Just For Fun: Economist Pick-Up Lines…

Disclaimer: Please don’t ever use any of these on me. (Well, maybe number 3. Maybe.) From Modified Rapture:

The Top Ten Lines for Hitting on an Economist

1. You’ve got the curves to supply my demand!

2. Let’s go to bed and try to disprove the law of diminishing marginal utility.

3. You’re my very favorite kind of moral hazard.

4. I have a feeling you really understand the “nature of the firm.”

5. Baby, I love you so much I’m willing to forgo my exit option.

6. Wanna talk about our private goods?

7. You’re an economist. I’m an economist. How about a little horizontal integration?

8. Now those are some tangible assets!

9. I’ll reveal my preferences if you will.

And the very best pick up line to catch your own economist, as well as the filthiest thing ever said in public by an economist (and I include various jokes I’ve heard at cocktail parties) is brought to us by the dynamic duo of Roberts and Papola, and comes straight from their new Hayek/Keynes rap video.

10. Bottom up or top down?

Sigh. What does it say about me that I am sad that there is no Slutsky reference here? (Though I suppose that would make for a pretty terrible pick up line.) Furthermore, I am pretty sure that the line above is not the filthiest thing ever said in public by an economist, if for no other reason than this is the menu at the bar my friends and I stopped at on the way to New York last night:

    Haha, I was about to say before I saw your comment, couldn’t we do something with Slutsky!?

    My guess is that a lot of people have already done things with Slutsky. *rim shot*

    Our intramural soccer team for the econ dept was called “Uncle Slutsky” and we almost weren’t allowed to use the name because it “sounded dirty”

    Slutsky-walking anyone!

    I would like to see my endowment in your Edgeworth box…

    @Andrew, that is absolutely great, haha!

    Lady Loch, yours should definitely be added to the list in my opinion

    Given the events of yesterday (DSK’s arrest), I think all you need to get the attention of the opposite sex is to say “I’m an economist” at the singles bar: you’ll immediately be identified as being sex-crazed…

    But why didn’t this happen 30 years ago? :-p

    Not a pick-up line…but funny response from a girl who was being hit on at a college bar: “I’m the X-axis and you’re a horizontal asymptote – you might get close but you’ll never touch this”

    If things end a bit too quickly, you can say “Sorry baby, demand exceeded supply.”

    I have learned some significant things through your site post. One other subject I would like to convey is that there are various games in the marketplace designed specially for toddler age small children. They contain pattern acceptance, colors, family pets, and forms. These typically focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This keeps little children engaged without experiencing like they are learning. Thanks
