This submission from isontheroad has quite clearly been staged, of this there can be little doubt.
However as a lifelong fan of the choreographed art of professional wrestling I am able to appreciate something being simultaneously both real and fake.
The meal may be a work, but the heartfelt misery that has gone into this image is damn real.
So real, in fact, that I’ve already appropriated this picture for use as my avatar across the wide range of social media platforms I’m currently being boring on.
It speaks to me.
