She Who Must Be Obeyed and I have decided, after watching the first three episodes of Gordon Ramsay's hilarious FOX reality show Hell's Kitchen, that the name "Dewberry," sported by the show's requisite obese, probably mentally deficient contestant*, should be turned into a general term of derision. For instance:

  • "Sorry it took me so long to buy milk, dear; there was a real Dewberry in front of me in line at the store."
  • "Police suspect a neighborhood Dewberry is responsible for the rash of garden hose violations."
  • "Exit polls show that the president's re-election can be attributed to a high turnout among Dewberrys."

You know, that sort of thing. Feel free to leave additional uses of the term "Dewberry" in the comments.

*This phrasing, or something very close to it, is shamelessly stolen from someone or other on Best Week Ever.

(Incidentally, how on earth does Gordon Ramsay have the time to be the greatest chef in England? He's doing this series, and BBC America has run, I think, three Ramsay series and counting, and even if his books are all ghostwritten, when the hell does he have time to run multiple restaurants?)
