We've all got that one, go-to heinous "meal" we eat at the kitchen counter illuminated only by the light of the fridge.
Twitter user @hayley_hud asked her followers to share "the worst depression meal you’ve ever made." She then proceeded to post her own, which is "toast with a chick fil a sauce," a dish she labels an "abomination." I can't say I disagree.

Looking through the thread of what people consider to be their saddest food attempts is like having vague war flashbacks to all of the bizarre things I've consumed at 3 a.m. in a sleepy haze. Although, eating slightly stale pretzel rods dipped in sriracha pales in comparison to some of these, er, melancholic hors d'oeuvres.
Here's what the people have been eating in their darkest moments. You can look and even empathize, but please, don't get any ideas.
Quesadilla con cry-so
microwaved cheese on a tortilla and seasoned it with my tears

From the Wendy's Sad Hours menu
I ate a baked potato from Wendy’s like a burrito unwrapping the foil as I ate

It all goes to the same place, I guess
I couldn’t sleep so i got fed up and ate 2 large cans of sour cream and onion pringles, a bottle of chocolate milk, and a bottle of beer.
This was 3 years ago and i’m still nauseous.

Look ma, no bagel!
taking bites out of the plain philadelphia cream cheese (the one that comes in a box) like it was a giant cheese stick

I'm pretty sure this is illegal but I'm not a narc, so don't worry. Just please don't do it again.
(I realize now that that's exactly what a narc would say.)

Reverse hot dog— sounds like a sex position but is actually, quite literally, just that
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead
One time I cooked frozen pizza rolls in the microwave but I put too much time on the microwave and they became crusty little depression bricks. I ate them anyway because at the time I thought I deserved nothing but depression bricks

Ah yes, the three food groups: cheese, sugar, and sport
Cheese stick with Nutella and Gatorade. I got all the major food groups in. Cheese, sugar and sport

Please tell me you burned the Tupperware after
one time in college I just kept dumping pasta, tuna, canned beans, mayo, and various hot sauce/spices into a big Tupperware until it almost tasted like a reasonable tuna salad but mostly tasted like my own failures

It's my birthday and I'll eat spaghetti out of a ziplock bag if I want to
I'm 100 perfect definitely not going to ever try this, like at all. Like, I have zero desire to go get a box of push pops and a bowl right this very second.
I got a box of push pops and ate em all... efficiently. pic.twitter.com/4fgcJO1GkP

Eating ramen noodles with the back end of a floss stick? "Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before..."
i didn’t have any utensils so i used the pick end of a clean floss stick to eat soup pic.twitter.com/6Vo7x9yOyO

Alright folks, that's enough of that. I can honestly say this thread is the most gag-inducing I've witnessed on Twitter. Which is a feat, considering, um, it's Twitter.
Next time I find myself being beckoned to the fridge at an odd hour, I'll remember this thread and know that someone, somewhere, is eating peanuts submerged in a bowl of milk.
