Writers and perpetual gigglers live for bad pick-up lines, which inspire knee-slapping party conversations and are great story material. But some passes are so terrible or cheesy that you can’t help pitying the deliverer. Take for example the guy who told me at a party two years ago, “If you’d been in the Holocaust, your kind would have been exterminated for extreme hotness.” Not only is that offensive because I did have relatives perish in concentration camps (for being Jewish, not attractive), but also because this individual used the Holocaust to spark romance. There’s little hope for someone who would do that.
Same goes for married soap actor Brian Presley, who reportedly put the moves on model Melissa Stetten during a flight to Los Angeles, said they were “brought together” by God, and prompted her to tweet about the experience. One of the tweets reads, “‘Brian just said ‘like us sitting here right now, taking about where we’re from, it’s like divine interception’. right, interception.” Because what could be more holy than a germ-infested, claustrophobia-inducing airplane? He said all this after downing three Heinekens, so he either has a low alcohol tolerance or no game. We’ll go with the latter. Here are a few terrible pick-up lines uttered by famous men.
