Soft-spoken chef Gordon Ramsay announced this week that he's putting his long-running show Kitchen Nightmares to bed, which sadly means fewer clips of the man verbally destroying his pupils. You can still hear the Brit tell people their food tastes like feces on Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef, but it marks the end of a very profane era. In solidarity, we found 10 of his nastiest soundbites. Lots of inappropriate language is obviously ahead, but you already knew that, you massive idiot. (Sorry, Gordon's words, not ours.)
10. "The chicken is pinker than your f***ing lipstick."
9. "Sounds like the f***ing weirdo on Dr. Phil."
7. "Right now, I'd rather eat poodle sh*t than put that in my mouth."
6. "Why did the chicken cross the road? Because you didn't f***ing cook it."
5. "You still look fabulous by the way. You should be covering GQ. Front cover, Captain Dick."
4. "I feel like I'm eating a f***ing flip-flop with mayonnaise."
3. "I wouldn't trust you running a bath, let alone a f***ing restaurant."
2. "My Gran could do better, and she's dead!"
And finally, the absolute meanest thing he's ever said...
