My !#*&%@%!!!, ‘Tis of Thee: Trying to Be Patriotic, Brian Malarkey Goes Deeply Un-American















It’s not as if we don’t agree with his point, possums, but “o” what a difference one little letter can make.

(We ought to say, by way of disclaimer and confession, that though we were quite rough with him during his season, we have developed rather a soft spot for ol’ Brian. Whatever else one can say about him (and we said it all), he had personality and gave us lots of material, which is more than one can say for a lot of the people who came after him. The little mad hatter himself, perhaps with the passage of time, has become quite a good sport about the whole thing, which is really the best way for cheftestants to play things. We daresay “Asshat” would seem a term of endearment these days, and you know, it would be. And don’t think we missed it when he called us “twisted.” Coming from MFMalarkey, we can think of no higher praise; we practically purred with pleasure.)

As for the substance of his charges, yes, absolutely. In These Troubled Times, we ought to buy American and bitch American. Besides, isn’t it the teensiest bit hypocritical for Bravo, with all its much-touted and much-vaunted “green” initiatives, to bring in a critic with such a large carbon footprint?

On the other hand, as Miss XaXa points out, Toby Young is so full of shit that maybe Bravo thought it environmentally sound to spread all that manure around.



UPDATE: Bravo fixes the country!

Somebody's a little bit xenophobic, as well as bad at spelling.

I work in the City, but LIVE in the Cuntry. ;)

Besides his spelling blunders. He has Jamie going home instead of Melissa.

Guess Bravo can't afford proof readers!

I never found Mr. Seafood that interesting when he was on the show, and find him less so now. I don't get his popularity.

It's funny that he needles Toby Young for the same snarky stuff he tries to do in his blog. Dolt.

Malarkey is in tonight's episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County! Cooking, of course, strictly cooking. I don't know about the full episode but watching this clip, there's no missing him: http://bit.ly/GrPK

I read that blog and did not catch that typo. Thanks guys!

I wonder what kind of spell checker old MFMalarkey has that doesn't flag that mistake. Nice that BRAVO gave you props and proves that they monitor your blog.
