Anthony Bourdain has always come off as a smug jerkoff to me with his holier than thou face and condescending “culinary bad boy” tone. I’ve never really liked the guy’s persona. He seems like a guy who would spit on a homeless person. But then I learned that at one point he was a two pack a day smoker, a ravenous drinker, and a former friend of cocaine, heroin, and LSD. He once even said that rarely was a culinary decision made that wasn’t fueled by drugs. And then I began to see myself in him. Really brought him down to earth for me.

Today he was asked by a TMZ reporter what he’d suggest the Cubs fans and players struggling with a championship hangover eat to nurse themselves back to health. His response, and I can attest, may be the best cure short of an IV:

  • Aspirin
  • Cold Coca Cola
  • Joint
  • Spicy Szechuan food

This could also ring true for Cleveland Indians fans who may need it more, seeing as they aren’t riding a World Series high. It could also work for me tomorrow morning after I get blind drunk tonight.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
