In what may be the best cooking show parody of our time, a fake chef made the rounds on five Midwestern morning shows over the holidays to demo downright gross/ridiculous food. Mashed potatoes in ice cream cones topped with corn and a cranberry "cherry." A smoothie made with everything from gravy to pumpkin pie. Fried chicken topped with mashed potatoes and cranberries for a take on ants on a log. And the hapless hosts gamely played along.
