“The worst thing about accidents in the kitchen is that you usually have to eat them”

"The worst thing about accidents in the kitchen is that you usually have to eat them” is a jocular line about cooking. “The worst thing about accidents in the kitchen (says Franklin P. Jones in Quote) is that you usually have to eat them anyway” was printed in July 1973 newspapers. Franklin P. Jones (1908-1980) produced many humorous quips and quotes.

Franklin P. Jones (1908 - 1980) was a Philadelphia reporter, public relations executive and humorist. He wrote quips and quotes that entertained readers of major publications for years.

Mr. Jones was known nationally during the 1940s and 50s for his column “Put it this Way” in the Saturday Evening Post. “Put it this Way” set a record as the longest continuously published feature in the Saturday Evening Post.

He was an accomplished “paragrapher” - a writer who condenses humorous or thought provoking ideas into paragraph form. His quips and quotes were published (often anonymously) in numerous publications, including Reader’s Digest, the Wall Street Journal, Changing Times and Quote magazine.
