gordon ramsay doesn't swear that much

it's just that he crams a lot of other words in there too....


"GORDON Ramsay might use the f-word a lot but the Nine Network has defended the celebrity chef's profanity by saying he speaks so much in his program that the swearing represents only a small fraction of what he says.

Using one episode as an example, the broadcaster said there were 73 swear words, with 7603 words spoken in total, meaning they accounted for less than one per cent of language used in the program. That would account for about one f-word every three or four sentences."

    1. I have a love/hate thing with Ramsey-as in used to hate him, now can't get enough of the bloke!

      Here's a nice link which recaps the current ('08) season in the US&A with all bleeps firmly in place:

      1. i know!!!!

        "stupid donkies," "fat cow," "dirty missy," " great lumbering lummox," etc. . . not swearing!

        i still think GR channels lenny henry's character in "CHEF!" ;-P

          Oh, don't be silly if he did, the insults would be WAY more clever.

        2. every chef, and most of the kitchen staff I ever worked with swore like waiters, this is a non issue with me.

          1. Definately, a non-issue. I spent my whole life talking like that.
            I'm glad to see at least one show that comes close to digging the ambience in a real kitchen.
