1) BBQ is short for barbecue. NRC is the abbreviation for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Folks at the NRC love BBQ as who would not? When one of their employees says, “I’m going to nuke the leftover meatloaf, does she mean she’s going to reheat in the microwave or should we be heafing to the fallout shelters?
2) This BBQ Meatloaf recipe uses barbecue sauce.
3) This reminds me of joke they might tell at the NRC.
Q: Why don’t they eat BBQ Meatloaf at the Chemical Safety Board?
A: The meatloaf falls through the holes in the grill. Ha! Ha! Ha!
