Five Ways to Start a Conversation...If You're a Creep

I'll admit that I was suckered into reading this dating column on Yahoo!'s front page yesterday.  Five surefire conversation starters?  Hey, a guy can always use more arrows in his quiver, especially if, as my friends are all too willing to attest, that quiver's usually empty.  (Or, if you prefer a less gendered image, how about quivers for arrows?)

Anyway, even an idiot like me knows that a conversation starter's contrivance is usually inversely proportional to its success, and the suggestions strike me as corny at best.  Numbers 3 and 4 are especially abominable.  These "props" can't actually work, can they?
