“Only Shooting Stars Break the Mold”

He is literally hated by his peers, considered crude, boorish and untalented. But despite having had some failed businesses he continued to work his butt off, kept his nose to the grindstone and somehow managed to survive. Well, not just survive, thrive. Somehow this unsophisticated rube managed to write several books while also building an eponymous international business empire that employs thousands of people. He’s successful beyond most people’s wildest dreams, and still, he’s ridiculed endlessly by the elites. 

No, not Donald Trump, Guy Fieri, the Donald Trump of Flavortown:


I'm aware he's the subject of a fair amount of ridicule from some of our best restaurant critics and biggest celebrity chefs. Some people confuse him for a member of Smash Mouth or Insane Clown Posse. He's practically a meme walking among us. I get all that, I do. But I need to put all of that to the side of my overflowing plate for now. - GQ

Sometimes you don’t want precious food - a tiny dab of deconstructed molecular gastronomy that used to be food, served in the center of a 16 inch white plate - smothered in foam and/or smoke.


you just want a damn good juicy burger made in a Mom and Pop Diner, Drive-in or Dive.


Okay, maybe with a little Donkey Sauce:

Yes, Donkey Sauce is just a silly name  for aioli. Yes, he wears pinky rings and his goatee looks ridiculous. Yes, the staff at his El Burro Borracho in Laughlin, NV, isn’t waiting for that third Michelin star. But through hard work, Guy Fieri transformed himself from a short-order cook in the sticks into a one-man industry that has boosted the fortunes of countless mom-and-pop diners, hired countless people, and entertained millions.  - Ricochet

Everything else on the menu is just a void, filled with smoke, mirrors. For $39 a pop.

Americans finally began to ask “where’s the beef?”

And that’s why Donald Trump is President – only shooting stars break the mold.

Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
