The funeral for the late Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy will be broadcast on cable television for the world to watch. The brother of former president JFK passed away Tuesday evening due to complications from several health conditions.
The funeral will be shown on The Food Network. A spokesman for the channel said that: "we are showing the services for several reasons. First, Ted went about 350 pounds in his prime and was one of our biggest fans (and I mean that in more ways than one)."
"Secondly, we are showing the funeral in the time slots normally held by Potent Potables and Open Bar, two of the Senator's favorite programs."
"Third, we thought that any man who wanted to be buried in a filled wiskey barrell just had to be covered by our channel."
The Food Network also announced that, from now on, Cob Salad will be called Cape Cod Salad in remembrance of Kennedy.
