Default Re: This is priceless episode II

I used to hear about a Cobb Job from the Scottish furniture refinisher I learned from and one day I asked him if he knew where that saying came from.

He asked if I had ever seen a dry corn cob after it had been shelled. Yep. Well this job is so poorly done it's as rough as a dry corn cob.

When I was learning to become a cook, the cooks were mostly eastern European and if you messed up you were called a shoe maker. About as bad as it got for them.
