Presenting a new weapon of mass destruction.

And did you hear about the woman, thrashing a Roadside Romeo (who had forcibly entered her house) with the newest weapon known to womankind - A belan?

This resulted in the said gentleman landing up in hospital licking his wounds, swallowing his pride, gulping in fear (please feel free to add any other corny cooking lines)

Moral of the story. Never piss off a woman in the kitchen.

Could one call it the Cook’s anarchybook?

Good for her! Hopefully he will think twice before he whets his appetite next time.
But Cynic, hasn't the belan always been portrayed as a weapon against men? A lot of magazines, in Telugu at least, used to have cartoons that show militant wives brandishing it at their husbands - maybe they still do. I even remember a TV report on how some women somewhere in the North also chased off some men with this, but this was long ago.

How true...have had a few escapes when I gave my wife constructive criticism about her cooking :-(

Pinku said...

hey!!!

Roadside Romeo's ought to beware but then also any other person who dares to affront...when a woman has a belan in hand. Both her deciding to use it for the wrong purpose and not using it at all...can have disastrous results.

Trinaa said...

From my experience, never piss off a woman in general. Results are usually quite lethal...

Cynic in Wonderland said...

yus yus sra. i immidiately thought of r.k. lakshmans cartoon. but i didnt know someone had brandished it so effectively that the person ended up in hospital. that is the bit which fascinated me. try as i might, i cant figure out how one can give more than just a bruise or two.

vijay see the deal is, you can criticise only if you are better than her. and if you are better than her at cooking, why dont you cook? its a lose lose scenario. so discretion MIGHT be the better part

pinku eggzactly

nandini - you have wielded it? tell. tell. tell.

trina - like i mentioned to sra. ive seen it in cartoons. but real life?

manu - same thing hehe.

amey - hmmm. apparently a LOT of women use it in real life which i didnt know about. ah well, better late than never. i can start wielding it too.

Cynic in Wonderland said...

austro - you know A-cookbook not available on the net anymore. pity. i used to longingly go and look at it whenever i was having a bad time. it was very lovely.

thanatos. that is also true.

AmitL said...

LOL...Cyn,I never really thought of the belan as a WMD-will be more careful in future. In the meantime,please don't suggest it to Mr. Bush...he's always on the lookout for WMDs.
More phrases for the 'said gentleman'- 'peeing in his pants','cursing his luck'....

Arunima said...

i sing in the kitchen holding the belan as the microphone.

Epiphany said...

I thought people went to the kitchen ONLY when they are pissed..well at least I do :)

chandni said...

chandni - eggzactly
