* A Snickers commercial featured construction workers instead saying respectful things to women. The words "You're not you when you're hungry" appear. Sort of UnfortunateImplications as it implies these guys are naturally chauvinists.

* Jerry discusses this in his stand-up act in the ''{{Seinfeld}}'' pilot, when he talks about how men have no idea what women want. "Men know what men want, what do we want? We want women, that's it! It's the only thing we know for sure, it really is: we want women. How do we get them? Oh, we don't know 'bout that, we don't know. The next step after that we have no idea. This is why you see men honking car-horns, yelling from construction sites. These are the best ideas we've had so far."
