“BBQ Routine” (joke)

A meme called “BBQ Rules” or “The Aussie/Canadian/Dutch/Kiwi BBQ Routine” or “When a Man Does the BBQ” has been printed on many images and goes like this, with several regional variations:
   
“1. Woman buys food
2. Woman makes salad
3. Woman collects utensils and takes food to man
4. Man puts food on BBQ
5. Woman goes inside and organizes plates, etc.
6. Woman tells man the meat is burning
7. Man deals with burning meat while having another beer
8. Man takes meat of BBQ to give to woman
9. Woman serves food and clears and cleans dishes
10. Everyone praises man on great BBQ and thanks HIM
11. Man comments on how he gave woman the night off cooking
12. Man is confused by woman’s look of frustration on her face”

This is very funny and does happen often. At least, down here in “bubba” land! Jeanette

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:
 
1) The woman buys the food.
2) The woman makes the salad, vegetables, and dessert. 
3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along
with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man
who is lounging beside the grill—beer in hand. 
4) The man places the meat on the grill. 
5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery. 
6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He
thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with
the situation.
7) The man takes the meat off the grill and hands it to the woman.
8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils,
napkins,sauces, and brings them to the table. 
9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes. 
10) Everyone praises the man and thanks him for his cooking efforts.
11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed “her night off.” And, upon
seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no pleasing
some women!

Now that BBQ season has arrived, it is perhaps a good idea to remind one and all of the tremendous significance of barbecues in
the fabric of society and why men have barbecued meat from the dawn of civilization.

BBQ - It’s the only type of cooking a real man will do. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put
into motion:

1) The woman buys the food.
2) The woman makes the salad, vegetables, and dessert.
3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it
to the man who is lounging beside the grill—beer in hand.

> > Here comes the important part ....

4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he
deals with the situation.

7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.
 
8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
10) Everyone PRAISES the man and THANKS him for his cooking efforts.
11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed “her night off.” And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no
