We may have strange taste in mates, but we don't think the above pickup lines from comedy group Simple Pickup are all that bad.

In reality they're terrible, of course, but as far as "subliminally inserting video game titles into pickup lines for random university girls" goes, the guys above do a pretty good job of things. They're even slightly successful -- maybe not "sticking my thing in her Portal" successful, but still. Numbers were received.

We're not saying this is a challenge, but we challenge you to use these in the local young-person setting of your choice. Ladies, we expect you'll have more success than the gentlemen. And yes, we mean the Portal kind.
