Hope that's not the snake. (via)
If all goes according to plan, on December 7th, you'll get to see a guy get puked up by an anaconda on TV. That's because the dwindling staff who make up the nature department at the Discovery Channel have given up on finding Bigfoot for long enough to discover how much snake abuse they can get away with on television. On a special called Eaten Alive, "naturalist and wildlife filmmaker" Paul Rosolie will be swallowed whole by a hungry and unlucky anaconda that won't know it's being punk'd as part of a stunt that sounds like it was ripped from a David Blaine notebook labeled "Bad Ideas."
Rosolie will be wearing a "snake proof suit," which will supposedly allow him to survive being crushed, swallowed, and regurgitated by the incredibly bummed snake. Who knows what will actually happen on the show. Hopefully, the special will follow the Finding Bigfoot blueprint and be an hour of dramatic buildup ending in failure. Which will at least be better than watching a snake being gutted to save a stuntman with no respect for nature who calls himself a "naturalist."
