Warning: Contains butts


On the kitchen counter.



That can't be sanitary.





Also contains at least one sequined sweater and white wine drunkenness.

So, the men help with the cooking then? They aren't actually on the menu?

Actually cooking near naked men would have definitely kicked it up a notch.

Not unless you want to help toss the salad.

Lose smutty Ms. Eighties Double-Entendre and let the dudes do the cooking without her. The video would be much improved without the chick in the middle, imho.

(Similar to the way I feel about most Lady Gaga videos, for that matter.)

Normally, the thought of being savaged by a group of men on a kitchen counter would send me off to a magical place.

Thanks Whelkykins for ruining that fantasy. Alternatively, thank you for ensuring I will never get butt hair into my food again.

That would be Jaye P. Morgan, who apparently had a singing career in the 50s.

So, it's basically the how-to guide for the first character in The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover?

*watches clip*

Oh, there's no actual cooking of the men, who are indeed near naked.

Protip: never fry bacon naked.

Oops. I missed the FPP title. Now I feel like a fool.

Ah! Thought she looked familiar.

Did anyone else get a Lucille Austero from Arrested Development vibe from her?

Also, I enjoyed this completely er, straight, cause I have a favorite barrtender who is an ex-showgirl who has the exact same campy music hall manner and is a delight.

It's possibly to sharpen knives naked with nothing untoward happening, but you will probably be really nervous throughout.

Well. It's. Yup. Hmmm...

maudlin: "On the Muppets Show."

Wait... did she just acknowledge that she's a on a "puppet show"? I thought that was a no-no.

Alas for the demise of Party Down. I can see Jane Lynch's character doing a send-up of this that'd probably be better than the original.

I was wondering why they'd be near naked, until I realized there'd be dressing involved.

FPP is a disappointment.

Amanda can't tell whether the lady's enjoying it.

I think she doesn't know enough pervy ladies.

Cooking with naked men sounds like a really bad idea. "Today we'll be frying up some OW OH GOD JESUS SHIT MY WANG!"

OH GOD JESUS SHIT MY WANG is a delicacy in many countries.

Aunt Peg would have been the perfect person to have done a no-cutting-away-at-strategic-moments porn version of this.

they have their naked butts on the counter and feathered mullet hair; but her taking the dirty old woman thing to a whole'nother is just wow :D

So, this is a cheesy 80s VHS beefcake show. If the genders were reversed, most of the posts so far would have been diffident, at least, about the rampant sexism and objectivism of women, but of course, when roles are reversed, claims of prejudice are always greatly reduced.

Meh.
posted by IAmBroom at 2:12 PM on June 27, 2011


I was so hoping someone would use the ol' "if the genders were reversed" canard. Because it's hilarious when people make a sex argument that requires both genders to have total equality already to be true. Wait, did I say hilarious? Annoying, that's what I meant.

I was so hoping someone would use the ol' "I was so hoping someone would use the ol' "if the genders were reversed" canard" canard.

It allows you to simultaneously avoid admitting to the vulgarity and reciprocal sexism of this show, and yet appear morally superior to anyone who finds role reversal annoying.

Shit, did I just create an infinite loop?
