We’ve seen this picture everywhere. It’s been memed to death, but it still pops up every once in a while. If you don’t know the backstory of this picture, apparently, this kid tried to heat up ramen noodles in a microwave. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if you forget to put water in the cup, well, that’s a completely different story.
We wonder how long the noodles were in the microwave for before finally spontaneously combusting? You can tell that this kid is at a loss of words. What excuse could he give to make it look like an honest mistake? Instead, he gave us a memorable facial expression that has become one of the most used memes of the early-2010s.
