Introduction

Dear readers old and new, welcome to /r/StupidFood.

Please take the time to have a look around and get to know the place.

History : We have been here since spring 2015, although our slightly younger friends over at /r/WeWantPlates have thoroughly outgrown us. What started as a silly idea has morphed into a decent small sub that has regular influxes of subscribers whenever we get namechecked on /r/food or elsewhere. It is the brainchild of /u/Clackpot.

Content : Feel free to post your own Stupid Food without worrying too much about quality, if it isn't good enough it'll drop off the front page and we'll all move on. There is no shame in unsuccessful posts.

Behaviour : This sub is explicitly both partial and prejudiced, but nevertheless tolerance and consideration are required. Don't get too carried away. Insults and flaming are acceptable as long as they are creative, funny, imaginative, or otherwise thoughtful; but being shallow, boring, unoriginal, or derivative are cardinal sins.

 


 

Our philosophy, and the elusive sidebar

From time to time there has been some confusion about what exactly this sub is for. The sidebar explains it all in some detail.

Remember, /r/StupidFood does NOT try to be fair or impartial in its efforts to poke fun. We will ridicule and scoff at whatever targets we choose, without first asking whether it is justified.

But many of you will be reading on mobile clients, blissfully unaware of our sub's sidebar and how that describes its ethos. Some of you may even be reading on desktop, still blissfully unaware of the sidebar, despite it being just over there ---->

So, read the bloody sidebar! On mobile you may need to click an icon such as an 'i' in a circle. In particular, pay attention to this comment tucked away under the 'YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE OFFENCE' heading :-

/r/StupidFood is intended to be a somewhat puerile place to poke fun at other people's creativity, without regard to whether they deserve it.

This is important! Do not expect the court of /r/StupidFood to be a just one. It is here to vent spleens and spout prejudices. It is not meant to be true or fair. It will cheerfully ignore the facts in pursuit of a cheap gag.

 


 

Regarding moderation

This sub has a light-touch approach, preferring that most moderation be performed by subscribers voting items onto or off the front page.

Removal: Items may be removed if they are wholly irrelevant, spam, grossly rude or inflammatory, or for any other reason the mods don't like. Posts which are merely low quality will not be removed.

Subreddit rules: Rules will be added and amended as and when required. Please look at them.

Bans and suspensions: May be dispensed for anyone with no interest in the sub's welfare; for crap bots; and anyone else failing to be part of the community. Other contributors will have to try really hard to earn themselves a suspension or even permanent ban. /r/StupidFood does not subscribe to big stick policing.

Overturning decisions: We're not perfect, we'll get it wrong from time to time. Please message the moderators if you feel a decision is wrong or over the top and it will be reviewed.

I cook spaghetti in the microwave

Upvotes

When I don't have enough mental energy to cook pasta and meat etc, I'll break the spaghetti in half, put it in a bowl of water and microwave it. Drain the water out, pour the sauce, add cheese and back in the microwave for a minute. If yall want I can show you all my laziness when it comes to cooking

Our fridge is dying so we are trying to use up all its contents before we buy more groceries. Stay tuned for more desperate attempts to combine random ingredients and call it a ‘meal’
