Hell's Kitchen: Gordon Ramsay Eats A $145 Bowl Of Torture Soup [VIDEO]

Gordon Ramsay makes a living cooking, yelling at people, and cursing a lot. He also does that in this video. For good reason. Shark fin soup, a Chinese delicacy that can cost $145 (or £90) a bowl, apparently would be just as good without any shark fin. Yet fishermen go to great lengths to get it – really disturbing lengths. You may be thinking to yourself, "I've heard about this stuff before, I don't want to hear any more." I'd urge you to pause and watch this instead of thinking that. It's hard to watch but there's a big payoff. There's a hopeful ending that you could help with.

At 1:49, the soup review is in. At 3:00, he finds out why people bother eating it. At 5:00, things start to get slightly disturbing. At 7:10, he shares some horrifying math.  At 7:58, Gordon expresses how we're all feeling (NSFW). And most importantly, at 13:00, he does something with all his outrage and asks local Chinese restaurants to take shark fin off their menus. At 14:30, we see what they decided.

Remember those beloved Richard Scarry books from when you were a kid?

Like a lot of people, I grew up reading them. And now, I read them to my kids.

The best!

If that doesn't ring a bell, perhaps this character from the "Busytown" series will. Classic!

Scarry was an incredibly prolific children's author and illustrator. He created over 250 books during his career. His books were loved across the world — over 100 million were sold in many languages.

But here's something you may not have known about these classics: They've been slowly changing over the years.

Don't panic! They've been changing in a good way.

Imagine rummaging through secondhand finds in your local thrift store, only to find that some items include a bonus feline at no extra charge.

Montequlla the orange tabby had somehow not gotten the memo that he and his family were moving. As they dropped off furniture, including a big recliner chair, to the Denver Arc Thrift Store on New Year’s Eve, they had no idea that poor little Montequlla was tucked away inside.

Luckily, the staff began to notice the chair meowing.

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937) and actor Peter Dinklage.

On Tuesday, Upworthy reported that actor Peter Dinklage was unhappy with Disney’s decision to move forward with a live-action version of “Snow White and the Seven Drawfs” starring Rachel Zegler.

Dinklage praised Disney’s inclusive casting of the “West Side Story” actress, whose mother is of Colombian descent, but pointed out that, at the same time, the company was making a film that promotes damaging stereotypes about people with dwarfism.

"There's a lot of hypocrisy going on, I've gotta say, from being somebody who's a little bit unique," Dinklage told Marc Maron on his “WTF” podcast.

"Well, you know, it's really progressive to cast a—literally no offense to anybody, but I was a little taken aback by, they were very proud to cast a Latino actress as Snow White," Dinklage said, "but you're still telling the story of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.' Take a step back and look at what you're doing there.”
