Gordon Ramsay is a man of many titles. Michelin-starred chef. TV Host. King of mean. Subject of memes.
It was inevitable that such a colorful character be turned into a clip joke eventually—and repeatedly He makes cooking comments crueler than “yo mama” jabs (though they do have a similar sentence structure).

But those rare times this Grinch does smile, it’s pretty touching…if slightly terrifying.
