Hello there, I'm here to ruin your day with lemons.

I know you never expected to read a sentence like that before.

Well, you know how you use handheld squeezy things to juice lemons?

And how you normally put half a lemon in the contraption with the cut side on the bottom?

Also, I know this is a lime. Please calm down.

Apparently you're meant to cut the bottom of the lemon off like this, then put it facing up.

And tbh, it actually makes a lot of sense if you think about how other juicers work with the whole "twist and push" thing you do.

    No, you heathen. You're meant to flip the lemon before you squeeze it.
