Early Drafts

The phrase "revenge is a dish best served cold," went through a surprising amount of revision before it arrived in the English vernacular today. Early forms of the phrased included:
  • Revenge is a dish best served medium-rare.
  • Revenge is a dish best served with a side of fries.
  • Revenge is a dish.
  • Revenge is a dish best served deep fried.
  • Revenge is a dish best served in an Italian restaurant.
  • Revenge is a dish best served at high velocity.
  • Revenge is a dish best self-served (unless you live in New Jersey).
