A creepy perv told what he thought was a 14-year-old girl he "had a Big Mac in his shorts" before he was snared by a social media paedo hunter group and put before a court.
Graeme Phillips, 41, unwittingly sent X-rated messages and nude pictures to two decoy accounts last year, and was handed a suspended sentence on Tuesday (November 15).
The creep pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to engage a child in sexual communication at Liverpool Crown Court, the Liverpool ECHO reported.

Phillips was snared by the 'Dank Dragons Exposed' group after sending naked selfies and sick messages and was later tracked to a pub where another group called Stop UK confronted him on behalf of Dank Dragons Exposed, and performed a citizen's arrest.
Philips, from Moreton, a town on the Wirral, Merseyside, told an account called 'Sarah' on the 'Meet4U' app that he was 40 and initially said "I think you're too old for me".
However, when she changed a profile picture on her WhatsApp account Phillips began sending sexualised messages on December 1, 2021.
Paul Blasbery, prosecuting, told the court: "As a result of that picture the defendant told the decoy she was beautiful and stunning, he then sent a picture of himself naked from the waist up where he was sitting on the bed.
"He then told her 'I probably have bigger t*** than her', and told her he didn't care if she wore a bra or not."
Other vile comments including asking if he could "make her blush", talking about her breasts and telling her he had a "Big Mac in his shorts", referring to his penis.

"He also asked for a "naughty picture" and sent her a picture of his penis in a "semi-erect" state and asked if she thought "it was nice".
On December 14, Phillips also began messaging a decoy account on Meet4U called Scarlett Rossiter, operated by an adult called Hannah Clarke, who also posed as a 14-year-old.
Mr Blasbery told the court Phillips began making sexualised comments and told her he slept naked, and began asking about her breasts. Phillips also told the decoy "not to tell her mum".
At this point, Dank Dragons called on Stop UK to help and Phillips was confronted outside the pub and handed over to police.
Phillips was sentenced to 10 months in prison, suspended for two years, and told he must sign the Sex Offenders' Register for 10 years, which includes restrictions on his internet use.
