Muppets Laugh it up on Top Chef

By Anthony Todd in Food on Feb 17, 2011 4:20PM

Anyone who didn't watch Top Chef last night should watch this video immediately. Anyone who did? Re-live the memories. The Top Chef gang was joined by some of the Muppets from Sesame Street, who judged a cookie making challenge. Cookie Monster (who spent much of his time trying to eat the tablecloth), Elmo and Telly joked, snarked and eventually judged. The contestants look like they can't decide whether to be thrilled to meet childhood heroes or appalled that their cuisine is being judged by hand puppets. As one of our tweeps remarked, after about ten seconds, we might've put Elmo under the salamander. We kid!

This video also confirms that Muppets are our drug of choice. We grew up laughing at the Swedish Chef, so if you have anything that combines Muppets and food, we'll probably post it.
