A New Yorker:
It's BBQ time! After many long months of cold and winter, we are finally coming up to spring and BBQ season. Therefore, it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this outdoor cooking ritual, 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 is put into motion:
1. The woman buys the food.
2. The woman makes a salad, prepares 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 - drink in hand.
Here comes the important part:
4. THE.....MAN.....PLACES.. ...THE.....MEAT.....ON.....THE.....GRILL.
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 drink while he deals with the
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
Happy BBQ Season everyone!
