Him: “Hubba. Hubba. Check out that neck!”
Her: “He’s staring at me again. Why does he stare at me that way?”

Wow…I understand they’re trying to show that husbands and wives are “equal partners” in household tasks, etc., but was it even possible for them to make this poor guy look more effete? He reminds me of June Cleaver in the kitchen, fawning over Ward!
(Oh, and which one of them has the rich daddy, who’s paying for that nice apartment while they’re in school? My student apartments sure didn’t look like that!)
What is the most strange is that the guy is wearing an apron. I like to cook for my wife just as much as the next guy, but I can count on the fingers of one foot how many times I have worn an apron to do so. Does any other guy out there wear an apron when they cook?
Heh…point taken, Kim.
Seriously though, if they wanted the photo to convey that both men and women can take care of household chores, etc., why not choose a model who doesn’t look like Mr. Rogers on estrogen??
It surprised me too when I saw the picture. Yep, times is a changin.
He does look like a sissy. Probably mostly due to the apron. The picture would have a more shocking effect if they found some hairy dude with dirty word tattoo–maybe a tattoo like “bad as* in the kitchen.” I don’t know. One step at a time I suppose.
