After breaking the story that NBC was planning to air an episode of “Fear Factor” that featured contestants chugging a glass of donkey semen, TMZ is now reporting that NBC has pulled the episode:
But the NBC website no longer lists that episode as airing [tonight] … and instead lists a repeat of an episode entitled “Snake Bite” — which first aired on January 2.
We also checked two channel guides — one in LA and one in NYC — and both now list the repeat instead of the one with the donkey semen stunt. Additionally, promos for the episode are no longer posted anywhere on the Internet. [TMZ]
So, wait… if they’re pulling all the donkey semen off the air, why didn’t they cancel “Whitney”?

In all honesty, I don’t want to talk about this. Not even a little bit. The only way to cover this story is to either discuss the merits of drinking donkey semen on television, or praise TMZ for raising awareness of it, and both of those options are revolting to me. It’s like my own personal episode of “Fear Factor.” Nope. This simply will not do.
Instead, here is a video of baby bulldogs learning how to walk. Let us never speak of this whole sordid ordeal again.
