The Worldnutdaily is clutching their pearls over “audible obscenities” in Anthony Bourdain’s new CNN show Parts Unknown (which is pretty much identical to his old show, No Reservations, on the Travel Channel). ZOMG! He said bad words!
A primetime CNN host is giving new meaning to fowl language after jokingly calling himself “The Enormous C–k” on the air.
On Sunday’s edition of “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” the host was in a gaming facility in Bogota, Colombia.
One of his opponents was introduced to him as “El Pollo Viejo” which means “The Old Chicken.”
The host then addressed the camera with a pensive look and said, “I need a poultry name. He’s calling himself ‘The Old Chicken.’ I shall be ‘The Enormous C–k.’”
This is not the first time Bourdain has ruffled viewers’ feathers with colorful language on his show.
Well, no. The only ruffled feathers are yours. His viewers, the people who actually like and watch his show, were almost certainly not bothered in the least. That’s part of Bourdain’s appeal for them. Maybe you just shouldn’t watch the show. Imagine being a reporter and being asked to do a story about a few “bad” words on a TV show. It’s not journalism, it’s the Worldnutdaily.
