Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Video


Okay - if the title of this story lured you in, you:

  2. Are obsessed with enemas. (Or things that involve that general area.)
  3. Are a sick bastard.
  4. Know that you might be in life or death situation some day and would like to know how to survive in the middle of the ocean when you have nothing to drink but water laced with bird poop.

If you want more Bear goodness, you can either watch him eat a fish eye after the jump, or just simply watch the season premiere of Man vs. Wild tonight @ 9:00 on the Discovery Channel.
