In late February, the entire internet swooned over Michael, a charming young student who managed to score himself a date with Twitter user Natalie Salguero using the corniest technique imaginable: a "pickup lime."
Since that tweet went viral, guys everywhere have been trying to emulate Michael. Some of them are doing it very literally, and just straight-up copying his pun. One such guy, known to the people of Reddit as Cuddlebot4000 (best username ever?), decided to try it on a woman named Madeline he matched with on Tinder. But just as he's no Michael, Madeline turned out to be no Natalie.
She was immediately turned off by the pun, and asked Cuddlebot4000 to stop. So of course he didn't. What followed was one of the most awkward Tinder conversations we've ever had the pleasure of reading.
Needless to say, the immature people of Reddit think this guy is a hero.
If only Madeline had been so appreciative. And honestly, I'm surprised she doesn't like lime puns. She seems pretty sour.
