Guy's 'blueberry waffle' meal is going viral for the most hilariously disturbing reason

"There’s no way this is true. Those are clearly blueberry waffles."

A viral story on Reddit will make you think twice before you ever eat a blueberry waffle again. A Reddit user with the username @RandyBoBandy___, who goes by the name of Randy, thought he was enjoying a tasty, carb-filled breakfast earlier this month, but he later realized that he had put his health in serious jeopardy.

Randy lives in Montreal, Canada, and his story, posted on April 11, has been upvoted by the online community over 144,000 times.

“It was pretty dark, and my freezer doesn’t have a light or anything, so I just took two waffles out and put them in the toaster,” Randy told Today.com. “I ate them with maple syrup.”

He didn’t notice anything different with the taste. So, he went back into his freezer to grab two more.

“After eating two of these blueberry waffles, I went to heat up two more and saw that the package was for plain waffles,” the Redditor wrote in the r/mildlyinfuriating subreddit. “I ate mold.”

Ewww. Disgusting.

So, what Randy thought were delicious, sweet blueberries in his waffle was mold. Given the picture he shared on Reddit, it’s easy to see why he mistook the blue mold for blueberries.

"It was the worst 10 seconds of my life," Randy wrote in his post.

“There’s no way this is true. Those are clearly blueberry waffles,” uguysmakemesick commented on the post.

"Just pretend it was blue cheese or penicillin," MajorMeowCat wrote.

Punk_n_Destroy's comment probably made Randy want to throw up. "Fun fact: mold is a fungus, so the spots you see are only the fruiting part of the mold," they wrote. "That whole waffle may be packed full of mycelium."

Randy further explained why he didn’t notice that his waffles were moldy.

“1—I was watching TV. 2—I ate it with maple syrup. 3—It was dark. 4—I might have COVID, or a bad cold. 5—It's 5 AM where I’m at. 6—It's the cheap waffles, I never expect any real flavour,” he wrote on the post.

After the post went viral, many were concerned about Randy’s health. Did he survive eating two waffles that were riddled with mold? So, he gave an update showing that he was still alive and had no symptoms of being poisoned by the moldy waffles.

“Update, I didn’t get sick,” Randy posted with a big thumbs up alongside another moldy waffle.

Randy told Today.com that the waffle went bad because of a power outage in his neighborhood that lasted for four days. While his refrigerator was off, he kept most of his perishables in a cooler packed with ice. However, the waffles were left in the warm freezer so they defrosted and went bad.

So, was Randy tempting fate when he ate the moldy waffles? According to dietitian Lillian Craggs-Dino, eating a moldy waffle shouldn’t kill you. “Be mindful of the fact that you ate it,” Craggs-Dino told the Cleveland Clinic. “And make sure you don’t have any symptoms for the rest of that day. Most likely, you’ll be okay.”

Our home, from space.

Sixty-one years ago, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to make it into space and probably the first to experience what scientists now call the "overview effect." This change occurs when people see the world from far above and notice that it’s a place where “borders are invisible, where racial, religious and economic strife are nowhere to be seen.”

The overview effect makes man’s squabbles with one another seem incredibly petty and presents the planet as it truly is, one interconnected organism.

Just another unsolved mystery

Who doesn’t like a good mystery?

A video creator known as @katherout certainly does. At the gym Kath frequents, there’s a whiteboard with a revolving prompt with simple questions like “What are you listening to?” or “What city were you born in?” Gym goers then write their responses anonymously on the board.

Kath recently became enthralled—and tickled—by a person who somehow manage to write the word “monke” (as in the word describing a group of monkeys, apparently) on every single one of their answers.

How bizarre, how bizarre.

It should go without saying that it’s not cool to steal from your Airbnb. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t still happen.

However, when one Airbnb host recently discovered a guest had—for some strange reason—stolen one of her paintings, then replaced it with a completely different painting, she decided to make the best out of a very uncool situation by sharing the story on TikTok.

As a result, viewers got to witness an continuously unraveling, truly bizarre modern-day art heist.

Okay, let’s get into it.

11-year-old girl is the youngest opera singer in the world.

The majority of 11-year-olds are perfectly content balancing the pre-teen life with Barbie dolls and tinted lipgloss. But one pre-teen is busy breaking records. Victory Brinker is an 11-year-old opera prodigy who was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's youngest opera singer in 2019 when she was almost 8 years old.

If you like opera—or even if you don't—hearing her vocal range of three octaves and voice control is impressive. When it comes to singing, control of your breath, pitch and tone can be difficult, especially when you're without years of classical training. Victory's skill is so impressive that when she appeared on America's Got Talent last year, she was given the "golden buzzer," which sends you straight to the finalist round in Hollywood.

Brianna Greenfield makes nachos for her husband.

A viral video showing a woman preparing nachos for her "picky" spouse after he refused to eat the salmon dinner she cooked has sparked a contentious debate on TikTok. The video was shared on April 26 by Brianna Greenfield (@themamabrianna on TikTok) and has since earned over 2.5 million views.

Brianna is a mother of two who lives in Iowa.

The video starts with Brianna grating a massive hunk of cheese with a caption that reads: “My husband didn’t eat the dinner that I made…So let’s make him some nachos.”

“If I don’t feed him, he literally won’t eat,” she wrote. “This used to irritate me. Now I just blame his mother for never making him try salmon,” Greenfield wrote. The video features Meghan Trainor’s single “Mother” playing in the background.

Now THAT'S a deal.

Let's be real—buying secondhand allows us to save a few bucks, which is great. But the real thrill is the possibility of snagging that ultra-rare, one-of-a-kind item that’s worth a bajillion times more than we originally paid for it. Yes, that kind of shopping is a lottery unto itself. But man, what a jackpot, should you win.

And of course, it’s not a totally far-fetched fantasy. Costly things get thrown out or donated all the time, ready to be procured at the nearby thrift store, garage sale…

…or, in this case, Facebook Marketplace.
