In a story on the Hollywood Reporter about the "enduring worldwide popularity" of the TV series Hell's Kitchen — ten seasons and counting — shouty chef Gordon Ramsay admits somebody once offered him $25,000 to call them a "fucking donkey" on their birthday. Quote:

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.

When Gordon Ramsay needs money, he does Acura ads and puts his name on kitchenware at Kmart, he doesn't yell at random strangers on the street for cash, okay?
