Did it hurt when you fell out of Heaven? Oops! That just slipped out. See how we men are? Well, at the risk of catching hell from all the dudes out there, I’m providing retorts to some of our favorite and/or terrible pick-up lines. Try these next time you’re approached by a creeper.

1. Are those space pants? Because your ass is out of this world!
No, they’re prison pants. And it’s time for me to make my escape.

No, I’m Finnish. Finnish with this conversation!

It looks a little too clingy and hard to maintain.

I don’t. But I know karate and I could rip your lungs out.

12. Do you have a map? I’m getting lost in your eyes.
Sorry, no map. So why don’t you just get lost?
