Submariner (Male) Conversion Tables: Teaspoons Down!

One of the best things about the web is the availability of handy conversions. There is no adult male who has not been exposed to the myriad uselessness of idiotic conversions only chefs can remember, such as the garlic of all conversions:

Cooking Measurement Equivalent
6 tablespoons = 3/8 cup (wow, that's really useful)

What's missing? From the French:
Among others, chefs call them a pinch, a dash, a drop and a gill. Be careful ... the drop, for instance comes in three varieties (metric, UK, and US)!

What is a pinch? Sailors say a pinch is rump dependent.
Want to get slapped? For larger rumps a pinch is the thumb and three fingers. For a more appreciated pinch, it was a thumb and two fingers. For hippies, it was a thumb and one (that is what chefs use).

Most males are at a permanent deficit for attention to cups other than AB&Cs.

What are male conversions? You can find the most important ones here, courtesy of a woman, Carolyn Smagloski, president of CQ Web Wide LLC!

Whatever you do. don't pass this on to strategic or objective thinkers. You know who you are Van Hornbeam and Chappaquiddickmatic. And many thanks to my talented shipmate at a geezer's corner for a culinary inspiration as a change of pace.
