WASHINGTON - First lady, Laura Bush, has selected foul mouthed, ex footballer, Gordon Ramsay as White House Executive Pastry Chef and praised him on Monday for originality and a light touch with desserts.
Ramsay, who joined the White House in November as a holiday pastry chef, replaced Thaddeus DuBois who left last year, after an unsavory episode in which he had been discovered defecating on the 'Mousse de saumen et capres'.
DuBois had been an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq and had clashed several times with Mr Bush over his radical views. At a state dinner celebrating the Presidents birthday, Mr DuBois had presented him with a chocolate cake with the words, 'Fuck You, Babykiller', spelled out in M&Ms.
Mr Ramsay is said to be 'over the fuckin' moon' with his new appointment and, when asked what the President and First Lady would be getting for their tea, replied 'a fuckin' omlette'
