Do chat up lines ever work? They're supposed to either break the ice (cue the old classic of taking ice out of your glass and smashing it on the floor) with their cheesiness or be an instant hit with the recipient, but most of the time it makes people look like they are sleazy AF and can't handle a normal conversation.
I will never forget the time someone said to me that nuts are good for you and then asked me if wanted to lick his.
Grim, just really grim.
But this chat up line really takes the biscuit. On 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Jimmy Carr asked Countdown co-presenter Rachel Riley what the worst chat up line she'd ever heard was.
It was slimier than a snail.

She told the cast that she's been "playing Tinder" on her friend's phone and someone had messaged saying: "I've got a purple dome that needs a home."
I don't think anyone is going to swipe right with that kind of chat. Or maybe they are? I don't know anymore.

Comedian Jon Richardson added an equally awful chat up line to the mix: "I've got a little mouse that needs a house," while Jimmy Carr quipped: "You know what Rachel, if you're not interested, just say you're not interested."
More Chat Up Line Disasters
And yet there's no shortage of awful chat up lines out there which I've trawled the depths of the net for.
This is a truly strange one - part put down and part compliment. Clearly the idea is to treat them mean to keep 'em keen...
"Did you just fart? Because you blow me away!"
You just blew away your chances, mate.
"Do you work at Subway? 'Cause you just gave me a foot-long."
"I hear you're looking for a stud. Well, I've got the STD and all I need is you."
"I've lost my teddy bear! Can I sleep with you instead?" Decent try.
