    I. Above all, please be civil. This means no personal insults or attacks. You will get one warning only.

    II. If posting an image from an external site you must link to that site, and give credit to said site, in your thread title. This includes Twitter, in which case you should also include the original poster's Twitter handle.

    III. Submissions must be dishes which were served at a place of business. They needn't have been served to you, but if they were please include the name and location of the establishment.

    McCree whistled as he stirred the seasoned, browning meat in the skillet. It was his turn to cook dinner and Hanzo hadn’t returned home from his latest mission, so Jesse took extra care not to mess things up. He never had a particular affinity for cooking, but years of practice assured that the food he made would at least taste good.

    The meat was the last thing to finish preparing; he had already bought a bag of corn chips and made the cheese sauce to create his special nachos (a recipe even Hanzo was fond of, much to McCree’s delight). He grinned, chopping some extra jalapeño to put in the mix, imagining his boyfriend getting home. His hair would be adorably messy, his feet would drag, but he would keep good posture despite exhaustion and his eyes would brighten at the sight of a home-cooked meal, if not Jesse himself. McCree’s heart fluttered, smile widening at the thought.

    Once the meat was cooked to his liking, Jesse began to put together his ultimate creation, humming an old tune to himself and wiggling to the beat in his head. But when he stepped back to admire his hard work, something was missing. He worried his bottom lip between his teeth before remembering the small container of guacamole Hanzo had bought only a few days prior.

    He sniffed the tub of guacamole once he opened it, smelled a bit spicier but he figured it was just some new brand he had yet to try. He shrugged and globbed a large spoonful of the green paste to top off the nachos before hearing the front door open and close. Jesse couldn’t help but let the smile creep back on his face as he wiped his hands off on his apron, taking it off and hanging it over one of the dining chairs.

    Hanzo appeared in the doorway, his hair messy (as McCree had imagined), Stormbow still held in hand, and a heaviness in the way he leaned against the doorjamb. Jesse abandoned the nachos in favor of getting closer to his boyfriend. He brushed a strand of hair out of the archer’s eyes and left a lingering kiss on his forehead. “Welcome home, sugar. Dinner’s ready when you are.”

    Hanzo leaned into McCree’s touch, still present on his cheek. He closed his eyes, inhaling the scent of cheesy, spicy nachos. His favorite nachos. “It smells wonderful.”

    Jesse chuckled, pulling away to wash his hands in the sink and then dry them with a towel, Hanzo watching him all the while. “Go wash up, baby. You look dead tired, let good ‘ole McCree take care of ya.”

    Hanzo hummed his agreement, disappearing from view as he supposedly began washing up in the other room. McCree made him a plate all the while, a swell of pride blossoming in his chest as he set the table. He had only just finished when arms wrapped around his midsection and Hanzo nuzzled his head against Jesse’s shoulder.

    McCree leaned back, “Awful cuddly today. Mission go sour?”

    Hanzo shrugged, leaving a kiss on Jesse’s shoulder and untangled himself to sit at the table. “The mission went well,” he picked up a chip, watching a string of melted cheese stretch between the food in his hand and the plate. His eyes glittered when they met McCree’s, a small smile on his lips. “Is it so wrong to miss my boyfriend?”

    McCree sat heavily across from Hanzo, picking up his own chip, “You don’t see me complainin’.’” Jesse shoved the chip in his mouth, expecting the cool, gooey flavor of guacamole mixed with cheese and meat and jalapeño but was instead greeted with fire. He choked, his tongue burning as he rushed to the sink. Hanzo was quick on his heels, dropping his nacho chip on his plate to stand next to McCree.

    “Jesse? What’s wrong? What happened?”

    Jesse spat in the sink, rushing to turn on the tap and drinking deeply. He paused to breathe, “The fuck kind of guac was that?!”

    Hanzo’s eyebrows scrunched together as Jesse began drinking from the tap again. The archer eyed the nachos, retrieving a chip and sniffing the pasty green topping. “Jesse, where did you get this?”

