Best New Phrase of 2007: Cheeto Cock

Alright, so maybe it's not the most subtle of phrases, but Michael Midgley, the latest contestant to be eliminated on Top Chef, shared his insights on the show with Chow. The man certainly does dish on his competitors, judges, and former employers, but the best part may be when good old Mike says that during the Quickfire challenge dealing with junk food, he just wanted to get Suzanne Goin to eat a "Cheeto Cock." From the interview:

Michael: The Cheeto Penis, that was for Suzanne Goin, baby...I went through a bag of Cheetos to find one that looked like a penis and I was gonna puree a Snickers Bar into a chocolate salty ball. I was going to make her eat a Cheeto cock. Suzanne Goin is like, what is this? And I was, like, put it in your mouth, find out.
Ballsy, indeed.
