Jack Porter and Jaxton Wheeler are the featured actors; In the scene, a man hires a chef to cook for his wife, only to notice upon the chef’s arrival that he is actually a naked chef. (Literally. Not figuratively.) The cook makes a salad, and then the two men start having sex near the kitchen counter.

The wife comes in, sits down, and starts eating the salad and then discovers that her husband and the cook are escorting her behind the counter. The moment of realization is so classic: “You’re… not wearing a shirt,” she says, narrowing her eyes. “Wait a minute, are you wearing pants?” And then, the proverbial cheese drops: “Are you guys talking nonsense? Are you serious? Right in front of my salad?”
