Too Many Chefs and Not Enough Indians

Too Many Chefs and Not Enough Indians :

Tongue In Cheek :

If something is tongue in cheek, it is not serious or meant to be taken seriously.

To Not Account :


  • We regret to say that we cannot take the delivery of goods because these are of no account to us now.

    Too Big For Your Boots :

    If someone is too big for their boots, they are conceited and have an exaggerated sense of their own importance.

    Too Big For Your Britches :

    If someone is too big for their britches, they are conceited and have an exaggerated sense of their own importance.

    Too Many Chefs and Not Enough Indians :

    When there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians, there are too many managers and not enough workers.

    Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth. :

    This means that where there are too many people trying to do something, they make a mess of it.

    Too Many Irons in The Fire :

    This means juggling too many projects at once and something’s bound to fail

  • When a smith had too many irons in his fire, he could not effectively keep track of all of them.

    To Open Fire :

    To start firing the gun

  • When the mob became unruly, the police opened fire and dispersed the crowd.

    To Pay The Piper :

    To bear the cost

  • One who pays the piper is justified in calling the tune.

    To Play One’s Cards Well :

    Point blank frankly, unreservedly to discharge one’s duty well

  • Success or no successes, try to play your cards well.

    To Play The Ape :

    To imitate

    To copy

    It does not behave an Indian to play the ape to white Europeans without caring for his means.

    To Put All Eggs Into One Basket :

    To risk all on one enterprise

  • I have several accounts for I know it is unwise to put all eggs into one basket.
