Fear Factor Folly

This is pretty funny. A Fear Factor viewer is suing NBC for watching contestants eat rats.

Aitken's handwritten lawsuit contends the rat-eating made his blood pressure rise, resulting in being dizzy and lightheaded -- and vomiting. Because he was disoriented he ran into a doorway, "causing suffering, injury and great pain."

Asked why he didn’t shut off his television before the rat-eating segment, Aitken said he couldn’t do it quick enough.

Hmmm ... 2.5 million? Maybe I can sue for some money when the American Idol contestants' singing made my ears hurt.
