[The following is presented as an example of a "successful" pick-up line to be used in an art museum.]
“Stare at bizarre abstract for five minutes, then nod in judgement, poking cheek in tongue.
YOU: My five-year-old brother has a better notion of line and perspective.
SHE: (eyebrows raised): Better than Klee?
YOU: You don’t believe me? Look! (Pull folded charcoal line drawing of city skyline from your coat pocket.) Have you ever seen such a display of sweeping vision in conjunction with a draftsman’s precision…
This line may be a bit shaky unless your kid brother is in the same league with Klee. But maybe not, because she probably knows nothing about art. After all, Cosmopolitan sent her to the museum to look for men, not for culture.”
Well, obviously. It’s not like “culture” is going to teach you 101 ways to please a man.
Have a particularly bad pick-up line to share? Please comment!
