Everyone's got their own favorite food.


Doesn't mean it's going to taste good to you. It's like when someone tells you they're favorite pizza place, spends the days before you go together hyping it up, and then when you arrive it ends up being just okay. That's awkward. Yet, these people talking about their favorite weird two food combinations it too intriguing to completely ignore.

Reddit user, u/CouchCorrespondent, wanted to know what culinary wonders they were missing out on when they asked:

What are two foods that actually taste great together......even though most people don't eat them that way?

Breakfast is the most wonderful meal of the day. As the wise Leslie Knope once said, "Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?" So mixing it up can feel blasphemous, but what if it's tasty?

Jam It On

"When I was growing up, it was standard procedure for us to put grape jelly on scrambled eggs. I did it when I went to college and everyone at the table stared at me. I still like it."

Sauces and dips are critical to enjoying some foods. Mess with it too much and you risk ruining the delicacy. So that's why it's reassuring to see these people offering up their new spins on dip combinations.

"So I make spaghetti noodles, but break up the raw noodles into smaller pieces. Once they're done I put in a an egg or two (mix it around) and let it cook. I swear it's not that bad. My Nonna always makes it for me when I go back to the Midwest to visit. It's good with parmesan cheese too."

A Creative Spin On An Old Favorite

"Root beer float except with cherry Coke and chocolate ice cream. I was in middle school on a field trip, last in line at the cream shop, and ordered this after everyone else had done the standard root beer and vanilla. One of the cool girls who had never spoken my name before gave me this piercing look and asked if I would switch with her. I instinctively knew I would get zero benefit from this deal, so I said "Nope, ya gotta just remember it next time." That felt good."

Keep an open mind. Don't do this for every meal, sure, but always be ready to try something new.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor CrescendoX asked the online community,

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
