in the first place.

but on the other hand, saying "I may not be Fred Flintstone, but I drive a Porsche and make a 7-figure salary" works surprisingly well.

That's right, flashing a wad of bling is fool proof.

"I may not be a janitor, but I can make your piso pretty mojado, if you know what I'm sayin. Cuidado."

i'm not saying it's foolproof, but depending on who you're after it's not a bad start.

Between that comment and your profile, I have only one thing to say:

How you doin'?
 
2007-07-18 02:08:57 PM  
Hmm. That "Flintstone" line always worked for me. My wife loved it...

/I keed
//or do I?

You know what would look great next to that outfit?

The rug on my bedroom floor.

Hard to cook long distance... wouldn't mind trying, but I'm sure it'd get cold.

the lines so do work, but you got to back them up with good looks and more humor. I have used many of those quite a few times and yes they absolutely have worked. Personal fave "if i could change the alphabet I would put U and I together"

I may not be Batman, but if you have a "goth ham" I will read the complete works of Lord Byron to it, remove the bone, and sex myself up with within the delicious folds of its salty preserved meats.

You never fail to crack me up!
You bastard.
 
2007-07-18 05:15:03 PM  
Would you like to go to the pants party.
 
2007-07-18 05:32:51 PM  
Fark me if I'm wrong, but you want to take me home with you, don't you.
 
2007-07-18 05:32:54 PM  
You look prutier then a new set of snow tires!

That's the funniest thing I've ever read!

My name is Fred Flintstone and I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

/will make any woman's Bed Rock, Yabba-dabba-do!
 
2007-07-18 05:33:24 PM  
I'm going to have to call the cops right now. You've stolen my heart.

2007-07-18 05:34:21 PM  
Most of my pick ups start with "are you a cop?"
 
2007-07-18 05:34:23 PM  
Geez I wonder why when I was driving by a teen on the side of the road and shouted "Hey, two-dollar hooker ... want a ride?" did not work?
 
2007-07-18 05:34:23 PM  
kingMountain...

You had me at hello!
 
2007-07-18 05:34:24 PM  
It works if you club her in the head after delivering the line.
 
2007-07-18 05:34:59 PM  
Well...DUH

Everyone knows women have no sense of humor!!
 
2007-07-18 05:35:18 PM  
Are you a parking ticket? Because you have fine written all over you.

"I'm not attracted to strong women."

"Sexist."

"Not really; I'm not attracted to strong men either."

I suppose it depends on who you are hitting on and whether they are the kind of person who would find that kind of thing cute and charming or the kind of person that would find that boorish and stupid.

I'm not going to say which kind I am.

Is that a quarter on the ground or can I just stare down your shirt without a pretense?
 
2007-07-18 05:37:04 PM  
"If you've lost your virginity, can I have the box it came in?"

barely beats out

"Women are like parking spaces, we all want the handicapped ones."

or even

"I put on my robe and wizard hat."
 
2007-07-18 05:37:37 PM  
the humorous ("Hi, how do you like me so far").

...that's humorous how exactly?
 
2007-07-18 05:38:07 PM  
So it's really isn't so easy then?

The best pickup line is

I want to crawl inside you and eat my way out!

/ooo so spicy!

Are you free tonight or will it cost me?
 
2007-07-18 05:40:18 PM  
Excuse me, do you have any raisins? No? Well then how about a date?

How YOU doing?

Would you like to come to the pants party?

FTFA "If you look like George Clooney, you may be able to get away with a whole range of things"

Except maybe for that Batman movie, I don't think he should get away with that.

Keith Moon: Would you like to come to the pants party?

What am I missing on this one? You are the second person to post that.
 
2007-07-18 05:41:51 PM  
FTFA (last line): "If you look like George Clooney, you may be able to get away with a whole range of things," Dr Caryl said.

Pretty much sums it all up, doesn't it?

"I left the money on the table."
 
2007-07-18 05:42:05 PM  
One of my drinking buddies is awesome at this. He'll deliberately say the most outlandish, disgusting, appalling things to a random girl, and he'll still end up with her number, and 99% of the time, in bed with her.

You don't smell bad for a fat chick.
