To those who feel it’s not possible to take Jerry Springer seriously, I usually reply, “But have you tasted his crabmeat cocktail dip?” While I personally have nothing but disdain for the man and his long-running TV show which exploits the misery of America’s most troubled individuals, I do like the sound of “Jerry Springer’s Crabmeat Cocktail Dip.” In fact, this appetizer may be the most appetizing thing about the guy, so why not have a little fun at his expense and dine out on Jerry for a change?
