Chef Blurts: 'On Behalf of All the People of England, Congrats' on Obama

No place is safe from expressions from foreigners pleased by Barack Obama's election. On Monday's Late Show, in the midst of demonstrating how to prepare a recipe for squid, British chef Jamie Oliver paused to tell David Letterman: 

Can I just say, on behalf of all the people of England, congratulations on your new President. We like him very much.

Letterman replied: “Oh, that's nice to hear. Thank you very much.”

Oliver, “The Naked Chef,” was on the show to promote his new book, Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life.
