two random things; a beautiful man-chef and a chicken joke

Oh...which first?

I have angst.

OK, first the link to the beautiful man-chef I accidentally came across. I assume he's a chef. The blog's not in english. So go here. But COME BACK FOR THE JOKE!
Nevermind. I wouldn't come back. I'd spend the next seven years learning Italian and never return to the foodgeek site ever ever again.
Now, many of you who know me may be saying....
Rachel, you are in a relationship with a man who looks like Lance Armstrong from the neck up and Brad Pitt from the neck down. And he's freaking hilarious! What the hell are you doing with Gusto? He's probably not even funny.
Please be assured that I have considered this fact carefully, and as a result, have decided to give Gusto to my friend, Molly. Happy Birthday Molly. If we actually lived in the imaginary-strangeness of my twisted mind, Gusto would be yours. With a bow tied around his beautiful Italian neck.
And NO, I didn't just put that in to save my own ass in case Flynn ever decides to cruise my blog.

OK, for those of you who are still here. (gay women and straight men only, I presume)
Here's the joke:

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

A: BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a change! The chicken wanted change!
JOHN MC CAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialog with all the chickens on the other side of the road.
HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right from Day One that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.
DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?
COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road. B
ILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken. What is your definition of crossing? AL GORE: I invented the chicken.
JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.
AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens.
DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before adding new problems.
: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmers Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.
DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.
ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone. J
ERRY FALWELL: Because the chicken was gay! Can't you people see the plain truth? That's why they call it the other side. Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay, too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like the other side. That chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain and as simple as that.
GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.
BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.
ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.
BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2008. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot. ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?


  1. Hi Rachel,

    I'm Wally, good friend of Gusto! :-)

    I'm here just to let you know that at this link
    you can find another blog of Gusto ;-)
    Oh, his name is Dario... but 'Gusto' is funny enough! :-D

  2. Hi Rachel,
    I personally know GUSTO,and you're right, he's not funny and he looks like a beautiful man only in pictures..
    And he also has a bad smell and he spits when he speaks..
    So if Molly is really your friend,don't give GUSTO to her..

  3. Dear Rachel,
    I'm the girlfriend of GUSTO, alias "macho-man",and I'm very happy to know that you like him so much..
    But if it's true that your boyfriend looks like Lance Armstrong from the neck up, and Brad Pitt from the neck down, why don't we make a change??
    To more details visit my blog

    Kisses and hugs

  4. Lord, I do love the internet.
    Aren't people great?
    Thanks for the input, friends and aquaintances of Gusto/Dario. You made my day of trudging around town getting groceries and feeling pissy about the end of summer SO MUCH BETTER!

  5. Rach... You are right, he is hot. And the food pics, Amazing!!

    Anyhow, I just wanted to point out that you unwittingly confirmed my 8=reality-everything-is-connected trip with the inclusion of the Colonel in your blog. Sex, Religion, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Ha!


be nice...
