This is my third year doing A Christmas Carol at Metropolis. I love the show. There's lots of music, dancing, and new special effects. This particular cast seems to have quite a dirty sense of humor. So we've been having a lot of fun with one another behind the scenes. Yes, of course, onstage, it's all beautiful familial love and the spread of peace and goodwill to all. But backstage is another story. Ive been goosed ( and done some goosing ) , flashed, and flirted with by nearly every cast member of appropriate age. We've all come up with some fun pick up lines for the Victorian Era. So Strap This On for January and hopes for a Happy and warmer New Year:
The Top Ten Pick-Up Lines for the Victorian Era
10 ) My carriage is coal heated. And my driver has a new riding crop. What you do after you get them in the carriage is up to you.
9 ) My chambermaid does men and women. Would you like me to bring her over to your place?
8 ) Would you like to borrow my chimney sweep? My chimney is extremely clean. I highly recommend her.
7 ) I have family over the age of thirty. I hear you can tell someone's age by the curve of the lower back. Let's take a peek.
6 ) My parents work at a perfumery. They're looking for people with keen senses. I have some free samples at home you can try.
5 ) I have all my own teeth. And I have fruit. Maybe you could come over and share a banana.
4 ) I'm not wearing any bloomers. Would you like to see my ankles?
3 ) My chambermaid cleans stovepipes and ovens. Do you have anything that needs cleaning?
2 ) I won't make you take your corset off.
1 ) I own the prettiest muff in town. Want to come over and see?
