Most people think cheesy pick-up lines should be a thing of the past...

According to new research, the pick-up line is officially dead. In a recent poll. 55% of Americans revealed they think one-liners should be forbidden and surprisingly, men are 18 percent more likely than women to think they should be outlawed.

According to the study, the most cringe-worthy lines that respondents rolled their eyes at were "I got my library card and I'm checking you out" (45%) followed by "Are you from Tennessee?

What’s funny is that despite their cheesiness, one-third of the men and women interviewed confessed that a pick-up line has worked on them at least once. And while most people don’t want a cheesy pickup lined used on them, they all agree they still get a laugh when hearing one spoken.

Here is a list of the best/worst pick-up lines we've heard.
