Yet another greedy moron that makes me ashamed to be a fellow bipedal, cognitive mammal:

NBC's 'Fear Factor' Sued for Rat-Eating Episode

Watching contestants eat dead rats on NBC's gross-out stunt show "Fear Factor" so disgusted a Cleveland man that he has sued NBC for $2.5 million, saying he could not stomach what he saw.

In a handwritten four-page lawsuit filed in federal court in Cleveland on Tuesday, paralegal Austin Aitken said, "To have the individuals on the show eat (yes) and drink dead rats was crazy and from a viewer's point of view made me throw-up as well an another in the house at the same time."

His suit added, "NBC is sending the wrong message to its TV watchers that cash can make or have people do just about anything beyond reasoning (sic) and in most cases against their will."

He said the show caused his blood pressure to rise so high that he became dizzy and light-headed, and when he ran away to his room, he bumped his head into the doorway.

In a brief telephone interview with Reuters, Aitken said, "I am not at liberty to discuss the complaint unless it is a paid-interview situation."

A spokesman for "Fear Factor" said the show would have no comment until it sees a copy of the complaint. The spokesman said the program did feature an rat-eating scene in New York's Times Square on Nov. 8.

Over the years, contestants on the program have eaten some weird things, including ground-up spiders and live worms.

Really...sometimes they make it so easy for me.

Asshat-Aitken says he feels that shows like "Fear Factor" are sending a wrong message by saying that people will do anything for a few bucks. An interesting insight considering Mr. Asshat is bringing a lawsuit against a T.V. show for making him ill and refusing to do interviews about said suit unless there are dollar-signs attached.

Pray tell, exactly what is this 2.5 million dollars covering? How did you arrive at this amount? Just because you have a weak stomach, puked on your grandma's rug, then bumped your head on the doorway as you ran from your horrible, evil, wicked T.V.? For this, the show you were watching owes you millions of dollars. Oh yes, it all makes sense to me now. Why didn't I see it before??

You were running away from your T.V. set. Ever heard of a remote? It comes with a number of features that could've ended your terrors, and much more efficiently. There's the next channel button, the previous channel button, and even an off button. Imagine the possibilities.

Why stop at "Fear Factor"? Why not sue the network that allowed this show to air - to even exist, for that matter? Why not sue the people on the show who ate the rats for money and made you toss your cookies? While we're at it, let's sue everyone that watches the show; because of them this kind of crap continues to play on the air. Hell, why not sue your mother for giving birth to you in the first place & causing you to be alive and watching TV the day some morons on "Fear Factor" ate rats; that bitch.

Shit, why don't you sue me? Because in all honestly the mental picture of you, in a state of utter horror, running from your T.V. and smack-dab into the doorway of your room caused me to laugh so hard I fell out of my chair. On second thought, I could sue you...
