they do things a little differently


who: The Parisian and The Husband
what: BBQing 
where: Chez Brother-in-Law
when: a couple of Thursdays ago
why: ? ? ? 


I can kind of understand The Parisian's use of the rake (allow me to reiterate...  I can KIND OF understand, but I don't really), but why The Husband is wielding an ax is beyond me.

  6. As I always do while in Europe, when things are just too "different" or strange to wrap my North American head around, I always just mutter something like..."Europe is beyond lame" and Husband says, "what did you say?" ...and I'll exclaim "Europe is amazing, let's stay!"

    To which of course he looks at me like I'm totally wackadoodle.
    They do indeed do things their "own way"....

  8. Maybe instead of butchering meat first, they just give the animal a little too much to drink, let it pass out, and then throw it on the grill. The husband has the axe on hand in case it comes to.

  9. It's a man thing....french or otherwise. There are never any LOGICAL explanations.

  10. Hahaha classic! The French are very different. Why anyone would ever need an ax is beyond me... maybe to cut the logs?

    I think playing with fire is something you never outgrow:)

  12. It's really no different than here - the tools are strange, but the attitude is definately the same.

  13. The ax is obviously for relatives who ask too many questions :-). This is my first visit to your site and I've spent some time browsing through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. You've created a wonderful spot for your readers to enjoy. I know I certainly enjoyed my visit here and plan to return. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  15. BAHAHA! I'm sure my husband would approve.

  16. Maybe if the meat suddenly decides to come back to life?

  17. Was there beer involved? That seems like the kind of thing Wilzie would do when there is beer involved...

  18. This.
    Is.
    Epic.

    I could see Mr. A doing something like this -- sober, mind you.

    Then again, we do weird shit all the time.

  19. Most unusual those two men. Raking a fire perhaps on the ground to spread the coals to cool and die..but on the BBQ? hhhmmm. Good thing you caught them!

  20. Such a funny picture, I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This picture needs to be made into a poster. What it'll say who knows but this is too funny of a pic not to make it into a hilarious picture.

    Thanks for the giggle. I really needed it today.

  22. that is not how Texans barbecue!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is hilarious! Now I feel like BBQ.
    Thanks so much for the kind comment on my last post. Things are looking a LOT better today! :)

  24. I believe the proper caption should be
    Vendredi Treize, Le Barbecue (Friday the 13th, the Barbecue). The axe sure gives me a picture of a horror movie. Hilarious though

  25. Is the animal thrown on the grill while still alive then killed as it cooks?

    Is it raked over the coals so to speak?

  26. Wow, that is a new way BBQ...efficient, very efficient. Leave it to the Parisians to get things done, lol. Looks like a grand time either way :)

  27. Oh, you never fail to produce a laugh from me. Your life is so entertaining. Each time I come here I think you should write a book... your story told w/ your sense of humor would be a huge hit! xo

  28. I think testosterone does strange things to boys -- and outdoor plumbing. It messes with their head and causes all kinds of odd things to happen...maybe it's le mistral too. Bless. lol.