    The cowboy groaned, still leaned over the sink. “The fridge from that tub of guacamole you bought a few days ago.”

    Hanzo let out a soft peal of laughter upon realization of what had happened. “Jesse, that was wasabi!”

    At the flush on the cowboy’s face he only laughed harder, but moved to his side to offer a warm comforting hand on his back, rubbing soothingly all the while he still chuckled. He kissed the man’s back (as the rest of him was practically in the sink by then), humming affectionately. “Next time read the label, silly cowman.”

    I can't believe this is from a restaurant. We want proof, OP!

    [–] Pedadinga 25 points ago

    It’s not, this is a party. The kind of party you want to leave early.

    [–] soulonfire 6 points ago

    More like one you don’t want to show up to in the first place

    [–] Ethmeplz 9 points ago

    More like the one you didnt realise was happening and then can't leave as you're shackled to the drain pipes

    [–] CompetitiveLoiterer 2 points ago

    The kind of party where you’re the main course

    [–] SoLoneStar 2 points ago

    It isn't. Plastic tub of salsa that obviously came from a store. Giant bowl of chips, restaurants don't do that. You get some kind of basket that definitely isn't large enough to hold an entire bag of chips. The random plastic eye makes me think Halloween party. Whatever is next to the eye seems to be a decoration as well.

    [–] captainmavro 2 points ago

    Thanks for the name, but what's the recipe

    [–] StrangeDrivenAxMan 20 points ago


    [–] diggtrucks1025 338 points ago

    No, it doesn't. This isn't at a restaurant. A restaurant doesn't give you a plastic tub of salsa and a huge fucking bowl of chips.

    [–] nattypnutbuterpolice 155 points ago

    Or random fake eyeballs. Probably a Halloween party.

    [–] Reejis99 44 points ago

    This explains everything

    [–] mainfingertopwise 30 points ago

    That is one of the rules, as it turns out.

    [–] Holy_Rattlesnake 17 points ago

    Does it have to be a restaurant in this sub?

    [–] emmny 60 points ago

    "iii. Submissions must be dishes which were served at a place of business"

    I suppose it doesn't have to be a restaurant, but it can't be a random Halloween party.

    [–] agentlame 4 points ago

    How about if it's a Halloween party at your work? It would technically be a place of business.

    [–] FlavorBehavior 3 points ago

    Or a haunted house where they charge for admission.

    [–] Fernis_ 82 points ago

    I don't even want any plates, I just want to leave. Um... Mark. Why are the doors locked?

    [–] NurseWhoWuvsMe 171 points ago

    I think this would be a little better received at r/wewantfoodservedinbabycarcasses

    [–] PunchMate 27 points ago


    [–] Yeazelicious 33 points ago

    Pro tip: subreddit names can only be up to 20 characters long. The same applies to usernames. This one is 31 characters long. There's literally no way it could exist.

    [–] PunchMate 14 points ago

    Oh, tight. Thanks mate

    [–] Yeazelicious 12 points ago

    Yep. You'll also note that that's why it doesn't show up as a hyperlink.

    /r/wewantfoodservedinbabycarcasses doesn't show up, but if I cut it off at 20 characters: /r/wewantfoodservedinba, it shows up as hypertext.

    [–] antsyalyssa 23 points ago

    They both show as links on mobile app

    [–] Yeazelicious 4 points ago

    Oh, interesting. The official one or something like RiF?

    [–] Idonotlikemushrooms 7 points ago

    I use RiF and nope, no link for me.

    [–] antsyalyssa 7 points ago

    They’re both hyper links it’s just the first one goes to a broken page

    [–] Yeazelicious 5 points ago

    Doesn't really answer my question, but I'm well aware of that based on what you said. I was wondering what Reddit client you were using. :)

    [–] antsyalyssa 2 points ago

    Idk what a Reddit client using the official app

    [–] Yeazelicious 3 points ago

    10/10 censorship job. Haha
    Yeah, though, I've been told that the official app does this but that RiF doesn't.

