    Take it from a Spanish person. You're doing it wrong, people.

    It's come to our attention that certain people have appalling and wrong opinions on tapas.

    But the problem is, a lot of people around the world appear to have no clue what tapas actually are.

    Let's look at the evidence, shall we?

    1. Whoever assembled this monstrosity.

    Why have you put a sandwich in a cup? Why is there a hard-boiled egg inside that meatball? And why is this plate scattered with oregano?

    2. When someone poured oil on some salad, chucked some raisins on, and said "Fuck it, that'll do."

    If you served that in Spain they'd burn down your bar.

    3. This stinging rebuke to everything Spanish culture represents.

    4. When someone thought this was an acceptable way to pair tapas with booze.

    5. Potted chicken nuggets, without any sauce. SMDH.

    6. Whichever establishment thought this was a good idea.

    An interesting idea. Our Tapas arrived on a washing line.

    A little part of me died looking at this picture.

    7. When the saddest tapa in history was accompanied by crackers on a paper plate.

    8. "Give me a tapa made with mayonnaise salad and Jenga blocks".

    9. That's not a tapa, that's just a bowl of floppy chips with two sauces.

    10. Whatever the hell this is.

    What kind of maniac serves tapas in tiny ceramic beer mugs?

    12. WHY ARE YOU EATING TAPAS IN THE BATH?

    13. MANDARINS.

    14. Go to hell.

    15. I don't even wanna know what's going on here.

    Please, people of the world - if you are going to talk shit about tapas, maybe ask yourself if the problem is tapas itself, or the rather the crappy ~approximation~ of tapas that gets served up in your country.

    And if you can't find good tapas in your country, hey, come to Spain and eat it here. You might just change your mind.
