Food Newswire: Bourdain to Create New Spinoff Show, The Lavatory
Earlier this week the food news blog Eater.com announced that Anthony Bourdain, the junkie line cook turned cult leader, will begin filming on yet another spinoff of his show No Reservations. Unlike his other shows, The Lavatory will focus on the expulsion of food rather than the consumption.
“Everyone gets to watch me travel the world and eat exotic foods but I feel people need to see all aspects of my culinary adventures,” Bourdain said in an exclusive interview with Eater.com. “Just like my minions, I mean viewers, I take a lot of dumps and some of them can get pretty fucked up. What I really like about the show is that we will also cover the best public restrooms the world has to offer so there will be takeaway information from a full hour of watching me sit on the porcelain throne squeezing my shit out.”
Eater.com also unveiled its new, unorthodox, first-hand journalistic approach to covering The Lavatory by promising full Blumpkin and Wiping coverage, finally making the jump from the figurative to the literal in their Bourdain reporting. “We will have one staff member performing fellatio on Tony during each bowel movement and another will wipe his ass when he finishes. Real time updates will be posted to the website and both staff members will be live tweeting during each airing of the show.”
When asked how he felt about Eater.com’s bold new take on journalism, Bourdain said he is “looking forward to it” and hopes he can finagle a Cleveland Steamer and/or Hot Carl in addition to the regular Blumpkin to spice up the show.
The Lavatory will initially only be shown in Germany but individual episodes will be available for purchase online.
