Mario Batali Has a Serious Bro Crush on Jake Gyllenhaal

Did you know that today is National Spaghetti Day? Neither did my grandmother, and she's been making spaghetti since Giuseppe Garibaldi reunified Italy and promised spaghetti and meatballs for everyone. To celebrate National Spaghetti Day, Mario Batali had actor and amateur cook Jake Gyllenhaal on ABC's The Chew to cook some spaghetti and regale the audience with tales of ribaldry from the cinematheque. It was all very delightful. Mario then asked Jake, bro to bro, what he cooks when he's looking for bounteous compliments from his dinner guests. And, you guys, Jake said, "I think it all depends on what's fresh," which turns out to be best phrase for getting into Mario Batali's chef pants because he immediately grasped Jake Gyllenhaal's sinewy body and asked, "How could you love this dude any more?"

Normally I just let this kind of thing go but I'm SO tired of seeing any contact between men for any reason (in this case a very enthusiastic way in which to agree with someone) being perceived as OMG he so LUVS him 4EVA. Even if it's a joke.
