A Food Flippin' Mario?

A Mario Batali action figure? Apparently so. Does he come with Crocs, Coaster?

This is a great idea! I think this could expand to bloggers, as well, all of us with our own action figures. Why the hell not?

I notice they didn't mention Rachel Ray...no action figure for her, she's already a bobble head.

Chelene,

Oooh, "pizza-tossing action!" Or is that "paying out alimony action?"

Bubs,

They have a company that will do that for something ridiculous like $10,000. If there is enough of us, though, mabye we could get the cost down.

"I notice they didn't mention Rachel Ray...no action figure for her, she's already a bobble head."

The quote of the week, sir!

Mario Batali action figure? Gross.

I imagine the Rachael Ray action figure would like come equipped with a miniature cocaine bindle.

ITSW,

"I imagine the Rachael Ray action figure would like come equipped with a miniature cocaine bindle."

Hey, Rachael gets naturally perky, the old school way...downing diet pills like they were M&M's.

Todd,

Heh-heh-heh...

How about an inaction figure for lazy bloggers?

Dale,

Technically, aren't "action figures," really inactive?

Part of me would rather Rachael challenge someone to a vicodin eating contest in under thirty minutes. There's bound to be a housewife who loves her talk show enough to enter into that contest.

ITSW,

Now, see, you, Bubs, and Todd have me all mixed up as to which is my favorite quote. I'll have you three pick numbers.

You looking for a bitch slap there Procrast?

As for all you Rachael haters, search my blog for Rachael Ray and you'll see that she's my muse.

Coaster,

Thanks for linking the Rachael-thrashing site, it cracked me up. Seriously, as The Missus just pointed out, me getting upset at Rachael, is just like me getting upset about the lack of plot for the second live-action Scooby Doo movie.

Um, if I may?

A) Even you allowed that she encourages people to serve moldy vegetables and herbs.

B) The concept of "Thirty-Minute Meals" is absurd, unless you are going to stick to "sammies," Italian and Chinese fare. Most of the pork and beef dishes that she cooks, are entirely too rare.

C) She takes perfectly good meals and ruins them. She adds a clashing ingredient or flavor it seems, just to be different or to pretty the dish up. The taste of food, above all, is paramount. She is not the only Food Network personality that does this, Alton Brown throws mustard on perfectly good dishes for no reason at all, other than his apparent fetish for the stuff.

D) I have no problem with the talk show incarnation of Rachael Ray or the "$40 A Day," Rachael Ray, though The Missus and I still bag on her Upstate New York accent and perkiness and/or drunkiness. The "30-Minute" Rachael Ray should be moved out of the dinner slot, for a more deserving show.

E) Coaster, "yummo?" I'll allow "delish," but "yummo?" Did Julia Child or for that manner, any television chef have to sell their food with eye rolls and phrases like "yummo?"

F) "Stoup." Thinner than a stew, thicker than a soup!

I'd rather gargle rusty nails.

ITSW,

How the hell could I have forgotten "stoup?!!!" Though, that expression still cracks me up if I'm not in a bad mood.
