Anthony Bourdain

"No Reservations" host Anthony Bourdain stopped by "The Daily Show" on Thursday night to promote the eighth season of his show (premiering April 9 on the Travel Channel). Jon Stewart remarked that he felt like Bourdain's job is "what people do if they didn't have to work." "I have the best job in the world," replied Bourdain, "there's no doubt about it.

Stewart later joked that he had gotten diarrhea merely from watching "No Reservations." Bourdain understood; he apparently jokes with his crew that "if there's not at least a 50% chance of diarrhea when you eat something, it's almost not worth eating."

Like Bourdain is wont to do, he compared food to sex. He felt that people that aren't interested in food were equivalent to people that didn't like music, or sex.

Generally speaking, this appearance was probably on the milder side for Bourdain. He didn't call out anyone specifically (cough cough Paula Deen) or say anything particularly controversial. Instead, you get to see why exactly Bourdain loves his job so much -- he goes to cool places and drinks with cool people.
