Twitter star, Ruth Reichl / Anthony Bourdain mash-up and former 5@5 subject Ruth Bourdain responds to the nomination as a finalist for the inaugural James Beard Journalism Award for Humor Writing telling Eatocracy exclusively:

"I'm incredibly flattered. James Beard and I smoked a sh*tload of tarragon back in the day, so this means a great deal to me. What a great day for journalism."

    Why hasn't food network humor ever even been nominated? It's hilarious and 3 years old now.

    And Cheryl, no, you're not alone. Ruth Bourdain is old news and the nomination of a fake twitter account is lame.

    Am I overreacting in saying that naming a twitter account as a nominee for a James Beard award in the humor category sort of cheapens the whole thing? (and I follow @ruthbourdain and LOVE it/him/her and think it/he/she's really funny). Am I all alone??
