-->-- ''Lost in Alaska''

Every time someone [[YouJustHADToSayIt refers to the expression]] "everything but the kitchen sink" in any way, shape or fashion, an [[LiteralMetaphor actual, literal kitchen sink]] will inevitably appear. This trope is almost always PlayedForLaughs, especially in cartoons.

The original expression is an idiom of unknown origin but originating in the early 20th century, meaning "everything that wasn't bolted down". Kitchen sinks are not only bolted down, but connected to the plumbing.

Nothing to do with a FantasyKitchenSink or a SciFiKitchenSink, unless you somehow manage to incorporate them into the mythology as well. [[AndThatsTerrible And that would just be silly]]. Also unrelated to the underground comix publisher Kitchen Sink Press (who probably rather wants to allude to "filth" than to this trope).

"Now we've seen the kitchen sink," chuckled Grimace. (The whole commercial had been a HurricaneOfPuns.)
