Guy Fieri appears to have a new project – catering the viral (joke) raid on Area 51.
Earlier this week a seemingly fake Facebook event titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” made headlines when it racked up hundreds of thousands of RSVPs. The event currently has over 1 million Facebook users registered as attending on September 20.
On Wednesday, the Food Network star jokingly announced that he was working on a special recipe for the occasion.
“Workin’ on some new recipes for the folks inside Area 51 ????,” he tweeted. “The Radioactive Ribs are lookin’ goooooood ????????????”

Would this be considered a diner, drive in, or a dive?

Although the event appears to be a joke, the US Air Force told INSIDER that people should keep their distance as the military training area is “dangerous.”
Guy Fieri’s “radioactive ribs” joke appears to be the latest in a string of memes and funny tweets by the celebrity chef (or whoever runs his account).
He recently tweeted a joke promo image for “Law & Order: Flavortown.” He also tweeted a viral “Game of Thrones” reaction video, superimposing the intro to “Diners, Drivers, and Dives” onto the screen.
