How much cooking skill do you have to have before you are completely gay?

I figure I am pretty much a typical guy. I can throw a steak on the grill, I can make a peanut butter sandwich, I can open a package of beef jerky, and I can heat up soup. If it requires more than that, someone will have to prepare it for me. I just can't stand playing with food for a long time before I eat (barbecued steaks being the sole manly exception) and "pretty" food is lost on me. I just don't see any point to spending a lot of time preparing some concoction of artichoke hearts, brussel sprouts, and frog squeezings and then spreading that over a perfectly good piece of meat. WTF is Emeril doing with all that weird crap when he could have just barbecued the steak and had something good?

God must have intended that women should do the cooking. That's why they have small hands -- it is easier to wash inside dishes and stir the food and stuff. When men have cooking shows they invariably prepare wierd crap you couldn't get a crocodile to eat.

Now there is another thread here where a guy is asking about cake decorating and "fondants". I am sorry, but cake decorating is gay. And I don't even want to look up the word "fondant" to see what it is for fear that I might turn gay.

I say "meat and potatoes for dinner and screw your weird vegetables I have never seen before" and "any food preparation more than making a peanut butter sandwich is gay." (Exceptions are made for barbecuing. Barbecuing is manly.)

How say you all?

Real men know their way around a kitchen, it's part of that self sufficiency thing.

RAH said it best:

"A Man should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

Well, I can do smooth peanut butter sandwiches, crunchy peanut butter sandwiches, with and without several kinds of jam, etc. Likewise I can successfully heat up just about every kind of canned soup there is.

On the other hand, my wife can do everything from baking from scratch to twelve-course Thanksgiving dinners with all the trimmings. Even her peanut butter sandwiches taste better than mine. I guess I will go on being a sad excuse. It is just working out too well for me.

If you are a man who can make a roux while engaging in receptive anal intercourse without significant physical or emotional discomfort, you are gay.

Otherwise, there's no connection - and furthermore, if you're gay you're gay and you shouldn't worry about it. It's like asking "How much woodworking skill is Norwegian?"

Yes they do sir.. And there are many here.. Quiche is just like a thick omelet..

Ingredients:
1/4 cup melted butter
1-1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
dash pepper
3 eggs
1/2 cup Bisquick baking mix
1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
1/2 cup bacon (about 6 to 7 slices pre-cooked), cut or broken into small pieces.
Mix first 5 ingredients together and beat well (wire whisk works well). Stir in Bisquick. Pour into 9-inch (deep) cake pan. Put meat and cheese on top of mixture (do not mix). Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

No normal activity is ghey unless you make it ghey.

Like for example, I once sat thru an entire international fashion show. IT WAS GHEY AS FUCK!!!

The reason I did this is because I saw a cute woman standing in line and I introduced myself and sat with her thru the show.

So my actions, although ghey to the casual onlooker, were actually done for the best of non-ghey reasons: to get a piece of ass off a good looking woman.

Some things however are just plain old ghey. Like giving one of your pals a shoulder rub because he is complaining of a stiff shoulder. Nothing could make that non-ghey.

Being a good cook is not necessarily gay. But it is in the danger zone.

Too late. You're Gay. Quit your job and go back to school to learn to be an interior decorater. Start watching "Will and Grace", but not to check out Grace. Change the bars you go to. Throw out all you clothes and get a personal shopper to help you develope your new wardrobe. Might as well go with the flow. Remember, you are a GAY-American, a GAY-Republican, a GAY-Episcopalian, etc. Your gayness defines everything you do, and are. Everyone must accept, no, acclaim and affirm your gayness. Dance, Dance in the streets, you are GAY, and all should know and celebrate with you.


Robert Heinlein was Gay too. His friends didn't call him Bob-Hiney for nothing.

Traditionally, women have stayed in the cave and cooked the food.

What attracts men to cooking elaborate meals, I'll never know. Maybe, their just getting in touch with their female side.

If you want PIE, learn to cook. I will guarantee if you can make a decent meal, don't stink, and fart at the table, you will get "dessert" after dinner.

There is no level of cooking at which a man becomes gay.

There's a reason why the top chefs in the world are men.

I dare you to call Mario Batali, Tony Bourdain, Morimoto Masaharu, or Wolfgang Puck gay to their faces. Just don't be surprised when they whip out a gigantic knife and chase you out of their kitchen.

To make a dinner of macaroni and cheese with mashed potatoes as a side is not cooking. To craft a meal that would make you weep because you know you'll never taste anything as good again in your life, that's cooking, and that's a manly art.

Okay, I'll grant that Bobby Flay probably loves the cock.

I'm kind of fascinated by some of the things I have seen or read about cooked, concocted, prepared, whipped-up, etc., over the years. Early in the `90's I remember reading about mid-evil dishes, including GROG made in authentic ways that I'd like to try.

I guess I'm saying cooking is just one of a series of complex skill sets, such as building an engine/car or truck/gun/house, "mixology" (making drinks), sailing, wine tasting, long distance cycling, seduction, hunting, climbing, or flying. It can be the journey as well as the destination to satisfy the appetite.
