Yet this morning (Friday, August 5), the co-host failed to keep her composure and fell into fits of laughter when the Spanish sausage became a topic of conversation as she was going through today’s newspaper headlines.
Charlie Stayt then announced he wanted to address “things that are just not true.”
The co-host held up a picture of the salami-like meat before attempting multiple variations of the word chorizo.

“Maybe people have seen this story before, I’ve actually seen it on the internet”, he first claimed.
“There was a picture which apparently was reported to be a picture in deep space and it ended up that in fact it was a slice of chorizo.”
Naga immediately chuckled and, poking fun at him, encouraged him to repeat the word.
“What was it a slice of Charlie?”, she asked to which the latter responded with what seemed like an Italian accent.

He proudly replied: “It was chorizo”, before switching to another European variation.
“Or chorizo”, he added as Naga was laughing away.
Charlie eventually gave up trying to pronounce the word: “You know what I’m saying, it was a piece of sausage basically.”
Instead of trying to perfect the his enunciation, Charlie explained the hoax, telling viewers it had come from a well-respected French scientist and director of research for atomic energy.
The scientist had fooled the Internet with a picture of the sausage and making them believe the snap was a deep space photo.
Due to his pristine reputation, nobody thought twice and immediately believed he was being truthful.
But when they failed to question the picture, the scientist saw he had proven his point.
According to Charlie, the scientist purposely posted the picture as a social experiment.
