Bet more women had their cooking skill maxed out.

My condolences to the women in your life.

You want to know who has cooking maxed? Rachael Ray, Nigella Lawson, Paula Deen, and Cat Cora.You know who else has cooking maxed? Emeril Legasse, Alton Brown, Bobby Flay, and Masaharu Morimoto.Turns out both men and women know how to cook. Who knew?

whatever. I thought it was funny.

@DeathPaladin You forgot Gordon Ramsey! He's definitely my all-time favorite TV chef.
whitfield is only getting downgraded because we all laughed and then felt guilty.

And not only is DeathPaladin right, professional chefs are *massively* predominantly male. It's an extremely chauvinistic real-world profession, and women are frequently subjected to significant sexism in it.

Who let Shrike out of the kitchen again?

Seriously guys, sexism isn't funny. It's still a problem.

I think they took you a wee bit too seriously. But you should know better that there are different jokes for different crowds, and this is a crowd that(for the most part) doesn't find this kinda joke funny. And seriously guys. None of you have ever told a blond joke, cultural joke, a sexist joke, an ageist joke, a religious joke before? I suppose when someone turns on Comedy Central, you frown and leave the room? Hate Family Guy and South Park?

@Dave: No I haven't and yes I do (especially for Family Guy and American Dad dear god there's a lot of suck there), because when you're bullied and on the butt end of jokes constantly until nobody takes you seriously or cares, you start to go, "wow this is shitty, I wouldn't wish this on other people".Of course, empathy's dying art.

Violet- Humor doesn't show a lack of empathy. There are appropriate times and places to show either. Laughing about something is humor....it's when you stop joking, or take it too far, that you cross a line.

@Dave:http://www.derailingfordummies.com/#sensitiveDamn, it's been a whole 45 minutes since I've seen that bingo square trotted out on an internet comment thread. Congrats for coming in right on time with that mindblowing insight. And a hint about comedy: if it can be copypasted from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader or the book of jokes that got passed around your school bus in middle school, it's probably not funny.But hey, women be shoppin'!

I'm male, a chef in real life ... and so is my (female) main :D

I don't see how your religion is genetically ingrained into you. And I sincerely hope that Family Guy is satirising crude stereotypes by channelling them through an oaf. Though after watching the Cleveland show I'm forced to conclude that's true. Anyway, the worst thing about sexist jokes is that almost without exception, they'd get a "hurr" from someone with a double digit IQ in the 1960s. Since then their quality hasn't improved an iota.

As a girl who does indeed enjoy cooking (and maxes out every profession possible in WoW regardless) I wasn't offended...I just didn't find it funny. Maybe that's why he's being downrated? We don't have to think a comment is "ZOMG OFFENSIVE TO MY GENDER HOW DARE YOU!!111" to downrate it. I just didn't think it was that quality of a comment. It was basically "Hurr hurr old joke about women cooking that is as old as time." Not particularly clever nor creative and didn't really contribute anything to the discussion. *shrug*

Unless there is a grill involved. Then the men can carbonize the meat whilst chestpounding and spewing testosteroneOh, I'm sorry Whitfield, you were joking?
12-23-2010 @ 5:26AM
Except on iron chef if someone is picking Cat Cora, i change te channel.... (shes just not fun to watch ya know!)

Gordon Ramsey's food is actually quite text book plain. I have eaten at two of his restaurants when he was in the back and the food was good, consistent, but....meh. Difference between British and french chefs I guess. Brits are all about marching in line, making the plate look exactly like it would if you looked the dish up on foodipedia. Frenchies have imaginations and will take risks to surprise their clients, not always in a good way, but usually interesting!
