  •  Remember the old Sesame Street gag... (5+ / 0-)

    Guy in a rain coat opens one side displaying the letter "R" and says:

    "Hey you... psst.... Wanna buy an 'R'?"

    "Excuse me?"

    "Wanna bay an 'R'?"

    "An 'R'?"

    "Shhh... right ... right"

    It was one of my favorite pick up lines 27 years ago when I was rooky-recruit trolling the E-club in Mirimar, California.  Girls would always look at me like I was nuts (which I was) and then finally catch on. Then they would politely laugh, wonder what kind of nutcase was trying desperately to hit on them and eventually realize I was harmless enough to have a drink with.  I may have been strange but I was original and what is more innocent then getting pick up lines from sesame street.  

    (disclaimer: all prospective targets for my flirtations with said sesame street pick -up lines were over 18 which was verified by the security at the e-club just to make sure no one thought I was patrolling elementary schools)
