Pick-Up Lines

Every year Harlequin puts out a Romance Report, with survey results on various romance related things from all over the world. This year's theme was "The Encounter" and one of the sections was devoted to pick-up lines from around the world. Here are some of them:
  • Well, here I am. What were you other two wishes? (Australia)
  • All those curves and me with no brakes. (Mexico)
  • Are you a parking ticket, because you have FINE written all over you! (USA)
  • Do you have a band-aid? Because I scraped my knees when I fell for you. (Canada)
  • I'm not actually this tall. I'm sitting on my wallet. (Japan)
  • I lost my number, can I borrow yours? (U.K.)
Anybody else got any others to share? Currently, I think the one from Japan is ranking as my favorite. What's yours? (And seriously, do these EVER work?!)

There was a country song out a few years ago called "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?" Of course there were the spin-off t-shirts.

Other good ones:

"I've seem to have lost my number, can I have yours?"

"Hi, I'm Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me."

Lol Marilyn :) Actually, I think I have a copy of that song. I like it!

One of my favorites (obviously American) is:

"Do you wash your underwear in Windex, because I can see myself in your pants."

I do like the Japan one though.
