“You had me at halloumi”: Middle class pick up lines take the internet by storm

iStock_000059737178_Medium.jpg

Oh you middle classers... How you've amused us with your shopping conundrums in Waitrose - 'No marinated artichokes? It’s like East Berlin here' - and anarchic pesto graffiti

Now comedy website The Poke have launched a campaign on Twitter to find the poshest chat-up lines in the country and - while they don't necessarily ring true for most of us - they sure are making us laugh. 

Using the hashtag #MiddleClassChatupLines, people have been submitting the charms and flirtations from those of us who by definition rock Barbour jackets, call horses their favourite animal and only drink fairtrade decaf triple venti, half sweet, non-fat lattes...

Take a look at some of the entries so far, below.
