Kinda thinking Lauren Hirschberg is a woman....

Googled Lauren Hischberg - that's the fullest beard I've ever seen on a woman!!! So Tom is still in the zero category.

(as an aside - listening to the news and they mentioned Denney's has a bacon maple sundae on the menu now.)

Froggy is correct, Lauren is a dude.

Good to see that Denny's is celebrating Mapril right along with us.

You know what, if you put a gun to my back and said Choose between the two, with the cold hard steel at my spine I'd have to go with Mike. He's cooking with passion and desire. Blais is still cooking not to lose. Each time he's not pronounced the winner of a Quickfire or Elim, the further in doubt he gets about every single thing he does. It's a sick sick thing.

Either way it goes I think Top Chef and Bravo/NBC have missed the boat. I wonder what judging would be overall - not just the meal before you. Maybe chefs can get away with it more but who wants to work for some of these folks? Picture Carla as a representative of the food industry and Top Chef. She's been to the White House for gawd's sake. Put her in the White House garden and kids will be clamoring to eat vegetables because she makes it so darn much fun. This is a Top Chef. They wouldn't let RichardB thru the frontdoor as he's so scruffy and MikeI would get tossed out the door with his first fart joke.

I don't know, Froggy, Batali made it in with his orange crocs.

froggy said...

Orange crocs, they're like, classic!

Big Shamu said...

Yes, Jackie always wore her crocs with that little matching pillbox number.
