My husband would do it in a second, if it were in our town!

None of the attendees have a father that will do that?

Posted by: ghostsniper at June 10, 2017 2:45 PM

Not if they're black.

Man that would be a bunch of fun!

You can tell they're not black just from the ad. No black male over 18 would admit to being unable to grill better than anyone, ever, in history. The same claim applies to screwing.

It's probably not urban millennials, either. They would have specified that the beer was from a specific neighborhood microbrewery, and the meat from a local organic butcher.

When I was 21-28, I had my own. All my friends had their own, or theirs had died in WW2 or an accident or something. At a younger age, there was a kid lived across from our back field that my brother hung around with whose dad had left his mother several years earlier. He was a weird kid, but we didn't understand why.

Seems kinda weerd. I can't imagine being involved in such a thing when I was 21-26 yo. I was grillin', with wood, when I was that age, almost every dam night (I was single then) and more than ample quantities of brews and everything else.

The ad says to bring your own grill. Yeah right. Once installed and broken in a decent grill is not meant to be moved long distances.

I bought our current grill at Walmart 3 years ago and it still cooks like 4 mfr's. It was the end of the season and it was brand new in the box for exactly $100. It's a BHG (Better Homes & Gardens), no I never heard of that model before but for $100 I was willing to take a chance. It's almost 6' long, has 4 long burners from front to back, cast iron grids, a side burner and on the other side it has a searing burner. I never seen a searing burner before. It's mostly stainless steel with black accents and it holds (2) 20# tanks. whoa

The cooker isn't getting paid but he gets to drink brews with people he doesn't know and has to come up with humorous things to say, like a built-in floor show. Then, after he's good and soused he's supposed to clean up and load it all up and drive home drunk.

Such a deal!

Think I'd rather just stay at home and avoid the whiney pains in the asses and cook whatever I want on my own grill and drink my own brews just like I do all the time anyway.

They can hire a catering service and a local commediene, maybe Kathy Griffin is available....

Growing up without a father in the '50s (because of WWII) was in fact to be a weird kid, and nobody understood why. I'm just now starting to apprehend the weight of that, too.

As far as these guys go, I'm surprised they're not similarly advertising for a Mommy to put band-aids on their owies. How brave of them to do without.

The picture here was apparently taken from the internet and the man is a Canadian who does not drink that much beer. He was interviewed on a local radio station and claimed he contacted them and was turned down because drinking LOTS of beer was a prerequisite.

There were no Boy Scouts in the group that bought that ad.

Ghostsniper identified the hitch in their plan; anyone who would fit those criteria would already have a family to do all those heartwarming dad things with. Why go hang around with a bunch of strangers?

In fact, I don't think those guys thought this all the way through. Do they really want to find out what someone who would voluntarily do this is really like? One begins to conjure up the outlines of a crime/horror story, out of this advertisement.

It could be called "The Grilling."

Heh..."To Serve Mankind"

I live close by, and run a mean BBQ. They lost me at the word: "whilst." That is some piss poor writing.
