The men on this green earth who are the most confident in their abilities are currently incarcerated ex-Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner and inexplicably English-sounding Scottish chef, Gordon Ramsay.

While Nicklas Bendtner is objectively a better footballer than most people in the world, his self-belief, though admirable, is largely unfounded. However as for Ramsay, he’s a very proficient chef, having made a name for himself all over the world with TV shows and restaurants.

So when you consider that there’s Thai eateries on every street corner in London and it’s pretty easy to get a decent Pad Thai there, even though he isn’t Thai himself, he should be able to knock up a fairly good plate of the national dish.

Certainly when you take into consideration that Gordon also made a name for himself being a d*ck to most people who cook averagely and composes himself with the clout of someone who invented cooking, he really shouldn’t struggle.

Alas, he did struggle and he got an excellent scolding.

Tasked with cooking for a group of monks, Ramsay takes to the Blue Elephant restaurant, and showcases his own take on the Thai dish to chef Chang.

Have a watch…

It’s not Pad Thai!!!!

Chef Chang is not amused by Ramsay’s noodles and isn’t that just a shame?!

Now, it would be remiss of me not to mention that the monks did actually apparently enjoy the dish…

They eat well, those monks, don’t they?

Ramsay asks whether they enjoyed the Pad Thai and they say “yeah”, essentially. I suppose that’s all you can ask for at the end of the day.

Still, Chang’s face was priceless.
