Gordon Ramsay gets a taste of his own medicine

I don’t have any harsh feelings toward Gordon Ramsay, but yeah, sometimes he can be seem like a dick. Though this clip of him is from years ago, it’s recently resurfaced on Twitter and people are really enjoying watching Ramsay get slammed for cooking a mediocre pad Thai. [Kate Bernot]


Pacific Rim: Uprising

A child of the ’70s, I grew up loving disaster movies (like Poseidon Adventure) and giant monster movies (like Mothra Vs. Godzilla). So I’m still a fan of dumb popcorn movies that offer almost nothing but mass destruction. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many things smashed to smithereens as in Pacific Rim: Uprising, which I went to see with my son this week. Yes, the plot was paper-thin and the “Jaegers” just look like giant Rock’em Sock’em robots to me—I still enjoyed seeing them fight giant space monsters while knocking down more than a few buildings/cars/icebergs. And the movie gets bonus points for including Charlie Day as a savvy scientist. Now my boy and I are counting down the days until Rampage opens. [Gwen Ihnat]

Jeff Goldblum voices the “Steamed Hams” scene from The Simpsons

Ahh, delightful. If this isn’t enough Steamed Hams for you, may we suggest this mash-up with Gorillaz’s “Feel Good Inc.” [Kevin Pang]

I worked at Williams-Sonoma in New York years ago, and Gordon Ramsey was always a jovial, soft-spoken guy when he came in. It appears that he plays an asshole on TV...and very likely at his own restaurants. But never at Williams-Sonoma. (Please don’t shop there, by the way.)
