I'll Take 'Fucking Donkey' For $25,000, Alex

The Hollywood Reporter made mention in an article about the continuing success of Hells Kitchen [it's the swearing and abuse] that some numnutz offered Chef Gordon Ramsay $25,000 bucks to call him a "Fucking Donkey" during the opening days of Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas.

For his part, Ramsay notes that one downside of global recognition for being a hard-ass on TV is that many see his authentic indignation as merely an act generated at will: "I was in Las Vegas recently and someone said, 'I'll pay you $500 to call me a f---ing donkey.' I said no. He goes: 'It's my birthday! Just scream at me! $5,000. Please!' He kept going up and up. I finally stopped him at something like 25 grand. I told him that when I get upset, it's for real."

Dear numnutz, I'll do it for $5k.

Thanks to VT superfriend Middleclassbuzz for the tip (via Eater)!

people are weird. he ould've gotten him to curse for free if he kept bugging him. compromise.

"I'm not going to stop following you until you cuss at me" Might have worked. Or gotten them arrested.

Why the hell wouldn't he do it and donate it to charity or something?
