Parrish posted a quote from Paul McCartney last weekend that came in response to something utterly stupid that TV Chef Gordon Ramsay said recently. I didn’t really think anything of it until I read the full statement given during an interview with the UK Daily Mirror:

“My kids are very naughty. So when they don’t do their homework I take them out and put them on the electric fence I keep my two lambs in and give them a little jolt. It’s only a little tingle, they spell brilliantly now.”

“My biggest nightmare would be if my kids ever came up to me and said, ‘Dad, I’m a vegetarian’. Then I would sit them on the fence and electrocute them.”

Really? That’s your biggest nightmare?

We all know that Ramsay is a pretty giant tool, but his latest stunt on his show The F Word, was really low. On it, he persuaded 50 vegetarians to sample veal and told Girls Aloud’s Cheryl Cole “vegetarians aren’t welcome here”.

All-in-all, his reputation as an insensitive ass clown continues to grow.

    And he’s a dry humor kind of guy.
    Have you not heard of exageration or sarcasm? He’s kidding about zapping his kids.. his kids are his pride and joy.
    He may seem like an ass- but I invite you to work in a pro-kitchen like that… it’s harsh. People- especially head chefs, do not hold your hand.

    I hate when people tell me (or others making a valid point) to “Relax” I kind of hate it so much that I want to see them grilled out on the fence with Ramsey. There is no need to be an insensitive fuck Sharon – even in a pro kitchen. And it’s not humor when he actually HAS the vegetarians sampling poor baby cows. I bet if someone cooked his kids up and ate them he wouldn’t be laughing. And in my eyes those cows lives are as important as his stupid children.

    I think i have to agree with erin here cuz there are just some things you dont say. Whether if hes kidding or not, its a really mean and stupid thing to say or do and shows how much of a jerk he really is.
