I was unfortunately unaware of Ruth Bourdain until reading this article. There's some pretty funny stuff there.

I wasn't aware of him, either. I like this exchange:

GL: And your celebratory drink of choice?

RuBo: Have you had a Turduckennog? That's turkey eggs, chicken eggs, and duck eggs, blended with cream, milk, and nutmeg and spiked with rum, bourbon, and brandy. Delicious!

Off topic but I find it interesting that lately I am seeing examples of men with names I thought were women's names, Ruth, and last night I met a male Sabrina, and one I heard last week but cannot recall what the name was, right now.

No. It's too much work fitting one egg inside the other before cracking.

But this Ruth wasn't the mans name, it was supposed to be a woman.

The joke was that the attitudes were half Ruth Reichl and half Tony Bourdain. In fact the guy writing the tweets or blog was male, and he recently "came out" as the secret author.
