John:
Rachael Ray, the sellout who taught us not to tip for 40 Dollars a Day, is the new pitchwoman for Dunkin’ Donuts. What’s worse is that on October 14th Rachael launched the Web site www.yum-o.org . Yum-O is a nonprofit organization encouraging children and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking. Are you kidding? The president for Dunkin’ Donuts says that Rachael will help develop “better food choices” for the chain. That’s like what Big Tobacco said when they developed light cigarettes, right? I’m sure money had nothing to do with her selling out. More Rachael on Derober’s home page.

Anthony Bordain, the culinary host of No Reservations fired back at Rachael last week:

“She’s got a magazine, a TV empire, all these best-selling books – I’m guessing she’s not hurting for money. She’s hugely influential, particularly with children. And she’s endorsing Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s like endorsing crack for kids.” Bourdain adds: “I’m not a very ethical guy. I don’t have a lot of principles. But somehow that seems to me over the line. Juvenile diabetes has exploded. Half of Americans don’t have necks. And she’s up there saying, ‘Eat some [bleeping] Dunkin’ Donuts. You look great in that swimsuit – eat another doughnut!’ That’s evil.”
