Little Gordon

Here in the UK we’ve been somewhat immunised against swearing celebrity chefs, ever since Gordon Ramsay hit our TV screens with shows like The F Word. He’s everywhere: on terrestrial TV, on Sky, on our bookshelves, taking over our pubs (see my Warrington Pub poem here), building a transatlantic restaurant empire and teaching his kids how best to raise turkeys in their back garden. I don’t think the man gets much sleep.

Just when I thought I’d seen it all, I came across a viral marketing company’s website – Rebel Virals. They did The Facebook Anthem, which circulated last year (you can find it on their site). But more relevant to this post is their Little Gordon series. Whether or not you’re a Ramsay fan, you’re going to LOVE these clips. Very funny.

Here’s Little Gordon assessing an ailing restaurant.

***Warning: if profane children affect your heart rate, it’s probably best to avoid these clips.

    Having fits of f***ing giggles at this end.
    In case you’re being serious, it’s a spoof on Big Gordon Ramsay, who swears A LOT. Big GR does a show where he goes into struggling restaurants, analyses what their problem is and kickes their ass into shape. Little GR is essentially doing just that. He looks just like the Big version, too and swears like a trooper. Funny.

    Oh, my funny bone. Maybe I didn’t serve it fast enough for Little Gordon.
    This was just too funny.
    You think this little guy knows when to turn on the acting and when to be a little guy?

    He even had his mannerisms and hand gestures…..

    The ” F ” word seems to not raise an eyebrow anymore.

    The whole thing reminds me of when I was at a restaurant in Houston Texas.

    After waiting for over an hour in an empty restaurant I complained (in a very calm and polite manner, by the way) to the manger and her response was to call the police. We herd sirens within about 30 seconds of the phone call and since two of us had just spent the night in jail for being in a truck only one headlight working, we legged it out of there quick smart.

    Ramsey was interviewed here in Oz by Andrew Denton and he seemed to be high on coke and motor-mouthed way too much about his shagging history. I was disappointed as I quite like the guy and his recipes.

  6. Razz you hippie! Of course they called the cops! Your hair was long. Your liberal types are not welcome in our town. You were lucky not to have ended up in tar and feathers!

    Perhaps you need Aussie fucking subtitles.

    Bonnie, nowadays, with Botox, no one is ABLE to raise an eyebrow anymore.

    Bonnie – I know what you mean about the lack of currency of that particular swear word these days! I just wonder, like you, whether this kid went home and proceeded to swear in the company of his parents! Poor them…
    Raz – what? the police were called on you for complaining about lack of service? I’d say that waitress was married to a cop or something. Don’t blame you for making a hasty exit. As for the Gordon interview – when was that? He seems like such a family man these days. Perhaps it was before he had a brood of Mini Ramsays and a backyard filled with turkeys.

  8. Sorry epic, I let my impetuous self chimed in when not appropriate.

    To redeem myself, here is our US scandalous video with little child swearing, a video made by Will Ferrell with his two year old daughter:

    That Ramsey interview I was talking about was only a couple of weeks ago.

    Well tough, Razz. The blogosphere wouldn’t be the same without you, so don’t let a few Texans wind you up. Besides, Nat’s not entirely Texan herself.

    Interesting re the interview. Someone must have fallen off a good ol’ Aussie wagon somewhere near a TV studio. I hope I can find the interview on You Tube.

    I couldn’t find any video clips but here’s a transcript of some of the sections of the interview I was talking about.

    ANDREW DENTON: And you basically started having an affair with the pub’s pub owner’s wife right.

    GORDON RAMSAY: Hold on a minute.

    Laughter

    ANDREW DENTON: You’ve written about it.

    GORDON RAMSAY: Yeah I did.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: But let’s put this into text okay.

    ANDREW DENTON: Yeah, sure.

    GORDON RAMSAY: I was 18 years of age.

    ANDREW DENTON: Sure.

    GORDON RAMSAY: My boss’s wife was 30.

    ANDREW DENTON: Yes.

    GORDON RAMSAY: She was hot.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: And I had to think about an early promotion.

    Laughter

    ANDREW DENTON: But ah.

    GORDON RAMSAY: Now.

    ANDREW DENTON: Yes.

    GORDON RAMSAY: I lived in the Wickham Arms. Jackie phoned down and asked me to cook some sort of supper and I ran upstairs because I was rushing around trying to get this, it was like a sort of braised venison in the oven, ran upstairs with my chef jacket on and couldn’t find her anywhere. Walked into the lounge, she wasn’t there, shouted through and I heard her you know shouting in the bathroom. So I went through to the bathroom with a tray and there she way stark bollock naked.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: So I mean ah.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: What do you do?

    Laughter

    ANDREW DENTON: Well obviously service.

    Laughter

    ANDREW DENTON: But I was fascinated with what you wrote about that which was in truth you were more interested in making the jugged hare, than in making love to the boss’s wife?

    GORDON RAMSAY: Yeah.

    ANDREW DENTON: So I’m fascinated that food was totally was totally your passion.

    GORDON RAMSAY: Oh God.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: You get me into so much trouble you know that. I mean, it was really hard for me because they gave me a big break and then it got to a situation where I was sort of you know gaining a reputation which was really strange at sort of you know 18-19, the place was becoming busy, I was dying to get to London, and I was still sort of trying to escape yet I’d sort of fallen in love with my sort of boss’s wife, and she was teaching me everything I needed to know about sex.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: So it was very hard to leave that situation because it was just the most amazing time. I mean wouldn’t any 18 year old guy you know I mean she was beautiful.

    He also mentions a French ex-girlfriend and her lack of waxing…. if you catch my drift,

    GORDON RAMSAY: It looks like my ex-girlfriend’s pair of knickers.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: She was French.

    ANDREW DENTON: Yeah no . . .

    GORDON RAMSAY: Sorry.

    Laughter

    ANDREW DENTON: Well that that excuses all.

    GORDON RAMSAY: Christ there’s some hairs on there as well. What is that?

    Poor old Gorden actually seemed nervous and it looked like he was falling all over himself to come across as “one of the lads”. I think he totally misread the Australian audience. Here’s another sample,

    GORDON RAMSAY: Yesterday. I had my first Australian tonguey.

    ANDREW DENTON: Mmm.

    GORDON RAMSAY: From an 89 year old lady with a beard.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: No teeth and a bit of stubble.

    ANDREW DENTON: Mmm.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: And she can I give you a tonguey, I didn’t know what that was, I went to give her a kiss.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: She grabbed my sort of head and stuck my sort of lips on her lips and then she slipped her tongue in.

    ANDREW DENTON: Wow.

    Laughter

    ANDREW DENTON: It’s actually fresh Australian produce, don’t knock it.

    Laughter

    GORDON RAMSAY: Jesus, and I turned around and Matt Moran, I said mate she’s got to go back in the water.

    Wow, Razz, that’s what I call an Epic comment!
    I see what you mean. Somewhat tasteless conversation. Poor old Oz has this surfie/ rugged outback/ Croc Dundee sort of reputation and people like Gords seem to forget the culture and sensibilities. For instance, I bet Bill Grainger wouldn’t talk about that sort of thing on TV. He’d probably entertain the audience with stories of kitchen disasters while he teaches his kids to cook. Chalk and cheese.
