Because, we do think we’re awesome, and our hungry-self is all, ”Yeah, fries before guys.”

Urban Dictionary
fries before guys
The unwritten law that your fries (female friends) should always become before guys (male with whom you are/hoping to have a relationship with). Most used as a trump card by your fries when they feel you are becoming whipped.
Origin: “Bros before hoes” for female.
