Well, he does look like the kind of guy who would prefer eating a sandwhich to eating a taco. If you know what I mean.

If my guy ever said 300 sandwiches = an engagement ring, I would make all 300 in one day and make him eat them and watched his stomach explode like the guy in Seven.

See... here's the thing. I don't care about these people. I do not care about the author's caring about these people and I do not care about subby's caring about the author's caring about these people.

Now all that is left to do is for some Fark snarkwit to come along and point out how my lack of caring is obviously false due to the fact I went to the bother of clicking the article, reading it then clicking on the thread and commenting on said article.

I care about that Farker least of all.

Always been like this. Though no reason to be vague... the "things to be upset about" you mentioned is always men. No matter what the subject is, it is the fault of men, men did it, men ruined it, men got in the way of it, men destroyed it, men oppressed it, or any other variation where men can be hated as a result of whatever the story is.

According to Jezebel.com, women are perfect examples of humanity and men are everything that is wrong with the world. That's about it.

Well, that might explain the obsession with sandwiches. Scandinavians pretty much spend all of their time eating open-face sandwiches, whenever they're not solving dastardly sex crimes or ascribing to Neo-Nazism.

Hey, genius? It's not a snap judgement if you're reading excerpts from the blog...that turn out to be  literally the content of the page. Jezebel didn't take anything out of context, didn't screw up facts.  It's the same damn scenario--a moran cares more about sandwiches than anything else, and another moran is sticking around for some reason. That's stupid. It'd be stupid no matter what gender was on what side, what color the people involved, or if the people involved were three-headed aliens.

I feel sorry for your love life if you don't see there is at least a chance that this is a romantic gesture based on a non serious joke. Jezebel's response is infantile. Why do you think it is healthy to view every action as some power game?


Because this is who you are talking to:

I am also firmly of the opinion that most people in love are stupid anyway. Myself included.


This is the definition of a tempest in a teapot. Jezebel is making an argument that relationships are bad. The argument that romance is bad. People get out of relationships what they want. 300 sandwiches is not an example of imagined bogeymen. But I think you already know this.

Jezebel was a princess, identified in the Hebrew Book of Kings as the daughter of Ethbaal, King of Tyre (Phoenicia) and the wife of Ahab, king of north Israel.

According to the biblical accounts, Jezebel incited her husband King Ahab to abandon the worship of Yahweh and encourage worship of the deities Baal and Asherah instead. Jezebel is said to have persecuted the prophets of Yahweh, and to have fabricated false evidence of blasphemy against an innocent landowner who refused to sell his property to King Ahab, causing the landowner to be put to death. For these transgressions against the God and people of Israel, the Bible relates, Jezebel met a gruesome death - thrown out of a window by members of her own court retinue, and the flesh of her corpse eaten by stray dogs.



Yeah... Nice farkin' role model, ladies.

PsiChick: mediablitz: The woman who wrote the story doesn't sound bitter AT ALL.

Because naturally, when watching someone make three hundred sandwiches for a guy whose morning line is 'why haven't you made me a sandwich yet', the first reaction is to be jealous and bitter that you can't attract THAT fine specimen of humanity.

/Seriously, articles like this are great reminders of why being single can be a good thing.


Perhaps if you read the woman's actual blog, instead of the rant filled man hate biatch fest on Jezebel, you would have a better understanding of the situation. But then again you may simply prefer to hate a guy you know nothing about.

Coco LaFemme: Maybe this is me not fully understanding the point you're trying to make, but there's a difference between doing something nice for your partner and "serving" them. If I'm making myself lunch and my boyfriend asks me to make him a sandwich as well (or some of whatever it is I'm cooking), I'll go ahead and do it since I'm already there and already cooking. I'm doing that to be nice because I love him, and I like doing nice things for him. If he expects, insists, or demands that I cook for him or do other things for him because it's my job to "serve" him, I'm going to kick him in the balls and throw his sorry ass out.

A relationship of equals does not contain servitude.


Or, the woman in question took a silly quip and ran with it so she could make a sandwich foodie site, complete with recipes.

Because every good one I've been in involved lots of teasing and jokes.
