Chef Gordon Ramsay Almost Drowns While Hunting Birds

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is no stranger to animal controversy. PETA has slammed the guy repeatedly for encouraging Brits to consume more horse meat — and he caused a storm of outrage when he taunted Victoria Beckham over the impending death of some lambs he was allowed to let graze on her property. Lately, however, he’s been on the other side of the fence — receiving praise for his work to encourage the purchase of organic, free range chickens and local produce.

Every now and again, however, the old Gordon resurfaces. In this case, literally.

While recently filming a scene in Iceland for the BBC’s cooking show The F Word, Ramsay lost his footing scampering down a 280ft. cliff and plunged into the freezing water. The chef credits himself as an “extremely good swimmer”, but panicked when he realized his waterproof boots were dragging him down. From the article,

“‘I was panicking and my lungs were filling with water. When I got to the top after getting my boots off I was dazed and my head was totally numb.'”

What was Ramsay doing in Iceland? Hunting cute little puffins along the cliff side. “We had a license to cull 1,000,” he said. For the record, one puffin did manage to bite the chef on the nose — but the rest appear to have ended up on dinner plates. Guess Mother Nature’s warning wasn’t harsh enough.

Next time, send sharks. With laser beams.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
