We've all seen or heard someone attempting to chat up a potential love interest and edged a little closer to see it turn into a slow and painful catastrophe.

Fortunately for us, and unfortunately for these men, we can watch this miserable effort over and over because they've made their move on Facebook. Most tragically of all, the interested parties are hitting on a 19th century painting of a naked woman.

The painting - which belongs to an artist called William-Adolphe Bouguereau - was posted on to the Facebook group 'World paintings' in April 2017 but it resurfaced when freelance journalist Kitty Wenham tweeted it with the caption 'men hitting on a painting'.

The picture is of a young woman who looks like she's drying herself off and it's (rather surprisingly) titled 'After The Bath'. She is obviously naked, because that's usually how it works when you have a bath.

It seems some people couldn't contain their excitement as the comments came in thick and fast with men passing on their numbers to her and asking her to message them on WhatsApp... well, this is awkward.

One person, whose name we've hidden for their own good, wrote: "Hello sexy dear friend how are you," before someone responded: "Made of paint, how are you?"

Another wrote: "Very cheeky woman show body but vagene i think very sexy sexy," I mean... I'm sure she's delighted with the acceptance of her body and, yes, that includes her 'vagene'.

Because we could do this all day, someone else commented saying: "Babe here is your chest so nice baby love to opening your cloth some evening..... lovely milk dumplings," you read that right - 'milk dumplings'.

Replying to Kitty's tweet, someone wrote: "Men should exclusively hit on 19th century paintings. Better for everyone." Another joked: "19th century imaginary women never message you back smh".

Someone else mocked up a conversation between one of these men and the painting, saying: "It would never work between the two of us. You're 25 years old and I'm oil on canvas."

Well, it's time: stop the world, I really want to get off now.
