Guy on Tinder date jokes about being a serial killer and gets arrested for real.

Turns out, a Tinder date is not the best place to try out jokes about murder. Reddit user ImmortalSnail learned this lesson the hard way. He shared his tale of woah in the "Today I fucked Up (TIFU)" subreddit and yeah, he definitely fucked up.

It all started innocently enough: Immortalsnail met a girl on Tinder (okay, not that innocently) and they met up at a restaurant. He wrote:

This are going great, she thinks I'm funnier in person (when does that ever happen?!), she actually invites me to the mall to hangout more with some of her friends when dinner is over.

But then things took a turn for the worse as they started talking about how they met.

She states she's glad I'm normal and not some sort of serial killer.

And then.....

Now I could have just laughed... I could have but I was funny remember? I replied with "Oh thanks for thinking I'm normal! But I actually am a serial killer, bodies for days buried out at the farm."

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Okay, to be fair, it's not the WORST joke. We're all guilty of dropping a serial killer joke two on a Tinder date, right?? Sure, it's not high-level satire but it can be a way to cut the tension.

But in this guy's case, the joke only created more tension. Specifically, around both of his wrists.

She laughed, I laughed, I thought I did great at making it sound sarcastic.

She excuses herself to the bathroom to do whatever girls do in bathrooms on dates. It was taking a questionably long time for her to return and I was slightly worried she bailed and stuck me with the bill, my luck right? Wrong.

So unbelievably wrong, my luck was worse as police officers suddenly appear out of nowhere and tell me to keep both of my hands visible on the table.

Ohhhhhh boy.

Immortalsnail got hauled off in a cop car to the police station where he was rigorously questioned. He recalls:

I spent the next 5-6 hours explaining myself over and over and over that I was kidding.

I guess eventually they either believed me or got tired of hearing me speak much to my lawyers disapproval (to me speaking) and let me go and reminded me that my jokes suck.

I don't know what's worse, getting arrested or being told that your jokes suck. Either way, I feel for this guy. Or, I did. But then he wrote:

I'm not sure how date number two will go but I'm excited to find out, also a bright side is that I have no idea who paid for my food.

A bad joke I can understand, but thinking you deserve a second date after your first date landed you in jail?????

Lock him up! Lock him up! Lock him up!*

*a joke
