A bloke went viral on Twitter this week after sharing snaps of his dinners in a group chat – much to the disgust of his mates.
One of the man’s pals posted the photos on Twitter alongside a rating for each meal and the photos which he said were “too good not to share”.
Owen_1906 wrote: “One of the lads has been sending his scrans into the group chat for the last few weeks and they’ve reached a point where they’re too good not to share
“(I can promise you all of these were eaten and none of them are a p*** take).”
The “rank” meals, some of which commenters said were “not normal”, quickly went viral as the post attracted more than 2,400 comments and 62,000 likes.
Plus 11,000 people retweeted the manky meals.
Sharing the first snap, Owen said: “Starting off strong with chicken nuggets, carrots and rice. Little bit of sauce on there at least there’s an effort. 3/10.”
In the photo a number of unseasoned, boiled vegetables topped rice with some sauce and chicken nuggets. But, the meals quickly got worse.
On a patterned plate a pre-made gravy-filled pie was shown – and the lad was smearing the dish onto some plain crackers.
Owen commented: “Coming up next we’ve got pie on crackers, doesn’t look very appealing but can’t really knock it too much because it’s just a normal pie and crackers. 5/10.”
Later, Owen posted a meal he claimed was a “bold choice” of plain spaghetti with sweetcorn, sausages and ketchup.
Another plate showed some slices of white toast topped with melted cheese to which Owen said: “Looks like cheese on toast but doubt it tasted like cheese on toast.
“At least the two ingredients in this meal are normal.”
Other bizarre dishes included nuggets with “unknown balls”, a roast dinner that was “one of the better meals on this list despite it still looking abysmal” and chicken wings that “look a bit raw”.
One dish showed a bowl of plain spaghetti with peas, an overcooked poached egg and bacon.
Owen commented: “Without doubt the single worst meal I have EVER seen consumed, there are starving refugees who would turn their nose up at this, the bacon was also cooked in the microwave. 0/10.”
And, a bizarre tortilla wrap that the poster said was “supposed to be a fajita”, he added: “The block of what looks like butter is a solid block of cheese and yes they are baked beans.”
Further meals included some oven chips and eggs, a curry, pie, potatoes, cabbage and carrot that looked like it was “cooked in a washing machine” and something Owen had “no idea” about what was on the plate.
A “giant, wet chicken nugget” also made an appearance.
And, Brits in the replies were somewhat disturbed.
One poster noted: “That is not normal anywhere to anyone.”
Another added: “Question: Is it normal for you people to eat pie on crackers?”
While a third wrote: “I can literally hear Italy crying.”
Others said the meals looked “rank”.
But, not all was lost as it seems the terrible chef may have a heart of gold.
Owen reposted a Tweet that said: “Now yous have all had your laugh, can I be serious?
“Ye my scran’s s***, but I’ve got something on my plate. Loads of people don’t.
“Put your money where your mouth is and support your local foodbank.”
He posted a link to the Trussell Trust page which locates your nearest foodbank – you can find it here.
