Worst pick-up lines I've actually witnessed!

The following are a few lines that have been thrown my way recently:

I've never been with a woman, but I am willing to make you my first. I was standing in a gay bar when I heard this one.  It still didn't work despite the context.

You need to see a doctor for that cold.  I just happen to be a doctor and I see my friends for free! I got this pick-up line via twitter while I was tweeting about my stuffy head.  Is your office at 000 Dead-end Lane, Loserville U.S.A?

I'm moving/visiting/passing through/could fly to Tampa and wanted to know if you would like to get acquainted/hook-up/fuck/meet for drinks? Sound familiar? I get these pick-up attempts quite often. Men think that just because I write about enjoying casual sex that I want to have sex with a stranger who is willing to fly to Tampa just for sex.

Are those real? Whoever is spreading the rumor that women like to be accosted by men clambering to cop a quick feel on some beautifully enhanced bosoms by rudely asking this question should stick to what they're good at—-masturbating. This line only works on strippers, but you can basically say anything to a stripper and she'll just smile, nod, and ask if you want to have some fun in the backroom.

What is the worst line you've ever heard or attempted?

While I'm not so conceited and arrogant that I expect men and women to fawn over me with a wealth of compliments, I do believe that the occasional flirtation or pick-up line is a kind of compliment provided the right circumstances.  However, it seems every time I'm at a bar, swingers club, or even work I can't get away from attempts to gain my attention with recycled pick-up lines that the users believe are witty.  Some of these lines wouldn't even work to pick up a bus stop hooker. Most anything can work to break the ice with a potential love connection. The problem is that some men think these lines reflect positively on their sense of humor. They don't. All these lines show is that these men are stupid enough to think they will work. The only time a bad pick-up line can work is if the line is so bad it would take balls to actually use it, and if the speaker is obviously joking.
