Compromise

The Discovery Channel has engendered controversy by planning to broadcast a guy (wearing a special suit) getting swallowed by a python.

Apparently this most fetishy of stunts is a bad idea for a number of reasons, but one is that it is not surprisingly very unhealthy and dangerous for the snake to swallow a full-grown human being (that isn't say, Sean Hannity -- which would be unhealthy and dangerous but still a positive for non-snakes).

But this is the Discovery Channel, which is owned by the same people that own TLC, which specializes in exploiting human flesh.

So in the spirit of compromise and consistent with their oeuvre, why not offer to have the python swallow a little person, or the latest little termite to ooze out of a Duggar womb -- you know they'll get crankin' on another?






#badtaste...but not as bad as TLC's badtaste

Well, if I had a vote, it'd be...Hannity. But minus the special suit.

And there would be, maybe not much rejoicing (Wingnuttia is a bottomless pit), but certainly some rejoicing...

Science, yo!

My tarantulas fill their food/victims up with something that turns them into a white goop, which they then drink.

The guy ought to agree to be eaten by tarantulas.

They couldn't feed someone to the lions, but it's in the same spirit. Civilization is indeed a thin veneer.

i read that wrong, i thought you had equated hannity with the snake and he was doing the swallowing...

must be my brain stem coming up with logic again..

be a good way to instill justice on hannity and others.. make em swallow the weight of their lies and the deaths they've caused, wrap em up in the vice grip of the rest of the worlds disbelief and disgust at his antics and make him try to breathe.. then watch him burst at the seams with his own bile...

yeah, that i'd watch

no legless ones need be harmed by some asshole getting swallowed. (they do realize he won't survive, right? nor would the snake... dumb shits all!)

An ideal python smorgasbord, in no order of preference: Hannity, Boehner, McConnell, Cruz, O'Reilly, Palin, Malkin, Norquist, and the entire Heritage Foundation.

Only if the python were really, really big and really, really hungry would we feed it Limbaugh and Christie.

Wouldn't want the poor creature to get a bowel obstruction.

Pansy. Not possible. Professional courtesy among snakes (in the grass types).
