There's no accounting for taste, as the old adage goes. That said, this man should absolutely be held accountable for his terrible taste.

On Tuesday, Twitter user @corihealey posted photographs of some chicken her boyfriend’s roommate was cooking for dinner, and it was evidence of nothing less than a first-degree felony culinary crime.

The man, it appears, had spread three large, dry, unseasoned chicken breasts on a baking pan and shoved it into the oven. It looks as horrifying as it must have tasted.

"I am DISTRAUGHT," our frightened observer tweeted.

The woman’s boyfriend’s roommate received an onslaught of mockery online, as the pictures of his sad chicken dinner went viral. It is simply incomprehensible that this dude would voluntarily subject himself to unseasoned chicken—a food nightmare condemned far and wide, including by Oprah Winfrey.

Chicken is perhaps the most ubiquitous of meats, and there are an infinite number of acceptable ways to prepare it. But baked dry without even so much as a dash of salt and pepper to flavor it is not one of them. Chicken is good for you——and can be delicious, of course, with the right seasonings and in the right recipes. But there is perhaps nothing blander than plain, dry chicken, and this guy should be embarrassed for electing to eat it that way.

That may sound harsh, but the fact is, that this guy’s gastronomic malfeasance reflects poorly on all dudes—the culinary equivalent of the men see fit to live in, as revealed by .
