Not many people associate kitchen work with murder unless you’re
talking about the iconic “murder with kitchen knife” image made famous by the
classic Hollywood horror flicks. And we have to admit that there are days when
we are so stressed from a hard day at work that we go about chopping vegetables
like they were the embodiment of our bosses and co-workers. However, if you
have been having seriously murderous thoughts of late and do not want those fantasies
to take over you, you would need something to snap you out of it and put some
humor back into your life.
The Splash Red Chopping Board created by cookware manufacturer
Mustard is one such kitchen item that lightens up your mood every time you look
at it. Its name and appearance instantly evokes the image of splattered blood (or
tomato sauce, depending on frame of mind you are in when you look at it) which
could make you smile even when you find yourself slaving over the stove trying
to prepare a lovely dinner for your thankless family after having put in a 12
our shift at the office.
The only apparent downside to the humorously designed
chopping board is that it only looks like a blood splatter when draped over an
edge which could be a bit of a challenge if you have a kitchen that is slightly
cramped for counter space. But you can always remove the vertical bit though it
isn’t so much without it. The chopping board itself costs around £16.99 which
would be something close to $27 across the pond sans shipping. The board is
currently only available on pre-order though its makers assure that it would
begin shipping it sometime in September.
