Pick up lines are hit and miss at the best of times

YOU ever hear the pick up line "Don't I know you from somewhere?"

I had a guy approach me once with this. It backfired.

I worked out he was mates with my neighbour from when I lived in a country town in New South Wales.

Whoops.

Oh well. The lines of communication were open and we continued to chat for a while.

Recently,  a beauty product company put the call out for Australia's Smoothest Pick Up Line.

Australian hair removal company, Nad's, offered $5000 prize money and receive entries from the Northern Territory to Tasmania.

Some of the best witty one liners included these slick conversation openers.

Do you know what my jumper is made out of? Boyfriend material.

Do you believe in love at first sight, or do I have to walk past you again?

Excuse me, I've lost my phone number, can I have yours?!

Do you know how much a polar bear weighs? I've heard it's enough to break the ice.

However, there was one savvy pick up line that stood out among the rest.

Anna Whitham from Western Australia won the  Nad's  Search for Australia's Smoothest Pick Up Line and picked up a $5,000 prize with the following super smooth pick up line.

"Is your name Wally? 'Cause someone like you is hard to find"

"I'm thrilled with the amount of entries we have received, it was definitely a tough decision in the end to pick a winner,'' CEO and founder of Nad's Sue Ismiel said.

"Australians are one smooth bunch!

We chose this winning entry because it showed creativity with a hint of cheeky humour that Australian's are known for.''

What is the best/worst pick up line you have ever heard or used?
