While everyone else is pushing their food into perfect lighting, dressing it up in “going out” clothes, and contouring it into unrecognizability just to pass Instagram’s “like” test, there is a subset of OGs who are keeping it old school; the type of old school that you’d never consider posting on social media, just like those Polaroids you’ve stumbled upon digging through your grandma’s hope chest. You know, the ones where you have, like, 27  plastic barrettes in your ratty, derelict hair and one eye looks like it needs immediate medical attention? Yep. Those ones.

Here are 15 photos that prove our obsession with intangible perfection may not be as severe as we thought. Thank you Reddit’s “Shitty Food Porn” for being our Santa Clause year-round.
