MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Here's a good date flick.

Key Quote: We see a volunteer biologist swallow tapeworm larvae and, 11 weeks later, excrete a worm that has grown to more than two metres.

Update: Turns out this is a registration site. It's about a BBC documentary series called Body Snatchers, about parasites, which as the BBC has already shown can be a ton of fun.

Holy crap.

...

Eugh.

MOTW? Muahaha!

That bioligist needs a life. Anyone got a free one?

*reads update, is suddenly glad that the site requires @#$^! registration*

Sorry I meant biologist.
I thought the whole idea was to avoid parasites.

So it's a diet show then?

Gross, disgusting eewww. Where can I get the video tape.

Yum - time for dinner! Botflies, anyone?

Anybody got a hack with an email address and password to get around the registration?

What's the big deal? It's not like tapeworms contain trans fats.

hahaha
good!!
i want to dinner!!!

hahaha
good!!
i want to dinner!!!

now that is what you call "wormy"

Okay I didn't read this but I do not like . . .

I'll post something as soon as I regain consciousness.

*faint*

what about the guy who kept crab lice alive on his arm for 2 days? that is, like, gross me out, man

They pulled larva out of some chick's head.

Ewww.

or, more like, gag me with a botfly

the guy who swallowed the tape worm larvae should really consider applying for "Fear Factor"

Ew.

Spew.

Flew.

...way the hell away from that disgusting parasite pic on the BBC site.

Yup. Perfect date flick.

If you both puke, or not, you might be compatible.

If one does and the other not, mebbe there's too much difference in your personality/background.

Bet the concession stand goes broke tho ...

"Disgusting Parasites" wbagnfarb

What does it mean if neither of you stop chewing your chocolate bars?I'm the son and stepson of veterinarians. Tapeworms were a common theme of dinner conversation in my house.

bet that was appetizing dinner conversation

"I lost 36 pounds the Slimfast way!"
"I went to the Barix clinic and had my nipples removed! What? They weighted like, 19 pounds a piece!"
"Oh yeah? Well, I lost over 86 pounds by stuffing a cup of maggots up my arse before every meal, and at those troublesome snack times."

it would help if I learned how to spell, but I was really trying to use the new Microsoft lingo

reneviht --

I'd guess that you're prolly pretty compatible ... at least in this area,

no pukes is good news ... to coin a phrase.

*regains consciousness, looks at article*

*faint*

Damn

Moral of the story....Stay away from Costa Rica!....and Nepal...

*dialing rapidly*

Hello? User support? Hi. I have a problem. What's my asset number? Well, that's part of the problem, I can't see it. In fact I can't see anything of my PC just now. Or much of the surrounding cubicle. And only parts of the workmate in the next cubicle. What happened? Well, you see, I had just finished lunch and I starting reading a new Bave Barry blog entry.....

I have seen this program - if you read the update link it was released in 2003. I have a pretty strong stomach from working in hospitals, and I thought it was pretty damn gross at times, so it's not for the faint of heart.

Botflies and leaches and three foot long tapeworms,
Being a landlord to all of God's lifeforms,
Worms that have hooks and worms that leave rings,
Nothing could make me eat one of those things!

See what she looked like when botflies attacked her,
See creatures too gross to appear on 'Fear Factor',
Passing worms by the meter must sting,
On a date, your nose-leech will ruin everything!

When you're tired of
your co-workers
Think of them this way:
They're just parasites in the corporate 'host'
So 'naturally' it's o.k.!!

"Every living thing has at least one parasite and many creatures, including humans, have far more."

I bet there's a lawyer joke in there somewhere.

Whiskey, tango, foxtrot, what the fuck?

ugghhh,
what a waste of good tapeworm larvae.
the biologist should be ashamed of himself-subjecting those poor tape worm larvae to live on the contents of his stinking intestine,
I suggest we start a movement for more ethical treatment of tapeworms and other internal parasites.
