oh, dang, i didn't see that. now that you made it clear, it actually makes more sense for it to mean the latter, because then to say the other one, one can just specify "ready for us to eat"

In response to “oh, dang, i didn't see that. now that you...

I think "the chicken is ready to eat" is a famous ambiguous sentence

it's the example that taught me about ambiguity

so your interpretation was right but so is the alternative one
but to know exactly what the person meant,
we'd have to asked the writer

so with this post
"every opinion should not matter"
every opinion can mean that all opinions should not matter
or it can mean that not every single opinion has to matter

it depends on how the reader perceives the words
I think it may have to do with connotations too
