Top Chef Is Top Hero

| Filed under: Etc.Inspiration

We suppose that if you're in the business of making food for folks to eat, you should probably also know how to dislodge it should it go down the wrong tube!

Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio was attending an Art.Food.Hope dinner in Washington, DC, when cookbook author Joan Nathan began choking on a piece of chicken.

That sounds dirty!

Colicchio quickly administered the Heimlich Maneuver, and then humbly brushed off the heroics with a "I just happened to be nearby."

But Joan gushed, "He's so strong!" And sexy!

    For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here's a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?

    Here in Australia it's called the Hind Lick Maneuver - when the subject is choking you quickly stand them up, expose their buttocks and apply one long, quick lick to the area, the subject then ejects the lodged item in their throat (probably due to shock) and all is good again . . .
    Harry, I thought you'd like this version.

    Re: harrybalsac – #10 Its just after 4am now, but you prob left your comment an hour ago. I'm so lost with all these posts - I keep going back to check on replies - I don't want to offend anyone by not answering.
    This is much easier once you guys are all done, but a hell of a lot more fun trying to keep up.

    Re: LizardKinG – This may not come as a total shock, but there was one party back in the late 90's when Mistress actually did shoot beer out of her nose. This was a knee jerk response after witnessing a total drop kick fall off her back balcony whilst pissed as and I'd just had a big chug a lug on my larger and the resulting laugh forced said beer from Mistress's proboscis. Ah good fun was had by all . . .
