Illustrated Clichè #3: Too many cooks spoil the broth

October 17, 2013

Not a very famous line, but I have heard it a bunch of times. I think it's supposed to mean that when unnecessary number of people work together, it causes chaos. True for some scenarios, but if I were to take the line literally, I'd definitely disagree. I could use as many cooks as possible helping me out when I try my hand at the kitchen stuff. It's reassuring that I actually do have a bandwagon of cooks at my disposal when I need their help. And they're collectively called Google. Thanks to Google, I made tomato soup from scratch for my sister last week. I'm very grateful for all the help.

You can check out all the illustrated clichès I've made till now here.

  1. I thought of a really great idea for all your illustrated cliches - you should make a book out of them - a kid's book. These cliches would be great to learn from, especially since kids don't necessarily know the meaning behind them, just the literal meanings.

  2. That's an awesome idea! I'm totally going to try to do that! :D

  3. I hope you do not mind if I use your image in a post I have to do for a class I am taking at Walden University. I will give you full credit to the image and a link back. It will only be on our class discussion board for about 5-6 more weeks then I am not sure where it goes after the class is complete.

    Thanks in advance.

  4. Go ahead, Rocque! Please send me a link to where it is used...
