I mean c’mon, look how incredible this work of art looks!

…Until you look closer to see what it’s wrapped with. Does it look familiar?


Yup, it’s wrapped in what kids use to practice their cursive handwriting. Meaning some little child’s (probably unwashed) hands touched it. Meaning you can’t even imagine where that paper has been.


There are even stains on it! Maybe it’s from the food. Maybe it’s not. Maybe they’re boogers. This is every germophobe’s worst nightmare.


The top reddit comment pretty much sums up most of our thoughts.
