VIDEO- Hurricane Irene reporter: Weird stuff "didn't taste great." Oops. "Apparently, it was raw sewage."


"Be careful with that 'weird stuff'"...

Some of the footage of television reporters putting themselves in the most extreme position possible just to get the best “stand-up” live shot was beyond parody.

First prize went to Tucker Barnes, a reporter for Fox 5, who went live from Ocean City, Maryland amid a strange, brown foamy substance. He reported that it “didn’t taste great” and had a “sandy consistency”. Apparently, it was raw sewage:

Oh. My. God. Ew.
