sketch·bur·ger · noun, adjective, slang.
1. Person who behaves in socially suspicious ways as a general pattern of behavior. Behaviors tend to relate to problems with SEX and/or DRUGS, although, just as often a SKETCHBURGER could be suffering from a crippling SOCIAL ANXIETY that colors everything they do in an inadvertently suspicious light. Most often, however, if you’re getting a SKETCHBURGER vibe from someone, there is in fact a higher-than-average chance that they are indeed a SKETCHBURGER.
2. Unfortunately named new hamburger restaurant on GIRARD AVE. that has unwittingly caused Philebrity staff to call each other SKETCHBURGERS about once an hour.
Syn.: SHADY MCSHADESTER, BURGERTIME, MUSICIAN, BOYFRIEND.
Ex.: “Jimmy totally disappeared with that girl who was by herself at the end of the bar all night long. What a SKETCHBURGER!”
