Anthony Bourdain On 'Real Time With Bill Maher': A Great Meal vs. Mediocre Sex (VIDEO)

On Friday night, Anthony Bourdain was a guest on 'Real Time With Bill Maher.' They discussed things Bourdain had in common with the Tea Party, which included basically beer and barbecue. "That's setting the bar really low in having things in common," replied Maher. "But it's something," retorted Bourdain, who also asserted that eating "delicious, slow-cooked pork" can be a good beginning to conversation.

Then, Maher posed the much-argued question: food versus sex. Maher asks Bourdain, "If you had to choose between a great meal and mediocre sex, what would you choose?" Bourdain hedges a bit. "Well, that calls for a qualitative answer, depends who is cooking and who is f*cking, you know?"
