what is your favorite operations research pickup line?

Blogs dedicated to nerdy pickup lines featuring Ryan Gosling have sprung up recently. My favorite is Biostatistics Ryan Gosling!!! (HT to my colleague Dan Ream). These blogs feature a nerdy pickup line with a (dreamy?) picture of Ryan Gosling. I featured a couple of the pictures below. Nerdy humor seems all the rage these days, and I say bring it on.

This makes me wonder if anyone has used an operations research pickup line, you know, in reality. If you have, do tell. I have no experience with operations research pickup lines (either giving or receiving).

If you’re like me and find the whole topic of pickup lines to be generally offensive, I recommend this podcast episide on pickup artist tactics from the How Stuff Works podcast Stuff Mom Never Told You.
