美味しい夫の作り方

出張先でたまたま目についたステラおばさんのクッキー。
帰りに飛行機の中でおやつにしようと数枚購入。
機内でお茶をもらって、ポリポリ食べていて、
ふと、紙袋に書かれた細かな英語に目が行き、
いったい何が書かれているのだろうと読んでみると・・・

How To Cook A Husband
A good many husbands are utterly spoiled by mismanagement. Some women keep them constantly in hot water; others let them freeze by their carelessness and in-difference. Some keep them in a stew by irritating ways and words. Others roast them; some keep them in a pickle all their lives.

へええ、こんなことが書いてあるとは。

以下、ちょっと難しい言い回しもあるようですが、ご興味ある方はどうぞ。

It cannot be supposed that any husband will be tender and good managed in this way, but they are really delicious when properly treated. In selecting your husband you should not be guided by the silvery appearance, as in buying mackerel, nor by the golden tint, as if you wanted salmon. Be sure and select him yourself, as tastes differ. Don't go to the market for him, as the best are always brought to your door. It is far better to have none unless you know how to cook him. A preserving kettle of finest porcelain is best, but if you have nothing but an earhenware pipkin, it will do, with care. See that the linenin which you wrap him is nicely washed and mended, with the required number of buttons and strings nicely sewed on.
