Here’s a fact: roommates eat your food. It is what it is. This is an unfair world where you don’t always get to eat the food that you buy.
Of course, there might come a time when you say to yourself, “Enough is enough.”
An unidentified student in China staged an elaborate revenge prank to get back at his flatmate for continuously stealing his food from his fridge, according to the People’s Daily Online.
The student made a fried chicken steak from cardboard covered in breadcrumbs and fried golden brown. The vengeful genius even posted the pictures of the process and shared his step-by-step recipe on his Weibo account.
The recipe involved cutting out two fillet-shaped pieces of cardboard and sticking them together with some double sided tape and soaking them in soy sauce for “flavor.”
He then covered them in flour and breadcrumbs to add texture and then fried them until they were golden brown and crispy.
To add authenticity to his cardboard steak, he also sprinkled a little chili on them and covered them in a plastic wrapper. After placing them in the fridge, the student then waited for the thief to take the bait.
The student’s how-to guide recipe for the cardboard “chicken steak” had been shared more than 100,000 times. Many commented that the fake chicken actually looked pretty realistic.
There was no confirmation on what transpired next as the student has yet to provide an update on his prank. We are, however, hopeful that this will teach one thief a lesson in respect and proper communal living.
