It’s a typical Saturday night at a popular neighborhood watering hole and the walls are lined with questionable suitors eyeing the singles at the bar. A woman wanders over to order a drink with her friends and suddenly, as if appearing out of thin air, one of the suitors knocks her out with, "Is your name fajita? 'Cuz you’re sizzling." Clearly she's in for a long evening.
Cheesy pickup lines are the bread and butter for the game of any person that has very little game to speak of. It’s tough to imagine a scenario where laying a line as cringe-worthy as "Hey baby, can I butter your biscuit?" on a potential mate would make them fall madly in love, but that doesn’t keep the average person from trying it out at some point or another.
That said, for the hopeless romantics (and food lovers) out there who can’t help but be convinced that the right pickup line could someday hook the love of their life, The Daily Meal is here to lend a hand. Take a look through this collection of one-liners crafted to tug at the heartstrings of fellow food lovers everywhere.
