Decade of Decadence #11: Pick Up Lines

The pick-up line was an integral part of the vast semen drenched spawning that was the 1970s.  In the days before World of Warcraft and HDTV, young adults by the tens of millions flooded local bars to perform a  mating ritual that preceded a night of recreational sex.  The pick-up line: cheesy by today's jaded and cynical standards, a harbinger of sweaty loveless fornication to the 1970s Boomer on the make.

So, without further ado, here's some great seventies pick up lines with accompanying photos. Enjoy.
You’re once, twice, three times a lady.

Hello. Cupid called. He says to tell you that he needs my heart back.

Nice dress. Can I talk you out of it?

I hope you know CPR, baby, because you take my breath away.

Is that a mirror in your pants because I can see myself in them.

Would you mind loaning me a quarter? [What for?] I want to call my mother and tell her I just met the woman of my dreams.

I think there's something wrong with my eyes...I can't take them off of you.

Baby, if you were words on a page, you'd be what they call 'FINE PRINT'!

Can I take your picture? [Why?] Because I want Santa to know exactly what I want for Christmas

Do you like to bake? [Yes.] I’d love to feel your hot-cross buns.

Do you know karate? Because your body is really kickin’.

I lost my virginity. Can I have yours?

How was heaven when you left it?

If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.

Your name must be Lucky Charms because you’re magically delicious!

Your legs must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind all night.

Do you know what has 142 teeth and holds back the Incredible Hulk? [What?] My zipper.

Baby, baby, I’m fallin’ in love, fallin’ in love again.

Are you made of apples, cause you look sweet as pie.

"Do you know what winks and screws like a tiger?" [No] Then wink.

Do you have a Band-Aid? I just scraped my knee falling for you.

If I told you that you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?

You got something on your chest: my eyes

I've been wondering, do your lips taste as good as they look?

My watch says you're not wearing pants. [Uh, yeah I am?] Oh sorry, my watch must be 10 minutes fast.

You must be a parking ticket because you've got "FINE" written all over you.

Are those space pants? Because your ass is out of this world!

Have you ever kissed a rabbit between the ears? [Pull your pockets inside out] Would you like to?

You’ve got a nice set of legs, what time do they open?

I’m new in town. Could you give me directions to your apartment?

That’s a beautiful dress. It would look great crumpled up next to my bed.

Hey, can I borrow a map? I keep on getting lost in your eyes.

Did you fart, 'cause you just blew me away.

Sorry lady, but you owe me a drink. [Why?] Because when I looked at you, I dropped mine.

[Look at the tag in her shirt] I just wanted to see if you were really made in heaven.

I may not be Fred Flintstone, but I bet I can make your Bed Rock.

  2. Making sad trombone sound...."wah, wah, wah, waaaaaaaaaaah!"

  3. Is it me, or do all of those pictures looks like they are stills from a '70s Euro porn movie?

  4. The fart one is disgusting.

    I honestly always wanted a guy to try a line on me. Just to see what it's like.

  5. Ha ha! These are classics! In the 80s, when I was in college, I once had a guy come up to me and tell me that I was the best thing since Chicklets....guess he was drunk!

  6. The best thing since Chicklets? That's pretty damn impressive. Sort of like saying your were the best thing since "Good n Plenty" or a "Bit O Honey"... high praise indeed. I hope you married him.

  7. Woohoo, the "kiss a rabbit between the ears" one! LOLS, very clever 1970's very sleazy too!

  10. Guys actually said things like that? E-gad!

  11. My favorites are:

    What are you doing here?
    I thought you were in Paris modeling Versace's
    Spring Collection.

    What's your favorite breakfast cereal.
