Melissa McCarthy and Stephen Colbert Spoofing Chopped Is Both Hilarious and Disgusting

04/06/2016 at 11:18 AM ET

Good news: Melissa McCarthy likes binging on Chopped just as much as you do.

On The Late Show on Tuesday night, The Boss actress and her filmmaker husband Ben Falcone told Stephen Colbert that the Food Network competition is their favorite show to watch with their daughters. Colbert agreed, declaring that he is also “obsessed” with the show.

And so, the late-night host created his own version — called Smooshed, because it’s condensed down to four minutes —  for McCarthy and Falcone to go head-to-head.

The mystery ingredients were salted crackers, mini marshmallows and bacon bits. Also available, of course, were the pantry ingredients (which consisted of “whatever we could find in the break room fridge”).

Falcone actually turned out a rather composed dish which he called a “bacon bit marshmallow Saltine” that also includes “just a little bit of pickle for taste.” Like a salty s’more! But, you know, with pickles instead of chocolate. Colbert bravely choked the dish, which he called “both tart and dry at the same time.”

McCarthy, on the other hand, got a little sloppy with the plating of what she called a “Tuscan-influenced rustic hash,” which as far as we can tell is just bologna mixed with mayo, marshmallows, pickles and crushed crackers. Points reduced for her exclusion of the bacon bits, obviously.

Colbert describes the dish as have a “certain amount of testicularity,” which we don’t believe is a real word much less anything we want to associate with eating.

In the end, Colbert declared McCarthy’s dish the victor, which he then proceeded to literally smoosh and shovel into his face.

You can also look at the yards per throw but that’s partially addressed in the total yardage stat above. Rocket League will launch on Xbox One this coming Wednesday, Feb. In fact the top producers employ systems and strategies to build connection and relationship with prospects long before trying to sell them on their primary business opportunity.

Can I say what relief to get somebody who in fact knows what theyre dealing with online. You certainly know how to bring a challenge to light and produce it critical. More people need to see this and fully grasp this side with the story. I cant think youre not more well-known because you undoubtedly develop the gift.
