Assistant Quote of the Day
"Does the phrase 'Minute to Win It' refer to the process of procuring Donkey Sauce from an aroused donkey?"
-- "Ruth Bourdain," the infamous anonymous blogger whose name is supposedly a combination of Ruth Reichl and Anthony Bourdain, piling on Guy Fieri and asking a question she believes was left out of the scathing New York Times review of his Times Square restaurant
Everyone knows I'd enjoy seeing Fieri die in a grease fire, so I haven't even bothered bringing up the whole rigmarole surrounding the Times review (which is brilliant, by the way). But "Ruth Bourdain's" list of questions is easily the best comment I've seen yet on the review, Fieri's butt-hurt response to it, and the media and food critic feeding frenzy that's resulted.
