“Rump roast is a good example on how to make ends meat”

Do people who cook rump roast (rump steak) try to “make ends meat”? This is a pun, of course, on “make ends meet.”

“thinks cooking a rump roast is making ends meat...” was posted on Twitter by Natasha Hurt on July 27, 2010. “RT @thesulk: Times are tough. Thinking of cooking a rump roast just to make ends meat” (the original tweet is no longer available) was posted on Twitter by Eri (and others) on October 4, 2012. “If you cook, a rump roast you’re literally making ends meat” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on March 24, 2020. “Rump roast is a good example on how to make ends meat” was posted on Twitter by Little Greenis on January 10, 2022.


Wikipedia: Rump steak
Rump steak is a cut of beef. The rump is the division between the leg and the chine cut right through the aitch bone. It may refer to:

. A steak from the top half of an American-cut round steak primal
. A British- or Australian-cut from the rump primal, largely equivalent to the American sirloin

In these hard economic times, will rump steak help to make ends meat?

Couldn’t afford to buy two rump roasts last night, so I guess I can’t make ends meat.

Who called it “butchering rump roasts” and not “making ends meat”?

The butcher who sold everything except rump roasts went bankrupt because he couldn’t make ends meat.
