Gordon Ramsay Takes on the Swedish Chef in a Food Truck Throwdown (Video)

Gordon Ramsay is a potty-mouthed chef known for having a bad temper. Which means he's the perfect foil for another volatile kitchen master: the Swedish Chef.

We're not sure whether the Swedish Chef is cursing while he cooks (when we tried to translate "bork bork bork," we got "bork bork bork"), but we're sure he has some sort of anger management issues.

So when the chef faces Gordon Ramsay's at a local food truck roundup, the fur flies -- literally and figuratively (because, well, Muppets).

In this Muppisode, Kermit and Miss Piggy eat at food trucks, where our favorite porkette chows down on a sea-salt-infused cupcake with a beet juice emulsion. The Swedish Chef has set up shop at his Bork Bork Bork food truck when Gordon Ramsey arrives to reclaim his food truck spot.

The two chefs must battle for the prime space in a chef throwdown. Ramsay enlists Sweetums as his sous-chef, while Beaker assists the Swedish Chef.

We especially like the fact that Ramsay curses in "bleeps," because this is a family-friendly video.

With Statler and Waldorf judging, you know this is going to be a close call, but one chef wins by a technicality:
