Anthony Bourdain is never one to mince words. So when a heckler, um, heckled him at War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco -- just one stop on his nationwide "The Hunger" tour -- he didn't let it blow over easily.
The stage-crasher in question interrupted the host's show to accuse him of regularly eating -- and enjoying -- dog meat. Amid a chorus of boos, Bourdain let loose. Here are three samples lines of Tony retort, caught by celeb-hound TMZ:
"I like dogs. But how much worse can they be than, like, kale?"
"Twenty more seconds of this I'm going out and shooting a puppy in the fucking head."
"Would you be kind enough now to fuck off?"
Aside from the quips, Bourdain listened to the potential-crazy patiently for about a minute, and allowed the crowd to drown her out and shame her into easing up before she was escorted off the premises. The next day, TMZ caught up with the globe-trotting chef for some post-game insight.
