Bourdain, cocaine. Hey, that kind of rhymes.

No reason why the Travel Channel's No Reservations star and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain shouldn't burn 6 tons of fresh, uncut, powder cocaine with the Director of National Security of Panama.

Yeah there is. He's a TV chef. Why the hell is he burning all that blow? It could be keeping his producers up for weeks thinking up new ways for him not to cook, eat, or talk about food.

The load comprises $300 to $600 million worth of cocaine in kilo blocks.

Some would say it's Miami's number one import.

"15 years ago this would have been what I asked Santa to bring me for Christmas," said Bourdain.
