It's an incontestable fact: The holiday season brings out the best — and, to the expense of loved ones, the worst — in our cooking skills. Mom pressures you to bake something for the holiday party; you really have no choice but to give it an honest go.
That's what "Global News Calgary" host Leslie Horton did, and her colleagues got a serious kick out of it, BuzzFeed reports.
It all started with artichoke dip that somehow went horribly wrong. Behold:
"Yeah, it's not supposed to look like that," Horton says at the beginning of the clip, and indeed, the dip is an off-putting, rather unappetizing yellowish color.
"I didn't want to bake it; I've been busy," Horton says, echoing what we're all feeling. "So, I didn't want to make anything, but my family was all freaking out."
Her family, apparently, sent her the recipe. The hosts comment that it smells like vinegar; one says it smells "like a barn." Yum!
Nothing, however, beats meteorologist Jordan Witzel's hilarious reaction after taking a bite around the 1:08 mark.
"At first, I'm like, 'Well, it's not that bad,' but the vinegar!" he says, looking like he just saw the Ghost of Christmas Past.
"But there's no vinegar in there," Horton says, blowing us all away.
Merry Christmas, indeed.
