Five Pick-Up Lines of Possibly Dubious Quality for Valentine’s Day
Are you in love but still waiting on Cupid’s help? Stuck trying to find the right words?
Cupid is overrated. Econ is here to give you the right (or wrong) words to find the man and or woman and or unknown gender variable of your life.
1. The winning lottery numbers are 2–14-27–33–39–40. Here’s my phone number. You’ll want to call me later.
This line only works 1 out of every 302 million tries. However, when it works it REALLY works and guarantees you not only a sexy but a wealthy partner.
2. ARMA virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris Italiam, fato profugus, Laviniaque venit litora, multum ille et terris iactatus et alto
If you’ve ever seen a documentary on ancient Rome one thing that stands out is the emperor is always surrounded by scantily clad women. After having taken quite some time to ponder this topic, I’ve come to the conclusion this is because he speaks Latin and is in no way related to his power, authority, post as emperor, or any other conceivable reason.
What Latin phrase should we choose to best express our feelings? I don’t know any Latin, but Vergil’s Aeneid is in Latin and is famous so I’m sure it’s a winner.

3. My job is to play quarterback, and I’m going to do that the best way I know how because I owe that to my teammates regardless of who is out there on the field with me.
You are probably wondering why this pick-up line is so successful. Well, if you already knew why and it was obvious you’d have no point in reading this article, would you?
Tom Brady not only won 7 super bowls but also married a supermodel wife. I am certain you can use lines like the one above with no context whatsoever and also win 7 super bowls and marry a supermodel.
That’s right. Line 4 is completely blank! Feel free to combine line 4 with any other pick-up line or saying at any point. Part of pick-up line 4’s appeal is its versatility. It can be used in a variety of situations. It has great applications when responding to such questions as Did you finish doing the laundry? or When are you going to help me mow the lawn?
5. I use my fifth amendment right against self-incrimination
Are you trying to find the right words to tell someone how you feel but worried you might accidentally incriminate yourself in the murder of Tupac? Remember, you can almost always use the fifth amendment (I am not a lawyer so consult an actual legal professional) to get out of many situations.
Example: Honey, did you leave the lights on after we left the house?
Response: I use my fifth amendment right against self-incrimination.
Example: Did you murder Tupac again?
Response: I use my fifth amendment right against self-incrimination
Example: Did you write a terrible article on Medium that will not actually help anyone find a boyfriend or girlfriend and will mostly just make people feel bad about being single on Valentine’s day?
Well, that’s all the time we have for today folks and happy Valentine’s day!
