A gchat conversation between my gentleman caller and me:

Readthisbitch:  dude, the “make me a sandwich” joke
Gentleman Caller: sucks?
Readthisbitch: a lot of guys think it’s one of those things that “it’s so played that it’s funny”
Readthisbitch: well…somehow still not funny!
Gentleman Caller: was never funny

And that’s one of the reasons that he is the man.
That expression is just such a fun, popular, colloquial way to dismiss women. The “joke” format totally disguises the real condescension behind it. I can’t even tell you’re an asshole!
