About

Blinding Stew refers to a meme that was popularized in early 2024 after X / Twitter user @truewagner posted a photo of a flyer asking for parenting advice in which all the responses jokingly recommended that the child be fed "stew that blinds her for a day." More memes about "1 Day Blinding Stew" or "blinding soup" spread soon after. The concept of a stew causing a temporary blinding effect may be a reference to "Suspicious Stew," an item in the video game Minecraft.

Origin

On January 30th, 2024, X[1] user @truewagner posted an image of a flyer stuck to a wooden pole on which the heading reads, "How To 'Punish' My Daughter?" The poster goes on to explain that it was made by a single dad looking for advice on how to get his young daughter to stop biting his hair. All the handwritten responses to the poster recommend that the father feed his daughter "stew that blinds her for a day." The post gathered over 7.9 million views and 180,000 likes in a day (seen below).

huh mr. moonboi @moonboi_ Article Talk Read Edit View history More Perpetual 1-day blinding stew [edit] From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A perpetual 1-day blinding stew, also known as forever blind-for-a-day soup, hunter's pot o' blindness,[¹] or hunter's sightless stew, is a pot into which blindess- inducing foodstuffs are placed and cooked. The pot is never or rarely emptied all the way, and ingredients and liquid are replenished as necessary. [2] It is differentiated from a perpetual stew by the fact that eating it causes the eater to become blind for a day. Such foods can continue cooking for decades or longer if properly maintained. The concept is often a common element in descriptions of medieval inns, where it was often necessary to render unruly guests blind. Foods prepared in a perpetual stew have been described as being flavorful due to the manner in which the ingredients blend together.
