    throw a flank steak

    Dear all,

    What is meant by "throw a flank steak" in this context:

    A:she’s always been offbeat, but now she’s just off.
    B:May be it’s menopause.
    A: No way. There’s been no weeping, sweating or throwing a flank steak.

    I don't know if it menat literally, but I would expect "throw up" I don't know.

    Thanks a lot.

    Perhaps it means throwing a fit, or an emotional freak-out.

    what that has to do with "flank steak"? Does it have a special connotation?

    Thanks.

    None that I know of. It's a piece of uncooked meat, so it sounds like something you would throw only if you got very angry.
