Anthony Bourdain Has No Reservations About Cannibalism
If you know anything about Anthony Bourdain, you know that he is infamous for his outspoken viewpoints on food, other celebrity chefs, and life in general. So it should probably come as no surprise that Anthony publicly admitted he would eat human flesh if he had to — but we’ll get back to that in a moment.
Over this past weekend, Bourdain was a featured guest at Brooklyn’s Great GoogaMooga Festival, where he shared his opinions with a large food-loving crowd regarding a variety of topics. Here is a brief highlight reel:
How does Anthony feel about the quality of pasta made by the Olive Garden? Well, he mentioned he would use a “big f*cking can of gasoline” to burn the restaurant down. Personally, I am a fan of the bread sticks, but let’s move on.
What does Anthony think about the James Beard House? “Why don’t they turn the house into something useful like a methadone clinic?,” he stated. That would be one clinic with a mighty fine meal plan.
What are Anthony’s thoughts on the recent foie gras ban? “I would f*cking eat it [foie gras] for the rest of my life out of sheer spite,” he proclaimed. I like his spunky determination.
Other topics of conversation included who he would most want to deep-fry and eat (Dick Cheney), more Paula Deen fodder (something involving icing, Robert Irvine, and an animal rectum), and how to best cook a unicorn (roast, grill, AND braise, of course).
So how did we start talking about cannibalism then? Well, when an audience member had the opportunity to propose a question to Bourdain, naturally he wanted to know if he and Bourdain were ever trapped in a cave, would Bourdain wind up eating him? Would Anthony ever eat a human?
The answer — a resounding “”Yes, yes, I f*cking would.”
So now I would like to propose a question, Mr. Bourdain. If you were ever trapped in a cave with Paula Deen, would you eat her too?
Just some food for thought.
Here’s a video of Anthony speaking at the event. Warning- there is some questionable language, so I don’t recommend having your office speakers turned to Megadeth level.
