Cool, horse rectum!

So maybe we’ve always been screwed up. That’s why you shouldn’t bat an eyelash when you’re glancing at the TV schedule of USA Today — and this happened to me last Monday — to notice that night’s episode of Fear Factor features the four-word synosis, “Contestants eat horse rectum.” I didn’t even blink. I was thinking, “Cool, horse rectum! What channel?” Jeez, how far are we from the days when that synopsis reads, “Contestants eat chunks of a murderered drifter”?
