#TradPickUpLines

This is what non-tweeters are missing. Sarah, Jackie and Kassie started this hilarious trend for "trad" pick-up lines. If you're a traditional ("trad") person, or if you just want to see what being a "trad" is all about, check out these hilarious snippets.

UPDATE: Read Sarah's explanation of the catalyst for #TradPickUpLines, including the first few:

  • Would you like to glorify God through traditional gender roles with me?
  • Excuse me, I think you have the rib I'm missing. Would you like to help me promote the culture of life?
  • You were created to be my helpmeet. Let's subdue the earth together 
  • Let's raise a quiver full of traditionalist culture warriors. 
  • Would you like to break the bread that you baked with me?
  • Would you like to not practice NFP with me? 
  • Let's change your headcovering from white to black.(Married women wear black mantillas.)

They're in chronological order (with two exceptions, which I have numbered in the order in which you should read them) with the most recent at the top:

I love it! Thanks for doing all the work of putting these together!

Homeboy McCoy said...

yeah, these were fun!

Anthony S. Layne said...

I noticed you got busted on the hand-holding! :^)=) This was indeed fun. Couple verged on the racy, and a couple verged on the patronizing — c'mon, folks! Trads aren't all sedevacantists! — but good fun nonetheless.

Sarah said...

Thanks for the chronological anthology! I was too busy with homework to keep track of it all, but it was great seeing all the Catholic creativity on Twitter.
