Single Men Reveal Their Most Embarrassing Meals They've Ever Made For Themselves

We have all had a quick and lazy meal, but these single guys take it to the next level.

Reddit user WeathermanDan asks:

Single men of reddit, what's the most "single guy" meal you have ever made?

Get ready for some extremely low-effort meal ideas!

The un-chopped salad

Bought a head of lettuce and ate it like an apple over the sink while occasionally dribbling salad dressing over it where I planned on biting.

Meal for 1-5

Stouffers Family Meal. Family of me.

The easy clean up meal

I've thrown the bottom of the bag tortilla chips in to the jar of salsa and ate it with a spoon.

Meals that make you get wild

I had ice cream for dinner on friday because I'm not drinking this month and still wanted that crazy friday feeling of letting loose

One pot for life

Former single man.

I pretty much lived on one pot dinners. Cook in it and eat from it.

Sometimes when I was feeling fancy I would use a plate but I would lay a tortilla on the plate before putting food on it, saved me washing the plate.

Whatever is left in the fridge will do

With nothing in the fridge I have resorted to eating the entirety of a parmesan cheese container. Popped the top off and went at it with a spoon like the shameless sack of man I am.

Everything is better fried, so fry everything

When I moved into my own place my dad bought me a pretty fancy deep fryer. I would toss a couple of corn dogs, 3 or 4 chicken strips and a handful of onion rings in it and let them all deep fry for about 10 minutes. That was my dinner. Not as "oh, look at the silly man eating from a can" as some of the other answers here but to me nothing screams "single man" quite like an entire meal of frozen food deep fried.

The alternatively made meal

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches... made with an iron.

A meal with your wing man

My brother and I once opened like eight cans of pasta of various varieties, dumped them all into a pot and stirred it all together. It was amazing.

Eating like an animal

Pizza and I ate it over the sink like a rat.

Meal in a can, with accessories

A can of chilli, cooked not by decanting it into a pan and warming it on the hob, or by pouring it into a bowl and microwaving it... but by taking the lid off the can and putting it directly onto one of the oven's rings.

Then eating it directly out of the red-hot can with a spoon, whilst wearing oven-gloves.

Getting the most out of that canned chili

Canned Chili in between pieces of sliced bread. I called it a taco.

The lone ranger meal

Arrives at restaurant:

Host: "How many?"

Me: "Just me, one please"

Host: "You'll have to wait 15 minutes"

Me: "Can't I just go sit at the bar like always?"

Host: "I'm going to have to see some ID"

Me: shows ID, gets a nod and walks to the bar to have some wings.

The false meals

I ate a box of Oreos for breakfast on a Sunday once.

Last night I ate half a log cake.

Eating tuna out the can.

Peanut butter dipping buffet

Not single anymore, but when I was I frequently made meals of granola bars dipped straight into the peanut butter jar.

Desperate and dry times

One day all I had to eat in my apartment was this giant jar of crunchy peanut butter that had a label indicating it was a part of some sort of UN humanitarian program for African nations. I got it from my grandmother who received it as part of a help package for elderly pensioners. It was extremely dry and tasted like cardboard. Lived two days on it, until my pay day.

With time comes wisdom and flavor

You want the real answer? The real answer? The bowl of cereal that's been sitting on my kitchen counter for the past three days.

Simple solutions

Cornflakes at 10:30 pm because I just got back home from a trip, the supermarkets were closed for the night, and that was the only food in the house. I used water.

A creative alternative

I wanted pizza. I did not have pizza. I was extremely broke. I did, however, have wonder bread, ketchup, kraft slices and a couple of leftover hotdogs.

I called it 'hobo pizza'. You may think because its easy and cheap to make, and kinda resembles pizza (bread, tomato, cheese, processed meat) but actually I called it that because it was like eating a hobo's ruptured hemorrhoid on a piece of his cardboard bed.

The meal that never ends

2lbs of Shepard's pie. Store bought. Started eating it and just...didn't stop.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
