On Twitter today, I said:
Pondering fictional character pickup lines. John Carter of Mars: “My radium rifle will really make you glow, baby.” Others?
A few answers have filtered in:
@Animakitty: Decompression alarms are going off in my head baby, ‘cuz you just took my breath away.
@etcet “I find your lack of faith… arousing.”
@Rblay I think my robot likes your laptop
@rndrum “Materialize around here often?”
And via Facebook, Jonathan Vos Post: “Sample Caltech pickup line from the all-male era, usually unsuccessful: ‘Would you rather be infra-read or ultra-violated?'”
I think we have the makings of a contest. With, like prizes and stuff. So here it is, the fictional character pickup-line contest. You know what to do, now go to it in comments.
