"I am a Tinder guy holding a fish and I will provide for you."

Very funny. I recommend this humor piece in The New Yorker... and I don't even know the Tinder photographs it's making fun of.

Eh I think you have to have spent way more time on Tinder than I have (which is to say, any time at all) to get the full effect of the jokes.

Started great but slowly became lame. Which I expect tracks most relationships started under Tinder or many other relationship starters, although not the pre Vatican II Catholic Church.

I had to just infer what's happening on Tinder and I found it very funny. Have never once looked at Tinder... only read about it.

Is this another escort story? I'd like to behold his mackerel! ;-)

I will provide you with many orgasms and sea bass.

I dunno....this doesn't sound half bad. Sea Bass are actually rather hard to find in the stores.

Sea Bass are pretty hard to find. Orgasms are quite scarce where I shop for victuals. -Probably a good thing too.

It reads like a rip-off of Borat.

Fairly obvious jokes, and emblematic of the condescending blue-state humor you'd get from the New Yorker. Guess who hates and ridicules pictures of people who enjoy fishing? People who have never gone fishing and think only hillbillies do.

FYI, the whole fish-picture divide really is a thing. Indicating that you're an outdoorsy person probably seems like relevant information on a dating app, so it's a common theme. But there is also a faction of woman whose profiles will include admonitions like: "If there's a dead animal in your profile pic, SWIPE LEFT." Some people find it very upsetting for some reason.

I'm guessing Miss Collier's profile has a bathroom mirror selfie with duck lips.

Don't buy liver where Portnoy shops.

Ok important safety tip Mr. Turtle.

That was a funny book.

I can't escape the impression that Laslo Spatula could have written that. It has his diction and rhythm. I will provide you with many orgasms and sea bass is right in Laslo's literary wheelhouse. Plus the repetition of the rock hard abs. It's like the clean antifa girl who now has herpes.
