NBC’s lame attempt at abscheumalerisch cancelled
It’s getting increasingly hard to watch craven spotlight whores chug semen on national television. How’s that for cultural decline, Rick Santorum?
Yes, after a lot of really horrified public outcry, NBC has announced it will not air the episode of Fear Factor where contestants have to drink a beer stein full of donkey semen. The Glee episode where Kurt does that however is still set for later this week. Kidding! But how many erotic fan fics did I just inspire…
Anyway, the thing that really needs to be canceled is just regular Fear Factor. I mean, that show was groundbreaking in 2001 when people were shocked by the shallow depths of early reality TV, but in this age this stunt is just a weird mix of gross and quaint (20 Deutsch Marks to whoever can tell me how say “gross and quaint” in German!). Frankly, I don’t think Snooki or the Kardashians or anyone on basic cable would bat a false eyelash at drinking a mug of donkey jizz. Get with the times, NBC.
