Self-referential pick-up lines

"If I were to ask you for sex, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?"

A version of this pick-up line has apparently been the title of a conference presentation, alongside such presentations as "A New Look at Falsification in Light of the Duhem-Quine Thesis" and "Ontological and Ethical Issues of Androids".

See here (or here) for an appropriate response.

"It would not. If you were to ask me for sex, my answer would be the simple, monosyllabic utterance 'no', while my answer to this question is clearly much longer and more complicated".

I think you need some way of individuating answers semantically.

I don't think this pick up line or any other line is going to 'work', unless its meant to break the ice with a laugh, and then followed up with some good conversation. Still, they can be funny though, check these pick up lines out for a good laugh.
