MachoSexual Takes Over The MetroSexual

Today’s post is funny but at the same time relevant to the turbulent times we live in. When the going gets tough, the tough get going – LITERALLY. They get going and growing. The article below is a tongue-in-cheek perspective, but shows you that we are ALL affected and adapting to the environment in different ways it appeared in this week’s BRW Magazine:

  • Hi Marc,
    we have stopped the Friday night takeaway and are cooking more at home instead (of course the meat comes from Carl’s Culinary Cuts, the HACCP Certified provider of quality meats and gourmet food products).

    Ar Carl’s, we have noticed more chepaer cuts being sold (mince, sausages etc.) than the prime steaks. Customers are still buying the great steaks, they are just having less meals with prime cuts.

    As my own business has exploded and the contract work I used do has ceased, I am now driving far less than my wife, so she takes my larger car for the kids and I use her smaller car. We are also making sure to buy petrol, even if the car is only half full on a Tuesday, as that is the cheapest day in the cycle.

    Eat well. Eat safe!
