I can not believe I would ever use any set theory in any comment. Must have been a clone, they come in here.

Why don't you post some more pickup lines?

I once used set theory in a wedding speech, but the couple were both mathematicians, conveniently having last names beginning with A and B respectively. I wouldn't recommend it in a chat up line.

What is a wedding speech?

At a wedding, people stand up and make a speech. Traditionally, the Best Man's speech is an attempt to embarrass the Groom by telling stories from his past. It is not acceptable to embarrass the Bride, as it might spoil the 'Best Day of Her Life'.

For my daughter's I made a slide show. When my son got married I used a whiteboard and based my speech around the Venn diagram. They were both intended to be funny and I think I succeeded. Guests still talk about it.

hi Agnishom,

Alice and Bob?

It wasn't my wedding . Try re-reading my posts. All the evidence is there except the name of the bride, which I will not say.

Then, we had the dance. Trevor had some wonderful moves. Some people have taken pictures, may be I will get one in the comment. Then, Trevor tried to convince Anita to dance, but she still sat there in the corner. (By the way, I wish Trevor asked me for help, I write awesome [pickup lines](http://www.mathisfunforum.com/viewtopic.php?pid=264926#p264926) )

Amy, when I look in your eyes and you're looking back in mine, everything feels not quite normal because I feel stronger and weaker at the same time. I feel excited and, at the same time, terrified. The truth is, I don't know what I feel, except...I know what kind of man I want to be.

Hmm? Guys pick up girls. She got it the wrong way around. That is the law of Bumpkinland.

Yes, in bumpkinland the guys use the pickup lines.

When you look like her she has no need for phony lines.
