There’s no accounting for taste, as the old adage goes. That said, this man should ABSOLUTELY be held accountable for his terrible taste.
Twitter user @corihealey on Tuesday posted a pair of photographs of some chicken her boyfriend’s roommate was cooking for dinner, and it was evidence of nothing less than a first-degree felony culinary crime.
The man, it appears, had spread three large, dry, unseasoned chicken breasts on a baking pan and shoved it into the oven. It’s a sight as horrifying as it must have been to eat.
“I am DISTRAUGHT,” our frightened observer tweeted.
Y’all wanna get upset by the lack of seasoning on my boyfriends roommates chicken with me pic.twitter.com/R72oHmAf3G- Anustart (@corihealey) January 8, 2019
The woman’s boyfriend’s roommate received an onslaught of mockery online, as the pictures of his sad chicken dinner went viral. It is simply incomprehensible that this dude would voluntarily subject himself to unseasoned chicken-a food nightmare condemned far and wide, including by Oprah Winfrey.
I often think about the time Oprah did a cooking segment with a woman whose chicken recipe won $1 million, and Oprah's jaw dropped when she tasted it and realized the lady didn't even add seasoning pic.twitter.com/rfs7PS1Jc3- Spencer Althouse (@SpencerAlthouse) December 9, 2018
Chicken is perhaps the most ubiquitous of meats, and there are an infinite number of acceptable ways to prepare it. But baked dry without even so much as a dash of salt and pepper to flavor it is not one of them. Chicken is good for you-even though high demand may be hurting meat quality-and can be delicious, of course, with the right seasonings and in the right recipes. But there is perhaps nothing blander than plain, dry chicken, and this guy should be embarrassed for electing to eat it that way.
No seasoning, no sauce, not even any butter. This is a crime against poultry.- Tariq Moustapha (@TheTariqM) January 8, 2019

It’s horrifying it’s like watching Sponges bake- FattyAtomicMutant (@SpoilersSpoils) January 8, 2019
That may sound harsh, but the fact is, that this guy’s gastronomic malfeasance reflects poorly on all dudes-the culinary equivalent of the barren, humiliating apartments men see fit to live in, as revealed by that viral meme last month.
We need to be better than this, fellas. Get yourselves some dang furniture, and learn a few ways to cook some food for yourself that doesn’t taste like rubber-here are ten easy ideas. Your tastebuds will thank you, and your friends won’t think you’re a madman.
I think he’s a serial killer- Anustart (@corihealey) January 8, 2019
