A food page is taking Facebook by storm as it asks members to post pictures of their meals to be rated by fellow users - leading to some hilarious responses.

The myriad entries that are posted by the group can often range from the good to the bad, to the downright weird.

However, the page, which has more than 1.8million followers, is famed for its scathing critiques and often hilarious responses to the dishes.

Though there are some genuine articles on offer, its the plates that are put together terribly, feature horrific combinations of ingredients or are just downright wrong that make the page so popular.

Here are some of our favourites...

While another suggested that "a good vet would have that pig back on it's feet..", when referring to the bacon.

Finally, one other commenter joked: "How do u like your eggs in the morning ? Not cooked by Carol that's for sure."
