Chillin' and Grillin'

If there was ever a prime example of a “celebrity” being a flatulent butthead, look no further than the Food Network’s Bobby Flay, who demonstrated Saturday how not to act once you’ve gone from the kitchen to prime-time television.

Flay pulled up to the racecourse in his oversized Dodge Ram with a camera crew in tow to challenge the chef-owner of Hattie’s Chicken Shack to a spontaneous fried poultry cook-off at the Saratoga Racecourse Friday. It was a sort of impromptu promotional venture for his new Food Network show, Throw Down with Bobby Flay.

In typical arrogant fashion, Flay hammered his mega-truck into an entrance of the track ordinarily off-limits to even foot-traffic, much less a vehicle the size of a Peterbuilt. Then, to top it off, he promptly blocked an ambulance in with his truck amid protests of the chagrinned EMTs and track workers.

But because he’s the almighty and powerful Bobby Flay, also know by his proper name, "total dick," everything was copasetic. Don’t worry about that heart attack setting in, because America’s celebrity chef will swing you a fried chicken leg.

And for those who don't think Flay is a talent-less hack who couldn't cook his way out of the corner McDonald's, he lost the lost the chicken fry-off.
