Rural drudges, no class, slovenly, aversive to hard work, dim as a used up bulb. The Kettles were originally a family portrayed in American comic films in the 1940s and '50s (the first was "The Egg And I", portraying life on a chicken / egg farm, the last "The Kettles on Old Macdonald's Farm".) In the first movie, the slow-thinking and lazy Pa and Ma Kettle, with their fifteen children, win a tobacco slogan writing contest and get a modern house with electronic gadgetry they can not fathom. Today, the term is occasionally used to describe an uncouth dufus, a rude lout, someone who completely ignores politeness and common knowledge, someone who might act like an unschooled, ignorant rural clod.
These kettles boarded the plane and proceeded to place their infant in the overhead baggage bin, as he spit tobacco juice on the aisle carpet.

Derived from the (Y) sign used on instant messaging, as this looks slightly like a vagina. So, when you thumbs up someone, you're calling them a cunt. Taking this further, when a fireman thumbs up you, he's calling you a cunt. Kettles were originally heated by fire, which is put out by firemen, so Kettle became slang for cunt.
she had a right bucket of a kettle!

A collection of porn in any form. As you would say a "flock" of sheep you say a "kettle" of porn. However kettle can be used on its own with the same effect.
