Bobby Flay Gives a Sarah Palin-esque Answer to What He'd Study at College

Conjuring up now-fading memories of Sarah Palin's notorious CBS interview with Katie Couric in which she replied "all of them" to the question what newspapers or magazines do you regularly read, Bobby Flay, who was in DC last week to attend the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, told People magazine that he wants to go to college and go "back to Georgetown," adding that "it's a really cool place."

When asked what he wanted to study, the Flayster (a high school dropout) reportedly said "anything."

"I didn't go to college. I'm ready to start over," said Flay.

Start over? If you haven't done so already, how about getting that high school diploma or GED before you start planning your fall college schedule, Bobby boy! ;-)

Not like Bobby, who has a million shows on Food Network and another planned for Scripps' new Cooking Channel, would have any time to devote to studies. I'd stick with cooking!


Sorry for the longest break I've ever taken from blogging since I started back in TWO-THOUSAND-AND-SIX. That's like a thousand years in blog. I'm sorry. I don't really have any specific reason for it other than I've been busy still getting used to my new digs in D.C.... and I honestly haven't really felt like it. I've been blogging for so long and, not to sound cliche, but you really have to be in a certain place in your life to blog with any kind of regularity. Right now, I'm not really in that space. I have other "real" jobs that take up a lot of my time and I don't always delegate as much time to Food Network watching and reviewing as I used to. Not saying that I won't again in the future... but, for now, I'm enjoying just writing about what comes along that interests me.

That's not to say I'm not still paying attention. I'm still reading and enjoying all your comments and emails. If you have suggestions, please send em my way (comments or foodnetworkaddict (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks and kisses for all the years of reading! I'm still here!

I know I'm in the minority being a Bobby Flay fan, but let's be fair. He does have his GED. C'mon, didn't you see his Chefography? I don't mind people poking fun at him, but don't lie.

I can't believe you are dissing His Majesty, Bobby Flay.

Does this mean The FN cut you loose ?

What happened ? Write a post about it Jake .

I had no idea that Bobby never graduated from high school. You have to give him credit for determination tho. I wish him well.

It's really bad form to make fun of somebody for not having an education. Shame on you.

I like Bobby...but he needs to stop chewing his fingernails. VERY unappetizing, Bobby. Can't he afford a manicure?
