OK. Let's face it. I did it again. "Fantasy & Science Fiction" magazine ran another contest, and I got sucked in. The idea was to concoct a pickup line that works in a science fictional or fantastical setting to grab the interest of the man/woman/alien being you've got your eye on.
Among my entries (you could have up to six, but I ran out steam at four), my best guess for a winner is: "You might not know this, but your clone and I used to be HOT!"
Then there were the next two: "Of course we've met! It was at the 2020 Democratic convention!" and "Wow! What an outfit! Didn't you used to be that severely retarded paraplegic?"
Lastly, no doubt fatigued, I took the I'm-with-a-bimbo approach: "Look out! Get under my arm! Let's go to my apartment! There's a neutrino coming!"
You can see why I cut it off at four.
Anyway, enjoy the silliness. It probably won't come again until the magazine has another goofy contest.
