Bachelor's Handbag

What is a bachelor's handbag?

A takeaway roast chicken

No, a bachelor's handbag is not this season's hot new male fashion accessory. Instead, Australians use this cheeky slang term to refer to a takeaway roast chicken, packaged in a plastic bag.

This term's implication, of course, is that cooking-averse bachelors are the ones who most often purchase takeaway roast chickens, because doing so is an easy way to secure a hot meal. So if you're in the market for a new man, it may be time to take a trip to your local grocery store and scout for bachelor's handbags. Just remember, though - any man carrying one likely can't cook.
