If we’ve learned anything about our fellow human beings during this extended quarantine, it’s that some dummies refuse to wear masks even though they save lives AND people are more into baking than ever before.
I mean, I guess when you’re pretty much confined to your house, you’re bound to pick up some new hobbies, right?
And why not baking? It’s enjoyable, the end results are (hopefully) delicious, and it helps to pass the time…and we all have plenty of free time right now…
As you can imagine, people have taken to Twitter to share their funny observations about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the baking happenings that are occurring inside their homes.
Let’s see what’s going on in the kitchens of America.
1. I can’t take it anymore!
When will it end…?
Please, God, someone do a sport so my boyfriend will stop talking about his sourdough starter

2. That’s not a good sign.
You need to HELP THEM!
if someone you know is getting deeply into making bread from scratch they are deeply depressed I promise you

3. Don’t even think about touching it.
If you know what’s good for you…

4. Banana bread is definitely in there.
Which is a good thing…I think.
The isolation stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, banana bread, and acceptance

5. What are you doing with your time?
And your LIFE?

6. You better get moving.
Don’t get left behind on this!
I’m so worried once this is over I won’t be welcomed back into society if I don’t learn how to make bread
— Brett S. Vergara (@BrettSVergara) April 6, 2020
7. That’s a very hot trend right now.
Are you part of it?
i am a woman seeking:
? a moss covered cottage deep in the forest surrounded by fae folk and botanical gardens where i can bake bread in bliss

8. I think you’re right…
It’s not just a catchphrase anymore…
Our society took “let’s get this bread” TOO FAR.
— Nick Lehmann (@NickStopTalking) April 5, 2020
9. Can someone explain this to me?
This is all a mystery…
While I'm sure the "pie bird" is a useful baking tool, it mostly just looks like a bird that's being punished by god pic.twitter.com/67aFO4cR2l

10. Baking it is!
Or you can pick one of the other ones if you really want to.
your thirties are all about finding a satisfying niche interest and channeling your whole personality into it. baking, knitting, craft coffee, composting, homebrew – anything you like that keeps you distracted from your own mortality

11. The most realistic part?
Do you agree with this statement, friends?
Seeing all of us baking right now makes me realize that Peeta was the most realistic part of the Hunger Games
— Tracy Badua (@tracybwrites) March 29, 2020
12. Yeah, pretty much.
Might as well throw it in there and see what happens.
It's like we're all on the Food Network show "Chopped" cooking meals with random crap that's left in the pantry.
