Sometimes you see a life hack and it truly blows your mind. You take a minute and wonder, "Why didn't you think of that? I've been doing it wrong or the hard way your whole life!" Other times, you see a so-called hack and think, "Um, that's just plain stupid." But when everyone else is going nuts over it, are you missing something?
Recently, a colander hack has gone completely viral because it hits a sweet spot between genius and stupid, and it's divided the nation in a way we haven't seen since the white-gold/blue-black dress debate.
Ann Wenita, also known as Sister Ann Wenita Morelove, is Facebook user Doug Hagler.He is now enjoying the internet fame that accompanies an incredibly viral social media post. One idea, one colander, one pot: a semi-revolutionary idea that's taken off like only something silly can.
It all started with a series of photos of a different, "better" way to use a colander.Wenita had an idea, took some photos, and posted them to Facebook. The simple idea he proposed has been shared nearly 127K times on Facebook alone, and has garnered over 16K comments.
It really took off when Twitter user Daibella shared it.
Good morning to everyone. Just saw this on Facebook and spazzed. https://t.co/YB8qJ2a1g5— The Real Daibella (@The Real Daibella)1506965727.0
