“Behind every great man is the drawer I need to get into. Why are you even in the kitchen right now”

"Behind every great man is a great(er) woman” is an old saying. Women are often in the kitchen—a place where most men shouldn’t be.

This jocular variation was posted on Twitter by human aaron on August 29, 2020, and it went viral (over 285,000 likes):

“Behind every great man is the drawer I need to get into. Why are you even in the kitchen right now.”
