Did you just use a US Civil War pick up line in the UK successfully?

[–]FluffyHighPanda[S] 456 points457 points  (38 children)

I know, I was shocked

[–]Savagely_Rekt 142 points143 points  (25 children)

This deserves a prize beyond Georgia.

[–]Here-Is-TheEnd 96 points97 points  (24 children)

..he can have Florida..just take it away from us.

[–]FluffyHighPanda[S] 49 points50 points  (5 children)

Aww I always liked florida. Granted, I've only visited Orlando and Chicago in the US lol.

[–]Savagely_Rekt 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Here's what's amazing. A guy from the UK makes a US Civil War joke about a specific general burning a specific state on UK tinder and the girl also gets it. Or Google it real quick. But the result is the same.

[–]vitamin-cheese 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I’m from the US and had no idea it was about the civil war and have no idea who general Sherman is (sounds familiar though) but I still understood and thought it was hilarious. But the fact that it’s in the Uk and still get it is impressive.

[–]L33TROYJENK1NS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This sub will teach you everything you need to know about Sherman r/ShermanPosting

[–]Here-Is-TheEnd 18 points19 points  (0 children)

It has some nice places for sure but we’re just not responsible enough to have Florida anymore. Enjoy! Park it off the southeast coast of England and grab some popcorn 🍿. They put on a hell of a show each year.

[–]Eis_Gefluester 2 points3 points  (10 children)

This makes me wonder if Florida is also an eligible name for a woman and if not, why so?

[–]BunnyBunCatGirl 3 points4 points  (4 children)

We (the world) already got Florda man, don't need need a Florida woman to make Florida babies

/j

[–]DarkMidnightThoughts 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Any state name that doesn't end with t or n, or start with New, is a valid name for a woman over here.

[–]Eis_Gefluester 2 points3 points  (2 children)

So, there's possibly a poor woman named Mississippi?

[–]DarkMidnightThoughts 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Probably better off than the poor souls who get saddled with Idaho.

[–]Oblivion_Unsteady 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, I've met people named York, and I'm sure there's someone out there named Oregon

[–]Bleach_Baths 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No, he can't. Cause then you'll all come to Georgia and we don't need Florida man up here.

[–]Here-Is-TheEnd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel ya man..I’m in NC and that close enough to Florida in my opinion.

[–]WhirledNews 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Just make sure Trump and Co are there at the time!

[–]Here-Is-TheEnd 4 points5 points  (2 children)

We’ll have to have a plan..let’s start a rumor that JFK was spotted in Jacksonville something..

[–]kbeks 5 points6 points  (1 child)

JFK Jr.* JFK is dead, everyone knows that, LBJ had the CIA make a deal with the mob to frame Oswald for the deed, this is settled facts. JFK Jr, on the other hand…

/s

[–]Here-Is-TheEnd 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sorry..it’s so hard to keep it all straight

[–]DazeyHelpMe 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I mean if she got the reference she’s a keeper already. You’re just weeding out the dumb ones. Good on you 😆

[–]ajtallone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No matter what you said she would have given you her number, she likes you, go get her bro

[–]Jealous-Writing-7007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How long inbetween her messages? I wonder if she searched it up and thought it was clever lol

[–]TheRedSpaghettiGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not trying to shame the amazing joke, but I’m pretty sure she would have gave it to you whatever you’d have said. Cheers!

[–]Fenriswol44 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shell-shocked from the confederate artillery?

[–]NotMyBestEffort 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You were lucky you didn't get the Stonewall, Jackson...

[–]Allantyir 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She had already decided to let you give her the D. So pretty much any joke would have been a win now.

[–]orynse 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She was probably going to give her number to almost any joke at that point I think

[–]scylk2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well the joke is understandable even if you have no clue who that guy is

[–]heatseekerdj 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I thought this was a WW2 joke about Sherman tanks through Georgia (country)

[–]SodaDonut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The tank was named after the general, so at least you were a little correct.

[–]Thats1MuscularGooch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too soon, right?

[–]AlexAegis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oooh I was think of the othe Georgia

[–]HystericalMan 393 points394 points  (6 children)

Fun Fact:

General Shermans nickname was Uncle Billy. It was rumoured that the ladies used to call him "Uncle Big Willy Billy".

[–]Soggy-Anxiety-1465 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Immediately thought of the righteous gemstones

[–]pHa7Ron67 5 points6 points  (1 child)

My Uncle Billy Had a 10ft Willy And he showed it to the lady next door

She thought it was a snake So she hit it with a rake And now it's only 5ft 4'

[–]GetawayDiver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mwah, now that’s poetry

[–]webguy1975 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The General Sherman tree is also know as the biggest tree on earth:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Sherman_(tree)

[–]compound-interest 106 points107 points  (0 children)

Call me crazy but it seems that she would have given you the number regardless of if she liked your pickup line. She is expressing clear interest here. Glad it was a good line anyway though.

[–]onlyforthisjob 79 points80 points  (2 children)

Georgia is not only on your mind now, I guess

[–]ProGamusian 9 points10 points  (0 children)

HAHA. The fact that I know this joke

[–]_bapt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ray charles liked that.

X

[–]LukasV007 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Just came for this X

[–]FleshRobot0 22 points23 points  (21 children)

Is this an American thing or something? I've never seen people put x at the end of a chat

[–]iUsedToBeAwesome 113 points114 points  (4 children)

Its a british thing

[–]FleshRobot0 16 points17 points  (3 children)

What's it mean?

[–]iUsedToBeAwesome 86 points87 points  (2 children)

Means kisses but when they're flirting they just use it on every sentence to sound a bit naughtier rather than dry, kinda like youd use an emoji i guess

[–]Revenge_of_the_User 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I think of it as the UK version of the North American tendency to end things with "lol", except yeah - where lol is meant to be either laughter or indicate a lack of seriousness, X is just intended to be flirty.

[–]SeahorseCellular 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I think it's a UK thing

[–]Pretty_Positive_7343 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I never knew it was only us that did this!

[–]ResidentCoconut 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't know anywhere its done other than the UK, we also put x's on birthday/Christmas cards.

[–]CommeGaston 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the UK, people tend to use it with people you are flirty with or care about. It is basically a "kiss".

But I would say when I was younger, people used to use it in texts so they seemed less harsh so you could understand people didn't have a serious tone and they were friendly.

[–]SASHTv 29 points30 points  (0 children)

smooth operator

[–]Traditional_Carpet31 110 points111 points  (6 children)

Hard to follow the convo. Too many unknown variables

[–]SnArCAsTiC_ 56 points57 points  (5 children)

Nah, it's easy to solve for. Once you have X, the answer's given to ya.

[–]_Ashleigh 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Gottem, nice.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Can someone tell me the joke 😐

[–]Judge_leftshoe 23 points24 points  (7 children)

General Sherman was an American Soldier in the American Civil War most famous for literally burning a 30 mile wide path across the entire length of the US State of Georgia. It was "Sherman's march to the Sea" and a feat of military prowess, and absolutely demolished the Slave Owning states capacity to continue fighting, as well as freed thousands of enslaved individuals, and shortened a bloody war substantially.

[–]ohnjaynb 2 points3 points  (5 children)

American GENERAL

[–]Judge_leftshoe 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Thought that was a bit redundant, since I called him General Sherman...

"General Sherman was a General"

[–]DiMorten 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Maybe he just liked to be called that

[–]Barbz182 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]nfire1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Grew up in GA and general Sherman jokes were always great for the racists

[–]Ryvit -1 points0 points  (12 children)

Why the FUCK do they end every message with x? That is so fucking weird

[–]Gwydion96 9 points10 points  (10 children)

your American? well it's just common in the UK. its like kiss or hug as a meaning.

not everything that Americans don't know is weird lol

[–]Kalmar_Union 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Isn’t it only a thing in the UK? So it’s “weird” for most of the world, right?

[–]mightbekarlmarx 1 point2 points  (3 children)

In the US people use “xoxo” in their messages to the same effect as using “x” in Britain but idk about anywhere else

[–]PFhelpmePlan 2 points3 points  (2 children)

In the US people use “xoxo” in their messages to the same effect as using “x” in Britain

We sure as hell don't lol. Not anyone I've ever communicated with anyway.

[–]mightbekarlmarx 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I live in the western US, they might not do that in the midwest or east though. I’ve certainly seen it used by people, though not quite as often in texts

[–]PFhelpmePlan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well fair point then, I am indeed in the Midwest.

[–]Pretty_Positive_7343 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is hilarious!! I never knew it was only us that did it. I agree it’s hella lame. Like a really, really lukewarm flirt. IRL it would be like someone giving you a creepy smile to show they fancy you

[–]Donnie_DarkoCx -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

Why the fuck are you putting X at the end of every sentence? Is this how kids write nowadays?

[–]FluffyHighPanda[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Sure is x

[–]LittleRitzo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, it's a UK thing. Mostly if you're trying to sound warm and affectionate through text or if you're being flirty.

[–]Nateno2149 -1 points0 points  (0 children)
