    The forks have been bent out of their original shape. Through use or misuse, they have become misshapen.
    Note: 'Bent out of shape' is also used figuratively to mean upset, angry. 'When nobody would lend him the money, he got all bent out of shape and left in a bad mood.'



    2)I'll be watching you, Craig.
    Nice cover.
    from Restaurant Startup Guide copyright Ravi Wazir:
    Cover / Covers: Refers to (a) the table setting laid out for a single guest or (b) the number of guests that can be seated in the restaurant.

    here i haven't understand nice cover
    3)My abs are way more
    ripped than that guy's.
    here i haven't understand way more ripped
    'Ripped' in this context means in excellent physical shape.

    4)Don't you realize you
    could get killed?!
    ?
    5)we can climb up on their roof and
    drop a wasp nest down their chimney.
    I have one ready.
    I've been teasing the for
    months to keep them angry.

    I have been, and continue to, tease it. I have not stopped this action which began sometime in the past.
    thank you all
    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
