There is a small movement that has quietly swept the nation: Steak and a BJ (yes – blow job) day. It is a men’s movement in response to Valentine’s Day. Men have had enough with women having an entire day to be spoiled rotten. They want their own day, and so have made it.
According to Urban Dictionary, the leading authority in all things slang, vile and inappropriate (read: hilarious), March 14th, or Steak and a BJ day, was created by former radio DJ, Tom Birdsey. As he puts it:
For those of you that don’t know about Steak and BJ Day here is the skinny. Valentines Day is February 14th. It’s a female romantic holiday manufactured for women to feel that they are special. In a constant search to help out the male population Birdsey gives you Steak and BJ Day, the male Valentine’s Day. From now until eternity, March 14th will always be considered Steak and BJ Day. This holiday has been created so your ladies can have a day to show their man just how much you love him. No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town. The name of the holiday explains it all; just a Steak and a BJ. That’s it. This twin pairing of Valentine’s Day and Steak and BJ Day will usher in a new age of love as men everywhere will try much harder in February to ensure a more memorable March!
And don’t feel left out if you’re man is a vegetarian/vegan/hater-of-receiving-bj’s (I kid on that last one – I think that man does not exist). Just think of whatever thing your man loves that you hate (i.e. spending 8 hours playing whatever military game is the newest) and give him that.
And I say, why don’t our men deserve that special day, once a year, devoted to them? And no fair saying, “I gave him kids, cook/clean, make all the money” or whatever menial daily task you perform for him, is enough. Because he can come back and give the same laundry list as a reason not to give you a special day. Besides, Mr. Birdsey was pretty genius in putting the special day a month after Valentine’s Day so that our guys would try much harder to ensure an amazing March. All I know is that the year I decided to start celebrating March 14th, my now-husband proposed on Valentine’s Day…hmmmmmm……
