I think it's fair to say that Charles Oakley is one of the more terrifying and intimidating men on the planet. That's why it's probably a no brainer that a penne-penised Food Network producer would probably have a tough time turning down a cooking show featuring him. But the New York Post reported a couple weeks ago that, yes, "Cafe Oak", executive produced and starring Charles Oakley as the host, is not some sort of Mad TV skit gone awry, and is actually making the rounds of some networks in search of a home.
The dearly missed J.E. Skeets actually stumbled across Oak's recipe for beef short ribs, cooked them up, and ingested them like meat-fisted fiend he is. His verdict? "85 out of 10."
