Steampunk Pick-up Lines for Wooing that Special Lady (or Gentleman)

Every month, I hold a contest for the Tampa Bay Steampunk Society. For January, we decided on a “cheesy, steampunk pick-up line” contest. Here’s what the TBSS came up with:

  • “Would you like to adjourn to my aerial flyer and make my steam pipes build up pressure?”
  • “Care to retire to my study and see my etchings?”
  • “Would you care to accompany me to my dwellings to gaze upon my tesla coil?”
  • “Is that a dirigible in your trousers or are you just happy to see me?”
  • “Why don’t you come up and see me when all I have on is my aetheric powered audio replication engine! With apologies to Mae West.”
  • “You must be wearing steam powered leggings cause you’ve been running through my dreams all night.”
  • “Wanna see if my Ramrod can pack your powder?”
  • “Care to come over for some Hysteria Relief?
  • “Good afternoon sir is that an oscilloscope in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”
  • “Pardon me for my forwardness Madame, does this handkerchief smell of ether to you?”
  • “Did you just jump out of broiler? Cause you’re looking quite STEAMY in that getup there.”
  • “I can make something else besides your goggles fog up.”
  • “Want to board my airship, dear? My personal Mile High club is currently looking for new members.”
  • “Madame! I do believe you have caused me to spring a cog!”
  • “Madame, you make the southern part of my union suit want to secede from the north.”
  • “Darlin’, you’re steaming up my glasses!”
  • “Let me know if you need any help getting out of that corset.”
  • “I would like to dip my Nautilus in your H.G. Wells!”
  • “Do you swing towards Edison or Tesla cause either way you’re making me spark.”
  • “Climb aboard my time machine, beautiful lady, and let’s see how many dimensions we can explore!”
  • “You know, there are no sea monsters on MY submarine.”
  • “I have a sprocket hidden somewhere on my person. If you find it you can have it!”
  • “You can dock your hot air balloons at my port any day!”
  • “Your bustle must be filled with hydrogen cause it’s giving me a rise!”
  • “The game is afoot – want to play Watson to my Holmes and see what clues we can uncover?”
  • “I’ll bet my ascot and your bustle could make beautiful music together!”
  • “You look just like a girlfriend I once assembled…”
  • “There must be something wrong with my monocle. I can’t keep my eye off your glorious caboose.”

Do you have any you’d like to add?

    I love the Hysteria Relief line. This is a funny idea, the League of Cincinnati Steampunks may have to hold a similar contest.

    That’s for liking the Hysteria Relief line Ginny. In fact it’s the entire purpose of my persona. Feel free to check out my Facebook page and tell all your friends to “like” it too. It’s all My-tongue-in-your-cheek humor.
