Beef cake touches beef steak horror!

The most activity you can expect from himself

BBQ  RULES                     A friend sent me this and it made me larf out loud. Too true.

We  are now in the middle of our usually very short BBQ season. Therefore it  is important to refresh your memory on the  etiquette of this sublime  outdoor  cooking activity  . When a  man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain  of events are put into  motion:

Routine…
(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.
(4)  The  woman remains outside the compulsory three meter  exclusion zone where the exuberance of  testosterone and other manly bonding activities  can take place without the interference of the  woman.

Here  comes the important  part:
(5) THE MAN  PLACES THE MEAT ON THE  GRILL.

More  routine….
(6)  The  woman goes inside to organize the plates and  cutlery.
(7)  The  woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is  looking great. He thanks her and asks if she  will bring another beer while he flips the meat

Important  again:
(8)  THE MAN  TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE  WOMAN.

More  routine…
(9) The  woman prepares the plates, salad, bread,  utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to  the table.

(10) After  eating, the woman clears the table and does the  dishes.

And  most important of  all:
(11)  Everyone  PRAISES the  MAN and  THANKS  HIM  for his  cooking efforts.

(12)  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!

    Very funny…. and (as you say) very, very true. Beef cakes in the kitchen are a too rare appearance in my house – reckon I need some of what this gal's got:
