Barry is speaking to the male audience, by responding snidely to negative stereotypes, and proving that we are lucky to have men. It is a commonly known fact that women think men cannot find anything in the kitchen. Many women believe, "that a man can open a refrigerator containing pounds of assorted meats, poultry, cold cuts, condiments, vegetables, frozen dinners, snack foods, desserts, etc., and ask, with no irony whatsoever, 'Do we have anything to eat". In his article, a woman wrote him asking, "Why do men open a drawer and say, 'Where is the spatula"' instead of, you know, looking for it". He remarked facetiously by saying, "The man does not have time to look for the spatula. Why? Because he is busy thinking". According to Barry we are lucky that men think so much. He says inside a man’s head "his brain is humming like a high-powered computer, processing millions of pieces of information, and producing important insights such as, 'this feels good!'.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
