Steampunk Pick-up Lines

Doctor Fantastique’s Show of Wonders has a fabulous list of steampunk-powered pick-up lines:

My favorites:

“Is that a dirigible in your trousers or are you just happy to see me?”

“Do you swing towards Edison or Tesla cause either way you’re making me spark.”

And now for one of my very own:

“You know what they say about me? I’m made of wood.”

So…if you were partying like it was 1899, what would your steampunk pick-up line and / or lines be?

Make Your Own Fortune Cookie

Fortune cookie - A man with twenty fingers cannot necessarily type twice as fast.

Inspired by George Takei’s delightful fortune cookie photo, I immediately set out to create one of my own. That’s when I discovered Jim Blackler’s Fortune Cookie Image Generator:

The only thing that could make this even better is if it let you generate the cookies themselves. But it’s still pretty nifty as-is.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some fortunes to write, for as wise man say: ancient proverb of tomorrow is created…today. :p

(If you want the fortune above on a T-shirt, you’re in luck.)
