Are People Just Pretending to Like These 5 Things?
We don’t agree on anything anymore. From sports teams to food, to politics, everything is up for debate and eventually, probably an argument. Sometimes people want to fit into the crowd and may act like they like something, but all of us who find these things to be unlikable know they’re just putting on a show. Since everything is a thing on the internet, there was someone on Twitter who asked, “What’s something you’re convinced other people are just PRETENDING to like?” Some of the responses really make you think, “yea that’s definitely not really good.”
What are you convinced people are pretending to enjoy?— Jake Okechukwu Effoduh (@effodu) August 3, 2023
Let’s run through a couple of good ones that people are definitely just pretending to like.
- Sparkling Water – The person who put this up is totally correct in what they’re saying, “It tastes like if Sprite lied about it’s personality.”
- Avocados – Plain avocados are trash. Avocados were put on this earth to be smashed up and mixed with lime juice, salt, pepper, minced garlic, Cholula Original hot sauce, and small pieces of tomato. Take these ingredients and I’ve just given you my delicious guac recipe.
- Black Coffee – Call it what it is. Hot bean water. It’s bitter and gross. Our boss has about 6-8 cups of hot bean water a day when at the station.
- Clubs once you hit 35 years old – Total agreement. I’d rather drink in my backyard with a speaker on. Every so often hit a bar in the city, but clubs are definitely out.
- Lobster – This one really made me laugh, but it’s so true. First, crab is better than lobster. Second, lobster used to be a food they’d serve to prisoners because it sucks. Take a quick history lesson on tastingtable.com on lobster and why it was considered slop.
“The abundance of crustaceans led to a budget-friendly cost that earned them a new nickname from the colonial era onward — the “poor man’s protein.” Lobster was essentially considered slop — only fit for prisoners until east coast restaurants began serving it in the 1880s, according to History.”
There are a whole bunch of responses and boy people hit the nail on the head with some of them. Click the link in the first paragraph to go to the original post to check all of them out. Maybe add a few of your own to give the tweet a 2nd life since it was posted on August 2nd.
