“What line of work should you recommend to an alcoholic, scruffy bum with an attitude?” (joke)

Celebrity chefs often have a reputation for being very unpleasant in the kitchen. “What line of work should you recommend to an alcoholic, scruffy bum with an attitude? Well, a celebrity chef might be a good start” is a joke that was cited in print in 2014, but is surely older.

Chef Daniel knows best
An old joke goes, “What line of work should you recommend to an alcoholic, scruffy bum with an attitude? Well, a celebrity chef might be a good start”. Yet for all the boozy, bossy, “creative” individuals in the kitchen there are always genuine chefs who don’t do battle with the bottle and who keep their snarling to themselves.