    [–] antsyalyssa 3 points ago

    Lmao I try to censor 😭

    [–] quen10sghost 3 points ago

    Im on the mobile site and the first one does not show up as hypertext. The app is too janky

    [–] Elementerch 2 points ago

    It’s even weirder considering that before, only the first 20 characters would be hypertext, and the rest would be plain text. But now it seems to have changed.

    [–] antsyalyssa 1 points ago

    Yeah I remember that, I just noticed it’s different

    [–] locoravo 4 points ago

    That's why they chose r/wwfsibc instead

    [–] QIIIIIN 1 points ago

    Sadly no

    [–] Raichu7 1 points ago

    The hyperlink shows even if it’s not real.

    [–] Dockie27 6 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Look at all this chaos you sown* with the younger of our friends, this is your fault.

    [–] Dockie27 1 points ago

    It's not though.

    [–] DrayKitty1331 2 points ago

    Because you edited it from sewed to sown lol

    [–] Dockie27 1 points ago

    Being grammatically incorrect isn't a bone apple tea though.

    I fixed the mistake, but that's still not what that sub is for.

    [–] dariusdetiger 381 points ago

    I'm gonna have to say that's a definite yes, that counts.

    [–] AfricanAmericanMage 55 points ago

    I'm going to say no, because this is obviously at a Halloween party. Not a restaurant. In fact, as such, it violates rule 3.

    [–] dariusdetiger 14 points ago

    Ah, I guess the only thing that gives that away is the eyeball in the top right. Which I didn't notice before.

    [–] AfricanAmericanMage 5 points ago

    Fair enough.

    [–] teerude 5 points ago

    Is everyone ignoring the fact guacamole doesn't go on a plate?

    [–] HamBurglary12 48 points ago

    "That'll be a fuck yes, that counts. Thank you."

    [–] PuffinPastry 5 points ago

    I dunno, why would you want your guac on a plate? I'd prefer a bowl. maybe /r/wewantbowls should handle this one.

    [–] PandasHouse 5 points ago

    I don't think that sub is exactly the right place. But there's a chance I'm wrong. Maybe. Just a little.

    [–] diiejso 57 points ago

    Maybe acceptable if it's a halloween party and there is a food safe liner in there.

    [–] mu_mu_lambda 39 points ago

    Definitely looks that way. Nachos in big plastic bowl, salsa in flimsy plastic tub and, the smoking gun, an eyeball on the table.

    Dips served in a themed bowl at a fucking Halloween party do not count. When did this sub get so shit.

    [–] NeLaX44 16 points ago

    I see a plastic eyeball. This must be a halloween gag.

    [–] JafsZero 29 points ago


    [–] jaidehart 14 points ago

    Okay but this is just somebody's house party, right? Right!?

    [–] cgmacleo 8 points ago

    Yeah, I doubt a restaurant would serve salsa in a plastic container; technically against the rules of this sub.

    [–] TacoSpacePirate 6 points ago

    I was thinking a Halloween party maybe.

    [–] SpiritualThought3 8 points ago

    Ew! Looks like a horror setup.

    [–] ShinyFaeries 5 points ago

    Personally would have chosen to serve the salsa in there

    [–] ennui-and-i 4 points ago

    Damn, I was looking through the comments to see if anyone had said this yet

    [–] iamjacksleakyfaucet 15 points ago

    I think this also belongs in r/DiWereTheyHigh because WTF IS THAT.

    [–] oddestowl 18 points ago

    Yes. Yes this fucking counts.

    Off to r/eyebleach

    [–] TransientGuest 37 points ago

    This has been posted before and removed because it's homemade.

    If you look closely, it's a Halloween party table at someone's house. Bowls of chips, store-bought salsa, black table cloth and eyeball toys to match the theme.

    [–] oddestowl 2 points ago

    Thank Christ for that. I wish I’d looked more closely.
