There are a lot of great things about being an adult: you don’t have a bedtime, you can watch R-rated movies whenever you want, and you don’t have to eat lunch in a school cafeteria. It’s been a while since we’ve had to eat in a school lunchroom, but the nightmares of square pizza and mystery meat hamburgers still haunt us. The only food that we actually remember enjoying is the Friday afternoon ice cream, and according to the FDA, even that was tainted. We should have known it was too good to be true. If you want to ruin your appetite or just take in the ineptitude of the modern school system, this list of school cafeteria horror stories will knock your socks off.
After you drop off your tray of pink slime with the lunch monitor, vote on which of these public school facts are the worst.
