Yesterday we questioned the proliferation of celebrity-owned chicken restaurants, with the opening of Flavor Flav's first Flav's Fried Chicken in Clinton, Iowa. But Flav's foray into food service left us with a second question: do you really want to eat food made by this guy?
Sure, we all make mistakes. Plenty of non-famous folks have made out with a pack of faux nurses and then returned to frying chicken for paying customers with no one the wiser.
But with celebrities, we see their every move. Every mistake. Every questionable decision. And sometimes, we can't help but connect the artist with the food's flavor. It's not always a shining endorsement.
Kid Rock's Badass American Lager Sure, it's from a craft brewery in Kid's homestate of Michigan. That's good. Can you shake the thought that it tastes like Pam Anderson residue and nylon pant sweat left over from Woodstock '99 with aromas of stale cigars and Detroit Coney dog belches?
Ron de Jeremy Rum In light of the large variety of fluids porn star Jeremy could contribute to his new signature Panamanian rum, that American Badass seems downright tasty. At least it probably won't have hair floating in it. Besides, we established earlier this month that Jeremy's not the most hygienic food service professional.
Please don't make us post that video again.
