A Food-related "Seperated At Birth?"

We were watching Rachael Ray do her take on Spanish cuisine tonight (isn't brick-pressed chicken, Italian???) and the Missus said, "you know who she sounds like, right?"

Me: No.
The Missus: She sounds just like Rocky.
Me: Wha? (in worst Rocky imitation ever) "Yo, Adrian, how's about some tapas?"
The Missus: No, Rocky, the Squirrel.
Me: Yeah?
The Missus: She looks like her, too.

And I doubt that Rachel would ever put the goggles on, but the Missus kind of has a point.

The difference: I could watch several hours of "Bullwinkle" cartoons, no problem. I couldn't get through more than one minute of that Rachael Ray show.

I could watch "Bullwinkle" for days too.

I like her cooking show okay, though I can hardly watch her talk show. It's a shame (and I'll have to wait for it to be posted on You Tube,) but one of these days on the talk show, her heart is going to explode from all the "perkiness" and "enthusiasm."

And Oprah will be there to help her pick up the pieces and make something new out of it.

Dale,

"And Oprah will be there to help her pick up the pieces and make something new out of it."

Ah yes, great point! All the King's horse's and all the King's men, they don't stand a chance. But, Oprah?...

Katie,

Thanks and you didn't hear the half of it, only the part that was fit to blog.

Is there stuff that's not fit to blog? Guess I don't have that kind of internal editor.

But now you've ruined, ruined Rachel Ray for me. Actually, I've never been a big fan. It's Giada DeLaurentiis for me.

Are you aware that college kids have a Rachgel Ray drinking game? (I'm not making this up.) Every time she says "YUM" it's down the hatch!

Eric,

"Is there stuff that's not fit to blog? Guess I don't have that kind of internal editor."

I have several external editors:

1) The Missus
2) Her frying pan
3) Nonsensical law suits are already a staple at my work place.
4) What seemed to me at the time, to be an innoccuous comment, has offended a friend to the point that she hasn't spoke to me for months.

"But now you've ruined, ruined Rachel Ray for me."

Only for the moment, man. She'll grow back on you, she's too perky not to.

"Actually, I've never been a big fan. It's Giada DeLaurentiis for me."

I like them both, but to be honest, I'm a Biba fan, because it's more about the food to me. We watch Rachael, pretty much because it's the only appropriate show while we're eating. If I want eye candy and food, Nigella gets my broiler going.

"Are you aware that college kids have a Rachgel Ray drinking game? (I'm not making this up.) Every time she says "YUM" it's down the hatch!"

I thought I read something like that! I would've thought "e-v-oh-oh," but sometimes that's only worth two shots. Do a shot every time she rolls her eyes and you'd pass out.
