Everyone loves an easy homemade recipe, but you should probably check Grandma June's credentials before you dive into her peach cobbler, or suffer the same fate as these unfortunate newscasters. Five local stations in the Midwest all fell for the tricks of "Chef Keith", who was really comedian Nick Prueher conning them into eating truly disgusting food. Armed with a white apron and obnoxious toque, Prueher convinced the whole gang that mashed potato ice cream cones and ham smoothies were great ways to utilize their holiday leftovers, and that despite his non sequiturs about suicide rates, he was a pro. Things go downhill from there. Watch the horrific results above.
