We're not sure where bad pickup lines started, but somehow they've become almost an art form. (Or at least the bad ones.) How do you craft something full of puns and nonspecific compliments that's cheesy enough that the other person might assume there's some depth underneath your one-liner? We're not sure, but people manage to do it. What we really want to know is: Have any of these ever worked? Was it only ironically?

Anyway, we hope these pickup lines will give you a laugh. Just promise never to (seriously) use them.

These pickup lines are so bad, they're almost good.
