Internet users around the world are confused.
Love it or hate it, this post has taken off, putting it in rare company. Few posts reach this level of coveted social media engagement. Think: Lady with the Chewbacca Mask, or 4 year old Befriended Old Guy in the Supermarket.
What is it about this colander thing that is grabbing our attention?
Even celebrities are weighing in on this. Giada FREAKING De Laurentiis even gave her two cents!
“[It’s] a tad bit risky and dangerous if you don’t have a perfectly fitting strainer and pot combination,” was the Food Network star’s opinion. And at least half of the internet world collectively thought, “DUH!” The other half? Still baffled that they’ve been doing it “wrong” their whole lives.
The general consensus seems to be that this is about as useful as a beard bowl of ramen noodles.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Pouring pasta into a colander works and is not a problem that needs fixing. When a hack doesn’t actually make anything easier, it’s not really a hack.
Genius idea or not, Wenita seems to be enjoying the ride.
A sizable army of Wenita friends, family, and new fans are now tagging Ellen Degeneres to get Wenita on the show. If Ellen Degeneres mentions your Facebook post, you have arrived.* #lifegoals
*If arriving means that you will have exactly 15 minutes of fame for something very unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
This "great" colander hack got us thinking about some other great hacks.
Let’s be honest: The internet is full of very few things. It largely consists of porn, cat videos, people falling down/getting hit in the crotch, and life hacks. Some of these are great, and others, well, are also there.
What follows are the best worst hacks we could find.
