The recipes do result in delicious sandwiches.


He thinks sandwiches are better than sex. And just like sex, he won't get any more after their marriage. Mwuhahaha!

Re: Hon, make me a sandwich

Here's one that will probably be less debatable. Photographer wants non-fat, non-slut, non-black girlfriend, and is willing to pay a $1000 finder's fee.

Re: Hon, make me a sandwich

Sexism is only kept alive by the stupidity of women. There, I said it. As long as the majority of women is okay with how they are treated by men and depicted in media, it won't stop. As long as female actresses think they somehow elevate their career by doing nude photoshoots and nude film scenes, they shouldn't complain about sexism. Think of that underwear scene in the latest Trek, and similar scenes in all other films and TV shows. It was absolutely mindless, based on the exploitation of the female form, and the authors didn't think about it. All it needed was the actress saying "Guys, this is stupid, I won't do it." The need to somehow "sex it up" is an inherent sexist one. It's absolutely not necessary to do so. Just like Jeri Ryan and Jolene Blalock were absolutely okay with running around in skintight catsuits for no fucking reason other than being masturbation material for the nerdy geeks. Just say no to shit like that.

She is making him sandwiches thinking it's all romantic. And that other dude is going to find his girl for the price, and that girl will also tell herself how it's okay.

That's complete nonsense and you should feel bad for posting it.

I think they're just having a bit of fun. When these things are published it always brings out people who have extreme reactions to things that just aren't that important.

No problem. I realize, in comparison, this isn't bad at all (just my luck to post around the same time as that story came out).

I wouldn't call her sexy.


This sandwich thing - Nah, I'd never do that. Too much self-esteem.
I think that, sadly, JR has a point. There is a lot of latent sexism and women shouldn't tolerate it.
The prob is if we protest against such treatment we get accused of whining, constant complaining, having no sense for fun etc. etc.
It's a lose/lose situation, most of the time.

No, that's completely insane, too.
