Let Melissa McCarthy Teach You How Not To Pick Up Guys

by Madeline Raynor

Comedy genius Melissa McCarthy hosted Saturday Night Live for the fourth time on Saturday, and she blessed us with this sketch about pick up lines gone wrong. A bunch of ladies hit the bar to practice their new skills after taking a class in the art of picking up guys, and Melissa McCarthy’s awkward and aggressive character is unsuccessful, to put it mildly. If you want to learn from her next time you’re at a bar on a Saturday night, here are some things to avoid: stuffing your fingers into a guy’s mouth, licking his collarbone, mentioning that your uncle is a serial killer, and inviting him to a prison execution. Melissa McCarthy is so funny in this sketch that she makes Leslie Jones break character multiple times.
