The "World's Saddest Cookbook" (PHOTO)

From Reddit user sibtiger, via Adam Kuban at Serious Eats:

"When my parents were dating, and starting to get serious, my dad got this book for my mom for her birthday. In typical engineer logic he explained that, since she was living on her own at the time, it would obviously be useful. It's amazing how many times I came close to not existing."


What. A. Photo shoot.

As luck would have it, there are multiple (3) videos on the internet of this cookbook's author microwave-cooking. Watch them below! Then read Videogum's take.
