23 Food Fails That Prove Cooking Should Require Some Type Of License

Listen, I've had my fair share of cooking mishaps. I made a DELICIOUS broccoli cheddar soup. But as I was straining out the soup so it wouldn't be lumpy (I hate lumpy soup) I realized that I didn't put anything under the strainer, and I just watched as my soup funneled down the sink.

But at least I didn't melt my stove, like some of these people did.
