The Style Invitational Asks for Losing Pickup Lines From Particular People or Professions

In this week’s Washington Post Style Invitational, the Empress Pat Myers asked:

In Week 1357 we asked for pickup lines to be said by particular people, or people in various professions. At least a dozen of you had a dentist offering to fill the person’s cavity, and a librarian “checking out” the desired one. More creative but also submitted by too many people: Houston Astro: Hey, baby, I already know your sign.

The winner:

Orthopedic surgeon: “What’s a joint like that doing in a nice girl like you?” (Alan Duxbury, Carlisle, Pa.)
