Chef Paul Prudhomme: ‘It’s just a flesh wound’

March 26th, 2008 // 24 Comments

Famous New Orleans chef and TV personality Paul Prudhomme took a bullet to the arm at a golf course and kept cooking like it ain’t no thing. One time I burnt my hand on the toaster making Pop Tarts and hid under my bed for a week. This man is hardcore. The AP reports:

Prudhomme shook his shirt sleeve and a .22 caliber bullet fell to the ground, a spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies believe Prudhomme was hit by a falling bullet, probably shot about 9:30 a.m. from somewhere within a 1 1/2-mile radius of the golf course, said Col. John Fortunato. Prudhomme did not require medical attention.
“He thought it was a bee sting,” Fortunato said. “Within five minutes, he was back to doing his thing.”

So being morbidly obese makes you invincible? I don’t think I like the message this conveys. Somebody hide all the firearms from Jennifer Love Hewitt before she gets any idea. Or at least take her to Applebee’s beforehand.

    Dom Deluise?

    He makes the best food of all time. I must say I am surprised to find out that one can golf from a rolling chair. Or did he just stay in the golf cart?

  3. Ha!

    Take that you health freaks!

    woodhorse, they make special carts for the handicapped. You just swing your chair around & golf from that. Although this dude is huge. I hope his cart is equipped with special shocks.

    Just one example of why Fish’s theory is wrong: Biggie Smalls.

  5. gotmilk?

    wait, he’s got a cane AND a motorized chair? no wonder why he’s fat!

    Dont you have any shots of this fat sack of shit in a bikini.

  7. Drdanny

    More likely some hunter thought he was bagging the infamous Louisiana white-coated wild boar. Prudhomme’s just lucky the guy had the wrong weapon.

    “Please, do not fire into the air in celebration! The bullets will come down and kill my sister.”

    Too bad the bullet didn’t pierce the chef’s skull.

    One thing: The report failed to include that Prudhomme promply made a special chili bullet souffle. Prudhomme’s special ingredient: Male anus.

    Yeah, I’ve been away. So fucking what?

  10. Composer

    Didn’t anyone else see the episode of Mythbusters with the falling bullet?

  11. You know fat people perspire in copious amounts, but this is the first tie I’ve ever heard of one actually sweating bullets…

  19. Tapeworm

    I’m surprised the bullet didn’t ricochet off of that fat tub of goo and put someone’s eye out.
