The Worst of the Occupy Wall Street Pickup Lines Hashtag

OWS pickup .png
Another day, another meh Twitter hashtag about a current event. #OWSPickupLines is humming along, fed by unfunny people and some choice Andrew Breitbart contributions. Clever puns and jokes about Occupy Wall Street that don't involve some variation of "hippies smell bad and don't have jobs" are few and far between, even though there could be so much potential here! Some of the star entries:

Being coddled is probably what made the OWS protesters lazy and entitled in the first place so making fun of them may in well, help them out.

What's really funny is if Mike Paterno and William Greely actually expect us to believe that they get laid. 

Yeah, just went over to the twitter feed and they're predominantly unfunny. The ones listed above are definitely the best of the lot.

Apparently being "informed" means blogging your frustrations instead of getting off your ass and trying to actually have an impact.

They're funny because they defend ruinous corporate greed from criticism by informed citizens with the use of false stereotypes.

Hey Fartface, Stereotypes don't just happen, and get reinforced over and over and over..if they're not true to some degree.

mexican carlos slim is the richest man in the world---where's the protests?

mexican heroin cartels are worth billions; talk about corperate greed---no protests.

even back in the 1960s there were diseased hippie chicks, and scumbag hippies living on communes---like charlie manson....and then there were the hells angels' libs loved.

and listen to the beatles song, TAXMAN----even the beatles hated paying taxes, way back in the 1960s hippy era!

They are funny because they make fun of the spoiled little brats at the hippyfest.  These people dont want to work, they just want everything handed to them.

Yeah! Like the stereotype about Tea Baggers like you being self-important, hateful, old, white male douchebags who use obnoxious volume to hide their deeply closeted homosexuality -- it's totally true!!!

Mexican cartels don't get protested because they don't use pepper spray and CS gas on their opponents -- they kill them, they kill their relatives, and then kill a few dozen innocent bystanders for good measure.

You make a single correct point in comparing Wall Street to Mexican heroin cartels.

Sill not funny, even after lightening up. It's not that they're offensive, just subjectively not funny.

"my sister's at home with her beatles and her stones/we never got off on that revolution stuff"-----david bowie/mott the hoople song, all the young dudes.
