Not worth eating unless 50% chance of diarrhea: Bourdain does Daily Show
Posted: April 9th, 2012 - 5:12pm
Witticisms like that have endeared fans of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, but barf and diarrhea is no fun, especially for kids.
Bourdain’s good with a quip, as he showed last night on The Daily Show, but still comes across like Hunter S. Thompson-lite.
Eater reports that Bourdain, whose job is "what people would do if they didn't have to work," stopped by The Daily Show to talk about the upcoming season of No Reservations, premiering Monday.
Jon Stewart comments on the less-than-hygienic places Bourdain travels on the show — "I have gotten diarrhea from watching" — to which Bourdain replies, "If there's not at least a 50% chance of diarrhea when you eat something, it's almost not worth eating." Also, Bourdain says the worst food comes not from the poorest countries (that's some of the best), but places where people just aren't interested in food. Not liking food? Yeah, that's like saying "I'm not interested in music, and you know, I'm not particularly interested in sex either."
Food can be adventurous and safe. So can sex.
