Signs found in kitchens
I clean the house every other day. Today is the other day!
My house was clean last week. Too bad you missed it!
A clean kitchen is the sign of a wasted life.
I came. I saw. I decided to order take out.
If you don't like my standards of cooking...lower your standards.
A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen, and this kitchen is delirious.
If we are what we eat, then I'm easy, fast, and cheap.
A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.
Help keep the kitchen clean. Eat out.
My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines.
The Kitchen Sink
During the Second World War British soldiers would say, ‘they are throwing everything at us but the kitchen sink’ to describe a heavy bombardment.
Hell's Kitchen 地狱厨房
Made famous, most recently, by Martin Scorcese's movie, “The Gangs of New York”, Hell’s Kitchen is an area of New York City with a rich and notorious history.
In the 19th Century it became a major industrial centre and home to over 350,000 immigrants, mostly from famine ravished Ireland. The residents lived in hastily erected tenement buildings in between factories and slaughterhouses.
In 1863 the area was the scene of a three-day riot in protest of the Civil War Conscription Act. There are no reliable figures for how many died during the riots but it was certainly in the thousands. The aftermath saw countless homeless children roaming the streets of. These street urchins soon formed into gangs and by the end of the 19th Century Hell’s Kitchen became the crime capital of the U.S.
The name Hell's Kitchen refers to the area between 39th and 59th streets, and from 8th Avenue to the Hudson River. The origin of the term is ⑥attributed to a conversation between two policemen. While observing a small riot on 39th street the younger of the two said, ‘This place is hell itself’, to which the older policeman replied, ‘Hell's a mild climate. This is Hell's Kitchen’!
