A rat's life
NY Daily News
Published June 24, 2001
Once again, the animals lose for the sake of a game
show. On "Fear Factor," rats were put on a contestant who 'braved' their
presence to win a prize. Another contestant referred to their 'stink' and
called them 'bastards.'
Rats are very clean, intelligent little beings, and
these were specially bred rats (no, NBC didn't comb the sewers to find
them). Rather than beings bastards, they were shipped out for gruesome lab
testing as soon as NBC was done with them.
