There are people too lazy to wash the dishes, and then there are people too lazy to even dirty them to begin with.
The latter appears to be the target demographic for the new delivery service from the UK-based restaurant Housebites.
Shortlist found this gem of a press release explaining that Housebites now offers its customers the option of pretending "they have slaved away at a hot stove more convincingly by delivering dirty pans alongside the food."
"Cooked by a professional chef and delivered to your door, Housebites main courses cost on average between Â£10 and Â£12, and now for an additional Â£5, customers can request the pans used to cook them for added authenticity," the release says.
Just make sure your friends don't catch you sheepishly handing the dirty dishes back to the Housebites delivery people, or your clever -- or almost criminally slothful -- plot will be foiled.
