(from an email I got today)

We are about to enter the summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity, as it's the only type of cooking a 'real' man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:


(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it o n a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

Here comes the important part:


More routine....

(5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
(6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

Important again:


More routine....

(8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
(9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:
(10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
(11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off" and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women....Pin It

This is the first time I'm seeing this!! So true, and so so funny. I'm going to think about it now every time my husband puffs up his chest and talks about bbq'ing.

This is SO true. You'd think with the way they act like they invented fire or something that they had done all the work.. really its just a metaphor for everything else in life.

Got to love being in CA though. We went to 2 BBQ's this weekend!

The accuracy is frightening!! And what's with the super big BBQ tools. I mean, c'mon. Are those REALLY necessary??

Carin said...

LOL!! Sad but true.

Jennifer Owens said...

HILARIOUS! How true is that?!!!

Connie said...

Not in this house buster! I have to ask (yell) for help and then I make him do the clean up.
Oh~ you've been tagged!

I love the truthiness in this, I can use that word now that it has been added to Webster's dictionary, thanks Cobert, back on subject, my husband does all of these things, and everyone does compliment him. So not fair.
