What’s it like to be a lady cheeseburger on Tinder

It’s relatively rare for a woman to solicit a man on Tinder with sexts and explicit come-ons, rather than the other way around. But one very special lady is singlehandedly breaking boundaries and flipping the gender binary script by doing just that. Her name is Patty, she’s 21, and she’s the only lady you could ever describe as “a hot piece of meat” without being sexist. That’s because Patty is a double bacon cheeseburger.

(Warning: Some of her suitors use language that’s either understandably or horrifyingly NSFW.)


Before you start getting too excited that burgers have become sentient and, to celebrate their first act of human consciousness, started using mobile hookup apps, we hate to burst your bubble: “Patty” is actually a blogger for the website 7 Deadly, who set up a fake profile on Tinder to see if male users would respond to her differently. As it turned out, they didn’t: They were just as sleazy, creepy, and subiliterate as they are toward the average human Tinder lady:

With the exception of Patty’s charming “ratchet ugly beast of a woman” suitor, the majority of the men who messaged her appeared to have been in on the joke. But Patty’s experiment is a pretty hilarious reflection of how eager men are to talk to women on Tinder, even if the woman in question is a compressed and lightly seasoned patty of ground beef. On the other hand, though, you can’t really blame them. Have you seen her? Patty was totally asking for it.
