I know guests like my breakfasts, but I should have known that, in my case, fame (or infamy) would show itself in a very unlikely fashion.
Just had the best group of guests leave. Fabulous people. They were here to film a NatGeo episode about one of the finalists in a National Geographer competition. The person they were filming specializes in seals and in particular extracting DNA from seal poop (their words, not mine) - which, as I understand it, she bakes first.
Their script called for them to look for a really good cobbler that they could use as an analogy for baked seal poop. Say yummy things, take a bite and then show how she does the same thing with you know what.
I served them a pear / apple / blueberry / raspberry crisp on their first day ..... I also had friends staying so had made a few extra ...... and I now have the dubious pleasure of waiting for the episode to air so I can watch my fruit starter be compared to seal poop.

I hope the comparison comes off favorably. ;).
The scenario:
I'm in the kitchen plating my main course and very happily listening to Oohs and Aahs and gratifying sounds of happiness as they eat their starter when I hear:
"Oh My God guys - STOP. We've just eaten the perfect seal poop"
What would you think? My face must have said it all - I went rushing into the dining room and they just started to laugh.

I cannot think of anyone else who could pull that off in a positive way!

That is really neat! I wonder if they will credit the crisp! For a bit I was afraid you were going to say they wanted to borrow your oven!
