oh, dear. oh, dear. let us start with the title. what is a 'pick-up' line? you can try the wiki if you like but here is the dictionary meaning: pickup perhaps i do not know english well or the culture; but yet, i do not know anyone using a 'pick-up' line, if it was not an innuendo for sex or dating. now go back to your lines and read them in that context and you will see what we people from the east, the unable-to-ridicule-humiliate-ourselves kind can see. astaghfirullah. and we debate the 'offensiveness?'
