      IMHO, you can't sue somebody for your own poor judgment.

      1. re: sandiasingh

        i just thought it was ironic that Pepin was mentioned as Dean of International Culinary Center in the pepin v. ramsay article. then, another article said the ICC was being sued by former students.

          Hi, ritabwh:

          I'm missing the irony. Or is it that it's as difficult to sue Pepin as it is to indict a sandwich au jambon?

            hi kaleo,
            ok, you got me. :-).. what i described is not irony. ( i actually did quite well in high school english). it is simply a coincidence that i found to be humorous.

    2. I have always thought shows like hell's Kitchen was pure garbage.
      In real life someone would have stabbed Gordan in the chest at least every season.

        Hi, geno:

        You know, grabbing the nearest cleaver was *my* first thought. When I got fired I'd insist the twirp himself try to remove me from the premises.

        This "reality" stuff really has gone too far. I can't suspend disbelief at all, anymore.
