This surreal exchange among judges gets my vote for the funniest moment yet on this season’s Top Chef:

Toby Young describes Eli’s pork balls as looking like “a couple of bull’s testicles.”

To which Padma Lakshmi chimes in: “Believe it or not, I’ve actually had bull’s testicles…”

At which point, Penn interrupts Padma for a two-word quip: “I’ll bet.”

And without pausing to reflect on what compliment (or insult) Penn has just delivered, Padma marches right along with her thought: “And these are actually a little big.”
