The definition of plating is, "The arrangement and overall styling of food upon bringing it to the plate." Did you notice that? The last word is PLATE. Not a shoe, not a rock, a plate. Please. Just put the food on a plate.
Ping Pong Paddle
Seriously?! What was the thought process behind this. We're dying to know.
I didn't order paint. I ordered food. Food should not come in paint pails. Ever. Also, am I supposed to paint my fries with ketchup?
Melted Vinyl Record
So basically, you went into your hot and humid attic and found a huge box of all your old, destroyed records and thought, "I could serve fries on these!"
It's cool that they make cutting boards that look like states, but they aren't PLATES. Also, there is just too much real estate on this board to be used for JUST a cupcake.
Jar of Spaghetti
How are you supposed to incorporate that sauce into the rest of the noodles?! This is why plates are necessary, especially when mixing your food is required for enjoyment.
The irony of this is, the pan is sitting on top of a perfectly usable plate. Go figure.
Let me just shovel this breakfast down my gullet really fast before I come to the realization that this restaurant might be trying to tell me something about my eating habits.
Thank you for letting me eat like a cave man even though we live in a modern society where utensils are widely available for use! Can't wait to think about the family before us who slobbered on this exact same spot I'm eating from! YIPPIE.
The only way this is related to a plate is that it can also be found in or around the kitchen.
WE ARE NOT PLANTS. WE ARE PEOPLE. BRING US A PITCHER.
Crumpled Up Foil
*wads up foil salad and chucks it at server*
This is not pizza. This is cheesecake. Not only are you insulting the name of pizza, but also the integrity of cheesecake.
Ever eaten a tiny amount of an indescribable food off of a rock before? No?
Yeah. Wood actually absorbs bacteria and pathogens. ABSORBS. Thanks for the food poisoning!
Whatever This Contraption Is
Does this come with an instruction manual or…?
This is supposed to be cheesecake. THIS IS NOT CHEESECAKE.
Have you ever eaten food out of a shoe before?
This entree looks like something you would find on "Survivor" where the contestants find random edible things and cook them on a rock and then eat right off of that rock because they don't have plates. The funny thing is, this was served at a restaurant.
Enjoy the extra protein, brought to you by, LICE.
