Surprise, surprise, here is shouty chef Gordon Ramsay saying something offensive about another human being and especially his old foe Jamie Oliver. Last night, Ramsay went on UK presenter Alan Carr's Chatty Man program and proceeded to shit-talk Oliver playground-style, calling the chef fat and smelly, according to The Evening Standard.

Seems Ramsay is none too impressed with Oliver's world-saving ways and apparently speculated on the cancellation of Oliver's US series Food Revolution over Oliver's own weight issues. As Ramsay says, "You have to be very careful when you go across the pond and want to dictate to Americans about healthy eating. .. If you're not in that best shape yourself then you have to be very careful." Burn. And that's not it. Moving onto the next logical schoolyard move, Ramsay went on to tell Carr that Oliver smells, saying, "For Christmas all I want to do is give him a f***ing good wash." Yes, Merry Christmas indeed.

Anyway, this is clearly an epic interview of sorts — Ramsay also posits that Oliver has a crush on his wife, slams fellow chefs Marco Pierre White and Antony Worrall Thompson by saying that even dogs wouldn't eat recipes from their cookbooks, and, inexplicably, seems to have personally stuffed a turkey-suit-wearing Carr if Twitter is to be believed. Oh, and he claims that his potential future business partner David Beckham "cooks really well."
