"I like to do demos because they let me vent," Michael Symon admitted in Aspen. Which was fine by the crowd. It was only 10 a.m. on Friday, but the audience was roaring with laughter. At his In Praise of Pork seminar, the Iron Chef, who's set to release a book with Michael Ruhlman this November, showed that he's just like us.

Food author Michael Ruhlman — you may remember him from The Next Iron Chef — and bad boy Anthony Bourdain have put their heads together and have created the Golden Clog Awards. They said it's born out of "too many beers and late night yakatori," and I think it's just downright fun. The categories are hysterical, and their reasons even more so. Bourdain has actually managed to nominate himself for an award even! The actual awards will take place this Friday, but if you're curious to see the categories — including "The Alton" and "The Douchebag" — and nominees, read more
