Pick-Up Lines and Terapins, Turtles, Tortoises

Hey are you from Tennessee?
Because you're the only Ten-I-See.

Do you believe in polar bears?
Neither do I but I just broke the ice.

Tacky pick-up lines = Awkward turtle.

Speaking of turtle. 
Have I told you about Mr. T's pick-up line? 
Talk about awkward turtle.

Boy meets girl. Boy asks for girl's number. Boy calls girl and invites her over.
Girl obliges and they spend a night sitting at their counter laughing.
Same old story everyone else has got.
However, his pick-up line really sets this man apart.

Chatter...
Mr. T: "So want to know a cool fact?"
Future Mrs. T: "Sure." 
Mr. T: "My dad has 150 turtles."
Future Mrs. T: "Heh. Heh...... Are you serious?" 
Mr. T: "Yeah, serious." 
Furture Mrs. T: "Well. Oh." 
Mr. T: "When we go there you can count them."
Swift change of subject.

Sure enough when I met his dad and family, I also met 150 turtles. 


One being this gentle giant of a Galapagos turtle, Gus. 
These are like the tortoises that you see in the zoo.

So men, take your notes, women love turtles in mass numbers.
Okay, maybe I lied.
Women like men with confidence, even about their absurd lives.
And I am a sucker for absurdity.
