In case you’ve lost track of time, the pandemic has now dominated U.S. life for nine months.
Covid-19, widespread demands for social justice, and a historic presidential election have already placed 2020 firmly in the history books.
And when future historians look back on this time, perhaps they’ll recall another 2020 phenomenon: people relentlessly bored at home sharing bizarre acts on social media.
Take TikTok user @itsmeju1iette, for example. At first glance, her history of video posts may look like your garden-variety collection of cooking hacks.
But her content has been anything but average.
Recently, she managed to attract nearly 11 million views and enrage what seemed like half the internet with a single 10-second video clip.
How? She cooked a steak in the toaster, of course. Feast your eyes.

A hefty majority of the post’s 65,000 comments immediately deemed her toasted turf method an act of utter blasphemy.
These people were downright livid―and remarkably protective of beef.
Others quickly moved beyond the toaster travesty and slammed her for a whole different reason.
And a few people called in the big guns.
It’s worth noting that the toasted steak was not this young woman’s first offensive cooking maneuver.
With virus case numbers surging and colder weather coming fast, people will be spending as much time indoors as ever.
Goodness knows what strange cooking creations have yet to come our way.
