Among the numerous reasons we’re grateful to cover the food world is that it often makes us oblivious to what’s going on in the rest of the world, or at least the part that has tiger blood and cocaine running through its veins.
But alas, we can no longer escape the gaunt, raving specter of Charlie Sheen, because he’s infiltrated our universe with a cooking show. Well, sort of: Called “Charlie Sheen’s Winning Recipes,” it’s a skit for Funny or Die, and it is in fact very, very funny. “Food Network, here I come!” says our intrepid hero, sucking on the first of numerous cigarettes. And while there are many reasons we happily anticipate the day when winning finally starts losing the media’s attention, we will remain grateful to Sheen for his additions to the utensil lexicon: “This is not a spatula. It is a cooking wand for a warlock.” Noted.
