There are a few basic universally acknowledged truths. Gravity pulls things down. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Chocolate ice cream is worse than vanilla ice cream. You cannot make fried chicken in the microwave. This is because fried chicken needs to be fried, aka cooked in fat or oil. We have nothing against microwaves. We love them and we use them all the time. Microwaves can do amazing, amazing things. But they cannot fry chicken, because they do not fry things. They nuke them.
Some people apparently don’t understand this. See below:

The video made its way to Twitter last week, and began circulating. People freaked out as much as we did:
