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

November 11th, 2008 11:34 AM
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.
