Bob's Burgers Premieres; Serves Up Human Flesh, 'Child Molester Burger'
Bob's Burgers, a new gross-out cartoon for adults set in a family-owned burger joint, premiered on Fox last night. The plot involved a rumor that the patties were made of people from the crematorium next to the restaurant and a vengeful health inspector. It's an obvious premise for a food-obsessed world and surely not the last epicurean-themed entertainment we're likely to see on non-cooking-channel TV.
