Someone has upset a WHOLE lot of people on the internet, by posting a photo of ‘medium rare’ chicken strips. Facebook user, Morgan Jane Gibbs uploaded the photo on January 6.
Her caption read: “Just made chicken medium rare chicken strips. They’re so good can’t believe I’ve never tried it like this before. Can’t wait to dig into this with my homemade salad and veges. #healthy #newyearsresolution #clean #cleaneating The dish looked DISGUSTING, that much was obvious.
What wasn’t so obvious, is whether or not she was joking. “I like my chicken with less salmonella” said one friend.
“Honestly some people will believe your (sic) being serious and even stupider people could actually try it,” said another.
But Brian Laurikainen, who clearly realised Morgan was trolling the clean eating movement wrote “You should only cook it this way if you’re 100 per cent sure the chicken wasn’t vaccinated. Because that gives them autism and autistic chickens get salmonella.
5 minutes of Google research will make you an expert in this subject”.
It wasn’t until Facebook user Dakota Jean ripped off the post word-for-word that the post was picked up and went viral.

YouTuber ActionJaxon was one of the people who picked it up, and went on an expletive-laden rant about the chicken after seeing Jean’s post.
However, as reported by news.com.au, Pedestrian pointed out something pretty alarming.
That the image is an actual dish. That people eat. Without dying from salmonella poisoning, apparently.

The image used in the posts originally comes from a blog promoting tourism in Japan’s Shizuoka district and shows something called chicken tataki.
We still need to vomit…
