Comparing Guy Fieri to the guy from Smash Mouth or laughing at any of the many Fieri catchphrases out there is as easy as
writing a Nickelback song taking a swipe at Nickelback. See?
It's so easy you maybe forget why so many people are poking fun at Fieri. Wait a second, why are so many people poking fun at Fieri? That's basically the premise behind a bit about the Mayor of Flavortown from comedian Shane Torres. He talked at length about Fieri in a Conan appearance on Monday, and he makes a pretty good point.
Just because Fieri has crazy hair, t-shirts with flames, and his love of barbecue verges on being sexual doesn't mean he's contemptible. He actually has a pretty good sense of humor about it all and, as Torres points out, does a lot of other things he deserves a high five for.
