Famous Chef Invincible to Veggies ... and Bullets!

3/25/2008 8:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul PrudommeFamed Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme was shot today but amazingly the bullet did no damage. All that extra padding finally paid off!

According to reports, Prudhomme was cooking (of course) at a golf course in Louisiana when he felt something hit his arm. That something was a .22 caliber bullet! It didn't even penetrate his skin.

Police had originally classified the incident as a shooting, but then deemed it a simple complaint. They say a .22 caliber bullet can travel almost two miles, so they may never know who fired the shot. Who needs a bulletproof vest, when you got excess skin!

TMZ, first, i have a POP-UP BLOCKER, that is blocking the LINK to REPORTS, Second, a .22 Cal bullet can travel up to 3 miles when shot. I suspect this is a isolated Hunting incident, and you need to get things together on this as you have in the past.

To-- Anthony Bourdain-- Re: pop-up blocker. Depending on your system, you can hold the "ctrl" button when you click the link and it should work. No guarantees though. As for Paul getting shot... well, I certainly feel better about the "spare tire" I'm walking around with.

Ahhh, ...Strap on a pair, baby boys and girls, the Human body can endure many gunshot, and knife wounds, even in vital organs and recover without permanent damage. On Prudhomme, it did not even break the skin, NO PURPLE HEART AWARD HERE
