As I read “Batting Clean-Up and Striking Out”, I realize that it is so true how men do think different from women. I can relate to living with a man and how low his awareness was for dirt. Not saying that all men are dirty, but living with my finance’ I can think back a few times when our place did get a little messing, and I would always be the one to notice it. At one point, I purposely didn’t say anything, just to see how long it would take for him to realize that our apartment was messy.

RE: Where can I read " Batting Clean-Up and Striking Out"

In Dave Berry’s Batting Clean-Up and Striking Out, first published 1988 in Dave Barry’s Greatest Hits, the author justifies that while men are oblivious to dirt females are even more oblivious to sports. In Berry’s essay, he points out how women are very tidy and seem to be capable of seeing dirty that the male eye cannot see. According to Berry’s women see premature dirt on the horizon of forming while men just see a clean bathroom. A woman cannot stand filth and must always tidy up because something that might look perfectly clean to a man looks absolutely filthy to a woman. While women are very perceptive about dirt, men are very aware of sports. Berry states that as sensitive as women are to dirt, men are to sports. Berry claims that a man’s sense are hyper aware when it comes to sports. While every sense of them is tingling with the sport a women is completely oblivious and unaware that a game or any other sport relate phenomenon is occurring. The clear difference between a man and a woman is that while a woman is more aware of dirt than a man, the man is more aware of sports than the woman is.

In the first paragraph of Batting Clean-Up and Striking Out, Dave Berry immediately sets the humorous tone of the piece by comparing differences between men and women. He says that “the primary difference between men and women is that women can see extremely small quantities of dirt.” This kicks off the humorous tone because this comparison isn’t one that is commonly made when discussing men and women. What really triggers the humorous tone is the last sentence of the first paragraph. Barry says that “babies of both sexes have a very low awareness of dirt, other than to think it tastes better than food.” By adding this statement after the first comparison, he creates a humorous tone because although the statement for the most part is true, it creates an amusing image for the reader of babies eating dirt. This sets the tone for the rest of the piece.
