10 Unknown Facts about: Chairman Mark Decascos

Ladies and Gentlemen, I can't speak for you, but I personally love Iron Chef America. To the point where I decided this week that I would research The Chairman Mark Decascos for our little Ten Facts Tuesday. I was quite surprised by what I discovered. So, without further adieu, I present to you...

10 Unknown Facts about The Chairman Mark Decascos.
  1. Mark is just a stage name. His first name really is The Chairman. His middle name is Periwinkle.
  2. The Chairman can slow roast a 12 pound turkey in twenty minutes. For this, he is not allowed to participate in the one hour challenge.
  3. The Chairman can chop a subcompact car in half with his hand or a knife. He's not picky.
  4. The Chairman is never surprised by the surprise ingredient.
  5. The Chairman once catered a tea party for the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Door Mouse.
  6. The Chairman can parallel park a perpendicular line.
  7. The Chairman can hold his breath for three hours.
  8. The Chairman cannot tell a lie. If he does, the terrorists really do win.
  9. Contrary to popular belief, the Chairman was not named for Mao Ze Dong. His parents just liked chairs. A lot.
  10. When playing Rock-Paper-Scissors with The Chairman, his scissors will always beat whatever you throw.
There's a little something to think about next time you watch him reveal a plate full of kelp with all the urgency of a man on fire. The Chairman is far more than simply a man with a flair for lifting lids.
