Discovery’s new show: Watch a snake eat a guy

Step aside, Nicki Minaj, there’s a new anaconda in town.

The Discovery channel will debut a new series called “Eaten Alive” in December.

Apparently, on the premiere episode a guy will be swallowed alive by a giant snake after covering himself in pig’s blood while wearing a custom-built suit. Seems suspicious.

Is it animal abuse? Is it criminal stupidity? Is it possible?

Whatever, just don’t watch.
