Sometimes people share stories online thinking they'll be applauded for their ingenuity and creativity only to find the internet community pitying them for their ineptitude.
i don't have any spooks or forks so i broke off a piece of a hanger so i could eat pic.twitter.com/5wh5SVfpxX— childish sambino (@samiwert) May 11, 2017
A college student named Samantha proudly tweeted about how she turned a broken coat hanger into a makeshift fork and people couldn't help but feel sorry for her...and make fun of her, of course.
High school seniors: This is what you're excited to graduate for. https://t.co/GQgR3tr5vt— T-Milli (@tmilli15) May 11, 2017
But Samantha's post also inspired people to tweet about their own makeshift utensils, and some of them made her idea look downright brilliant.
Of course, some of them made her idea look dumb, because paper scooper beats jagged plastic hanger fork by a mile.
