A woman who lost her right arm in an moped accident has been sprinkling the Internet with her quick wit and sense of humour.
Lauren, posted the best Tinder bio ever, taking the piss out of her own arm, or lack there of, melting the hearts of many.
Posting on the dating app, the 21-year-old from San Diego said her occupation was an ‘arms dealer’ while saying she was ‘hands down the best catch on Tinder’.

The cherry on top was at the end when she said her personality was 20/10, her face was 10/10, and ‘arms ‘1/2’.

Her Instagram and Twitter are also full of hilarious self-deprecation.
One tweet read:
I was in the ocean and this lil kids like ‘what happened to ur arm’ and I told him it was a shark and he ran out and has yet to get back in.

Lauren told Buzzfeed News:
I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road.
I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time.
Lauren said that social media has played a big part in her recovery:
For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes. But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped.
Lauren is trying to raise $20k for a prosthetic arm, so you can donate on her GoFundMe page.
You’ve got to respect someone who can laugh at themselves like that.
