"I could hit that ..."
So I am starting to get a little uncomfortable here and my wife is considering banning me from this website.

Over the past few months ... well, I guess as long as I've been here ... there have been a number of posts showing pictures of food. Every time such an entry is posted someone makes the following comment: "I could hit that all day long."

I'm beginning to wonder if people know what that means. Why do you want to do those types of things to what otherwise appears to be a perfectly decent meal.

Needless to say, my wife says that if people are going to be doing that stuff, then I can't be here any more ...

Quote:Background: An unfortunate McDonald's advertising campaign, circa early 2005, developed under the assumption that the use of urban lexicon might appeal to a previously underrepresented demographic, i.e., the burger-fetishists.

"Double Cheeseburger? I'd hit it. I'm a Dollar Menu guy."

But 90% of people don't mean what your wife "knows it" to mean.

And in BBQ parlance it has become synonymous with, the McDonalds version of events, instead of the Urban Dictionary version.

I do hope she lets you stay.

My use of it today on the other thread was a joke between T and myself, we've made the same comments that your wife has, and we laugh when talking about other threads on other BBQ sites, where things get hit left, right and center.

I for one would like to apologize if I soured your wife to the site, and will refrain from even thinking with that phraseology from now on, no matter how good a meal looks!

I'll go back and edit the other comment. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.utahbbq.org/viewtopic.php?t=2095">http://www.utahbbq.org/viewtopic.php?t=2095</a><!-- m -->

Respice = you didn't use enough spice the first time! adspice = you ought to add spice, you know? prospice = you should be an advocate for spice!

Re: "I could hit that ..."
Alright, somebody explain this to the slow country boy here... As far as I've ever known the phrase "I'd hit that!" simply means that I'd eat it right here and now and all day long. So unless someone spells out a good reason not to say this anymore, I'll probably keep doing it :roll: Is this one of those deals like "That's what she said" that people use to take all sorts of weird stuff in contexts that they were never meant to be???

It's slang that could mean many things. Language, whether it be in the Bible or in common parlance, means what it means in context. It shouldn't be read as if it were in a vacuum.

Exactly. While, for obvious reasons, I can't recommend that site, it illustrates what I meant.

Thanks for bringing that to everyone's attention. I think we do get a little carried away sometimes, and it is good to have a reality check. I think I may have made some offensive remarks myself. If I have , I do apologize if I have offended anyone. It has never been my intentions to offend anyone. I too will becareful what I type here.

That sure was good stuff!

OK, so I was actually just joking ... I find it very humerous that we on the BBQ cites use a lot of sexual inuendoes when talking about our meat .... hmmmm, did I say that right?

You know what I mean:

"food porn"
"I'd hit that"
"Let me take that into my private sanctuary and teach it a lesson about life"

You know ...

Re: "I could hit that ..."
I am 62 years old and have NEVER heard that definition before. I doubt that anyone on this forum would consider me "sheltered" in any case. The reference I have made that involves "I'd hit that all day" referred to a buffet, a table full of Amish desserts, or a BBQ spread of some sort. So many dishes, so little time!
A lttle confused and always hungry!!!

Leave it to a lawyer to get us all worked up, dude I thought you were serious. Thank goodness not, I hate political correctness and am terrible at it! I'd have ended up lurking here in shame, rejected by all those that I love...
