    Default Corner of hell

    When you see/hear this, what's the picture in your mind?
    What do they mean when they say "There may/should be a special corner of hell for..." (say, attorneys )?

    Default Re: Corner of hell

    "corner of hell" is pretty much only used in this expression. It means that whoever the phrase is referring to (like lawyers) are so bad that they don't just go to the general area of hell that other bad people go to; they have an especially bad area of hell that was created just for them.
