For as long as there have been single people looking for a relationship (or at least a date for Saturday night), there have been cheesy pick-up lines. Our Neanderthal ancestors used them—you can be sure some Caveman tried a line like “Can I hiber-mate with you through the Ice Age?”—and we continue to use them today, even though apps like Tinder and Bumble have replaced face-to-face first encounters for many singles.
