    This is the best dish ever. I eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I eat it in bed too. My wife complains about it, but I’d rather divorce her than give up on this food.

    I try to share it with my colleagues during meetings, but for some reason they decline it and give me weird looks as they spend time on trivial things like presentations and notes and whatever. Like, their loss, man.

    Mr Rice Guy is a national treasure. May he live long and prosper and cook more marmite fried chickens.
