The funniest prog I watched over here was the plump middle aged blond lady with the southern drawl in Paris.
She visited a market with a chicken rotisserie stall, she tasted the product and went into raptures, she then asked the owner in a form of fronglaise with gestures and loudness why the the chicken was so tasty. He replied in french that they only use the famous french chicken the poulet Bresse, she thought he was referring to her Breasts and asked him yawl like my breasts and gripped them and jiggled them about, he look slightly perplexed and made quite a funny comment that I can't share.

I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.

Had to have been Paula Deen and, yes, she can be quite bawdy. We're pretty much over her shows too.

Have you noticed that a lot of them seem to deteriorate after they've been stars for awhile?

Except Bobby Flay. I couldn't stand him or his food (too spicy) for a long time, but I've found myself watching and liking him and his food after he started the Throwdown series.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I haven't watched Food Network in ages. I only would watch at night and its all competition shows at night these days. I actually like the food shows on Travel Channel better and I also discovered the Cooking Channel, it seems like all the Food Network shows went over to that channel, wonder if its owned by Food Network.

The Cooking Channel is owned by Food Network. they created to have a place for their cooking shows. The FN has become a food entertainment network.

Food Network last time I actually watched it had changed. Everything from preparing a dinner to the personalities of the Stars seemed like a Bum's rush.

I like the 3 D's. Guy is nice. Now that he has Minute to win it. What's next?

I'm picturing PEZ Dispensers as the next big thing.
Anyone else picture Paula on one? Guy and that wild hair of his?

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.
