This is talent?

Have to wonder... flipping through channels I just saw half of a promotion for what appears to be a national talent show. Fair enough. Clips of extremely beautiful people dancing, doing magic, possibly discovering the pathogenic profile of an entirely new disease for all I know. I can accept all of that but...

...honestly, is putting scorpions down your pants a talent?

Jean: So what do you do for a living?

Bob: I put scorpions down my pants.

Jean: Oh really...

Bob: Been doing it for the last 8 years or so.

Jean: And your wife...does she work too?

Bob: Oh yes. She puts asps in her shirt. Cute little things.

Jean: And the rest of your family?

Bob: Mom raises black widow spiders in her hair. Dad is retired now. He swallowed leeches.

Jean: Anyone else?

Bob: My brother. Touchy subject in the family. We don't like to talk about him. He's been such a disappointment to my parents. He's a doctor.
