Anthony Bourdain Meets Bill Murray. Just Click This, OK?

This is what happens when worlds collide, as some shitty '90s band once said.

Sometimes two visionaries cross paths, and the world changes. Like Jordan going one-on-one with Kobe; Malcolm X meeting MLK Jr.; Clapton playing lead with the Beatles -- such an event occurred in Charleston, South Carolina in the not-too-distant past, and it was caught on HD video. Two iconoclasts that blur the lines between entertainer and philosopher: Bill Murray and Anthony Bourdain. It happened once before when the duo crossed paths on camera in the Hudson Valley, and the Internet somehow managed to stay intact. 

This time, on Bourdain's new gig on CNN's Parts Unknown the acclaimed chef/writer met with the even more acclaimed actor/author/tarp-slider to make a case for Charleston being a food capital unlike any other. For the record, Murray is part-owner and "Director of Fun" for the Charleston RiverDogs, a minor league baseball team. Which may or may not be true (I have it on good authority that it is). I know for a fact Waffle House is heavily highlighted in this particular episode, so it has my undivided attention, with or without ol' Bill.
