In line at the Charlottetown Farmer’s Market for a bagel with smoked salmon this morning, Oliver excitedly pointed down the way and claimed that he saw “the guy from that show.” It turns out he was pointing at Nobu Adilman, erstwhile-Islander and host of television’s Food Jammers (perhaps the greatest food show ever produced for television).
So while Oliver took an opportunity to bask in Nobu’s glow, I took an opportunity to introduce myself to his brother Mio. Regular readers may recall that a couple of weeks ago Mio, in his capacity as Q correspondent, blew the lid off l’affaire café for a national radio audience. Mio graciously offered me protection should my assailant send henchmen my way.
Speaking of television, earlier in the week Oliver and were playing the “name 5 things that are X” game with each other, and my challenge to him was “name 5 people on television.” After the expected Dora, Franklin and Bob The Builder, Oliver named Boomer Gallant and “that other guy who helps Boomer” (who we assumed to be Bruce).
