Man Meat

The other day, I happened upon an article about the interplay of meat and gender roles.  It turns out that women in general (even vegetarians) find men who don't eat meat wimpy in general.  In contrast, those who are seen eating meat are viewed as more manly and powerful.  Now, I know that I'm no Chuck Norris, BUT when I'm out on a date trying to impress a girl for the first time, she doesn't have to know that!  Thus, here, we have a signaling game with asymmetric information.  How do I plan to exploit this, you ask?  Good question!  I shall order the meal from the movie below then pull out my bacon wallet (for those of you who have seen it, you know I'm not kidding), and pay for the date.
