Men, Their Meat, and Pleasing Women

Posted by on May 27, 2013

I found this prowling around the internet and HAD to share. I’m not sure who to credit for it, but it’s hysterical and TRUE! HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!

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 on 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….

    Hilarious – and so true!

    This could all be alleviated by just serving the meat. Wo needs salad and dessert? 🙂

    • Chris

      Agreed, just with a bit of variety – steak, sausages, maybe a bit of chicken.

    This is hilarious and B.A.N.G on!

    HA ! I liked this … on a more philosophical, relational, level, this just goes to show that a man needs a woman, depending on who the woman is. And a woman needs a man, depending on who the man is. Have fun. T

    If this is the case, then my wife isn’t doing enough to help out. I’ll speak with her tonight about it while I am grilling the salmon.

    Hmmmm. You obviously haven’t been to our house.

    Steps 2 and 5 are the same with us… but that’s where any similarity ends.

    Then there’s the begging. And the salivating. And the “singing the song of my people”. And the throwing of oneself at the sliding glass door. Etc.

    And no, that’s not the cat I’m speaking of — it’s my meatasaurus wife, who disdains any grilled beef that I don’t cook for her with my own bare hands.

  14. Mrs Odie 2

    This is my dad! Although, he does mix his own barbecue sauce and put it on the meat himself. Thanks for visiting and ‘liking’ my blog.

  16. skinnyuz2b

    You are so right! And then we get to clean the grill after they drip all sorts of crap on it. Very funny post.

  17. Eli@coachdaddy

    That’s not entirely true. I’ve been known to also open a bag of chips and even make guacamole. And I don’t ever remember asking for a salad.

    Very funny and true! Gene would only cook burgers and steaks, if I wanted to serve anything else I had to cook it in addition to getting everything else ready 🙂

    Note the glint in the eyes during the moment of involvement with the barbeque in our eyes. Pure hunter-gatherer satisfaction. 🙂
