When you make a mistake in the privacy of your own home you are probably relieved that it was done in private. But when your wife shares your text exchange about your mistake and it goes viral, you will likely spend the rest of your life not living it down. Such is the case for one man who mistook a little cup he found for a rice scooper.
Some people have a flair for messing up just about anything in the kitchen.
It doesn’t matter how basic and simple the recipe is, if they attempt to cook it something goes wrong. Anyone who lives with one of these food destroyers understands that there is little hope. But sometimes dinner is left in their hands anyway.
Men get a bad rap for being clueless in the kitchen.
The stereotype of the hapless dad isn’t entirely unfounded, even if it’s unfair and certainly doesn’t encompass all men or all dads.
The women married to kitchen disasters know to make things as easy as possible for them. We leave out the ingredients and necessary kitchen utensils. We leave detailed instructions. We hope for the best.
It started out innocently enough.
Dad was cooking dinner, which included rice. He found the rice and utensils his wife had left out for him. He measured out the rice according to the recipe, and left the handy rice scooper in the bag of rice for next time. What he didn’t know, was that handy rice scooper was not really a rice scooper at all.
Mom Cindy Hobbs found the handy scooper in the rice, and asked her husband about it.
“What is this doing in the rice?” she asked.
“I used it to measure the rice last night. It said 3 cups of rice,” explained her husband who still had no idea what he had done.
His wife was not impressed.
“It’s my MENSTRUAL CUP YOU DICK POD!”
“? Menstalony soup?” her husband responds to the delight and confusion of the world at large.
“It’s MINISTRONE [sic] soup you wanker! Google menstural! [sic]”
And then apparently he did, because the exchange ends with him saying, “Oh fuck!”
