A word of warning: if you’ve experienced any of the following scenarios then the images you’re about to see will bring back some pretty nasty memories. If you’re lucky enough not to know the anguish of seeing your ice cream fall to the floor, or to receive the world’s most haphazardly assembled cheeseburger, then you can sit back, relax and laugh. Just pray these things never happen to you.
We’ve all been there. The pizza craving kicks in so you order online, sit back and dream of the cheese-and-tomato feast that will soon have a party on your taste buds. But, horror of horrors, the topping sticks to the box. Day ruined.
This will be a familiar sight to the #foodporn Instagram crowd. Getting that perfect shot isn’t always worth the effort; sometimes it’s better to get stuck in before your cellphone does.
Dipping cookies in milk is a timeless treat – unless, that is, the cookies are too wide to dunk in the white stuff. Break them in half, you say? Everybody knows that’s cheating.
Breaking off a banana; easier said than done, apparently. Maybe they should have been left to ripen just a little bit more. Why the heck didn’t they just eat the first one rather than breaking off another two?
Pizza rolls are easy to cook, they said. It will only take a few minutes, they said. What they didn’t say, however, is that they’ll explode. All 19 of them.
Just how do you take a single Pringle from a chip-packed tube? It was easy when you were a kid, but now that our hands are considerably bigger it’s almost impossible to reach inside.
Sure, McDonald’s cooks aren’t exactly Michelin-star chefs, but fast food isn’t really the trickiest thing to get right. You’ve definitely got room to complain if your Big Mac turns up like this.
It’s a good thing donuts come wrapped in paper to protect them from the harsh world outside. You wouldn’t want the topping to come off, would you?
It’s pretty easy, microwaving – you just chuck the food in, set a time that seems about right and hope for the best. At least, that’s what the person who engineered this disaster must have been thinking.
We’re not really sure what happened here. Maybe the delivery driver fell off his bike? Either way, just be glad it isn’t your pizza that turned up like this. Though you’d still it, wouldn’t you?
Is there anything more tragic than dropping your ice-cream cone on a hot summer’s day? This situation could have been worse – you could, maybe, salvage some of it? Which wouldn’t be an option had it fallen down the drain.
The first rule of making a cheeseburger is to get the cheese inside the bun. Maybe whoever was assembling this specimen forgot the cheese, and simply couldn’t be bothered with the almighty task of lifting the bun up.
Everyone knows that a wrap’s filling never quite reaches the top of the tortilla, but whoever made this is really taking liberties. Unless that tortilla is way bigger than it looks.
So you’ve decided to eschew cones altogether and eat ice cream straight from the tub. Then this happens while you’re driving. Looks like it’s back to square one – unless you just stop eating ice cream behind the wheel.
Ah, the grilled-cheese sandwich – the epitome of easy cooking. Until you try to turn it over, that is. Hilarious to watch; not so hilarious when you do it wrong. At least the three-second rule offers some consolation, but you’ve got to be quick.
Technically this is a pepperoni pizza; there are probably no strict guidelines governing exactly how much pepperoni is required to make a pizza a pepperoni one. There’s definitely more pepperoni in this paragraph than there is on this pizza, though.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that – no matter the wind direction – whenever and wherever you drop your toast it will always land butter-side down. Or in this case beans-side down, which is much, much worse.
The waffle iron was invented to take the hassle out of making waffles, not turn your breakfast into a crispy, burned disaster. Good luck cleaning that mess, by the way.
Most of us have been there. You sit down at a restaurant, wait patiently for the food to arrive and, when it does, there’s a conspicuous human hair on the plate. Yeah, that’s going straight back.
Everyone knows pets and dinner don’t mix, but it’s usually because they try to eat your food. This is a, wait for it, cat-astrophe of a different sort, but it’s no less hilarious to see.
