“The way to a woman’s heart is the right pick-up line,” said nobody ever. Nevertheless, male suitors take it upon themselves time and time again to try and woo a lady with a trite motley of witty phrases. Oh, cheesy orators, when will you learn that honesty is the best route?
With singles looking to change their Facebook relationship statuses as quickly as possible, you may have noticed the staggering number of desperate wooers on the prowl. Accordingly, there has been a rapid influx of pick-up lines around campus — some good, some bad and some just plain ugly. Whether it’s a psychology major delving into your subconscious with talk of Freud and Wolpe or that computer savvy student threatening to find his way into your hard drive, the cheesiness factor is through the roof this week. Here is a list of some of the most original pick-up lines in the book.
Some of the pick-up lines were from real UC Berkeley students or from us at The Daily Clog. A few legendary lines were just too great not to include. The Clog is not responsible for any loss of dignity or tarnished social reputation.
Computer science: “You make my software turn into hardware!” “Is your name Wi-Fi? Because I’m feeling a connection.” “Your homepage or mine?” “Are you sitting on the F5 key? Because your backside is refreshing.” “You must be an angel because your texture mapping is divine!”
Economics: “You’re a hot commodity.” “Hershey’s produces a surplus of 2 million kisses per day, and all I’m asking for is one from you.” “The national debt isn’t the only thing that’s rising.” “Baby, you’re not an option, — you’re totally a future!”
English: “Babe, if you were words on a page, you’d be what they call fine print.” “I have ‘Great Expectations’ for our future tonight.” “The sun isn’t the only thing that also rises.”
Legal studies: “If being sexy were a crime, you’d be guilty as charged!” “Hello, I’m a thief, and I’m here to steal your heart.” “I don’t know if I have a standing, but I’d love to court you.” “Why don’t you take a look at my briefs?” “I love you beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Mathematics: “Can I have your number?” “You and I would add up better than a Riemann sum.” “Hey baby, what’s your sine?” “Are you a 45 degree angle? Because you’re acute-y.” “Honey, you’re sweeter than pi.” “I’d like to estimate the slope of those curves.”
Physics: “Are you a magnet? Because you sure are attracting me.” “You’ve got more curves than a circle.” “Wanna dance? I can really put your inertia in motion.” “Can I have your significant digits?”
