If you haven't heard of Ruth Bourdain, the Twitter mashup of food rock stars Ruth Reichl and Anthony Bourdain, you need to. It's possibly the funniest thing we've heard in weeks. Months. Longer. To get up to speed on what you've been missing, read the tumblr, the tweets, and today's profile by Food News Journal.

@ruthbourdain hit Twitter two weeks ago, a hilarious send up of two very distinct personalities, who are–of course–as much-loved by the author of the tweets as the rest of us. Ruth Reichl, the legendary former editor of Gourmet, tweets; Anthony Bourdain does not, although he may just have to. No word on what the No Reservations host thinks of this, but Reichl, a very funny woman in her own right, tweeted back this morning: “@kimseverson Flo Fab as @ruthbourdain? Now THAT would be a surprise!”
