I thought it was about time for some light relief, so I bring you a competition for worst philosophical pick-up lines. (Since it’s meant to be light relief, the thought is to go for funnily bad ones rather than e.g. sexually harassing ones– that’s a different contest.)
They don’t have to be real, though it’s especially amusing if you or someone you know has either used them or had them used on them. They can be ones misguided philosophers come up with, or ones non-philosophers think philosophers might fall for. I’ll kick it off with two, one of which was tried on a friend of mine and one of which was tried on me:
“You’re a philosopher? Let me tell you my philosophy of lurrve.”
“You’re a philosopher? Say something deep.”
I’m *sure* you can do better than these.
Prize for the winner: everlasting fame (pseudonymous, if you like) on Feminist Philosophers.) Leave your contributions in comments!
