You know the old saying: When life gives you chocolate bars, plan a proposal.
The man who was savagely roasted on the internet last month for sinking his teeth into a Kit Kat bar in an abhorrent fashion has turned the viral joke into a totally precious life moment.
It all began when Weekly Standard reporter Haley Byrd shared the horrifying way her boyfriend, Evan Wilt, ate a Kit Kat: sideways, with no regard for the individual bars that are meant to be broken off and shared.

Plenty of strangers, understandably, saw this breach of candy bar conduct as a major red flag. They dispensed advice accordingly.
give him a break (up with him)

But it seems Byrd wasn’t discouraged by the Kit Kat barbarity. In fact, when Wilt offered her an engagement ring placed sideways in a Kit Kat bar, she accepted. The couple shared the news with Twitter on Tuesday, winking at the joke that made them small-time internet famous.

Of course, now Wilt can write off his Kit Kat transgression as all part of a massive proposal plan.

But the internet seems OK with that.

May the couple enjoy happy lives together, full of Kit-Kats eaten however they damn well please.
