Maxim magazine says there's nothing more awkward than chatting up a stranger. Unless you use one of these opening lines.
We could go to my place. You'd really like my parents.
I bet you've got a terrific scream.
You look really smart. Wanna dance?
So, who's the dude?
You know, my dream is to one day open a place like this. Or maybe just work at a place like this. Or just work.
I'd buy you a drink, but a gay guy stole my wallet this afternoon.
Is it just me, or does something smell really bad around here?
Want to see how blind people recognize each other?
I'll bet you actually look a lot like your mother. Actually, I know you do.
Sometimes, when I close my eyes at night, I can see through my ears.
What kind of soap do you use? 'Cause you smell really clean.
I know what you're thinking, and yes -- that is urine in my hair.
I can never figure out women. One minute, they're ignoring you at a bar -- the next, they're dialing 911.
I'll tell you what -- let's get out of here and go to this place I know. We'll need to pick up a mattress along the way.
Want to see my extra toe? It's upstairs in a box.
I dress up as Barney the dinosaur at shopping malls. No, it's not a job. I just like to do it.
Hollywoodlife.com claims the San Francisco Giants and the World Series ruined Kanye West's birthday plans for Kim Kardashian. A source tells the site: “Kanye really wanted to do it big! He had secretly planned on flying Kim and her entire family up to San Francisco’s AT&T Park, so he could showcase his profound love for her and their daughter, North West. Kanye wanted to have a stage there, invite just family and a few of Kim’s closest friends, and perform a mini concert just for her. Kanye had it all planned. He even had a reel made of what their life has been like over the past year. He wanted the video to play on the jumbo screen at the park, as his song, ‘Bound 2,’ played in the background. He wanted to sing to Kim in center field, while Nori ran all over the place. And when it was all over, he wanted a helicopter to come down, swoop them up, and give him, Kim and Nori a tour of the bay from above. Kanye wanted this so bad that he even called the Giants’ CFO, Larry Baer, as well as the team’s front office, to see if they could hold off on preparing the field and everything else that they do for the World Series until today, so that he could have the entire stadium to himself for Kim’s birthday. They obviously told him no, but that didn’t stop him from trying.''
TT: I used to think he/she was smart until they ______.
