I assumed that if GPT-3 generated pickup lines, they would be terrible because they would be something like human pickup lines. Instead, they are terrible for more delightful reasons.

@janellecshane @witchy these are all things we have said to each other at one point or another

"I love you. I don't care if you're a doggo in a trenchcoat."


@janellecshane wow this makes me want to be someone's 5th sticker

@janellecshane "You have a lovely face. Can I put it on an air freshener? I want to keep your smell close to me always."
Oh no.
"You know what I like about you? Your... Long... Legs..."
Is ... is that a joke? I guess it might've just copied that from somewhere, but still, nice!
"I once worked with a guy that looked just like you. He was a normal human with a family. Are you a normal human with a family?"
The most awkward way of asking "Are you single?" I've ever seen.
"You look like a stealth assassin from the clouds."
YES. As in "Yes, AI, I will marry you."
"Do you like...pancakes?"
This is actually pretty cute!

@janellecshane Okay I maintain the fangs one is actually a /really good/ pickup line!

@IceWolf @janellecshane same with the pancakes one. I'll try this out on my wife to see if we'll end up *doubly* married.

@janellecshane @alcinnz Wait! I just read your blog post all the way to the end, and the last pickup line is my new all-time favorite!

“Can I see your parts list?”

We have a winner!!!

a lot of these would get me:
1. You have the most beautiful fangs I've ever seen.
2. You look like a stealth assassin from the clouds.
3. Do you like...pancakes? (FUCK YES TAKE ME TO THE DINER)
4. You're looking good today. Want snacks?

apparently I like to either look fierce af:

"You have the most beautiful fangs I've ever seen. You look like a stealth assassin from the clouds."

or need food:

"You're looking good today. Want snacks? Do you like...pancakes?"

@janellecshane not going to lie...the one about pancakes would probably work on me.

@janellecshane The one about having a lovely face and keeping it close (second from last) smacks of bad japanese-to-English translation.

@janellecshane tag yourself I'm "I'll briefly explain the plot of Back to the Future ll to you"

@janellecshane I think you found the Matt Groening brain process
I want moar

@janellecshane If I was available I think I would go for any of those, especially the B2TF line.

@janellecshane Realized that most or all of these are especially applicable to the furry dating scene.

@janellecshane @nathan I would actually entertain some of these just for the novelty of it 🤣
