What a ridiculous flood reporter might look like.

Aside from keeping his feet dry, there are A LOT of sanitation issues when dealing with flooding that you can easily contract.

You couldn't pay me enough to put my feet into floodwater in India. But still, it does look pretty bad.

When people never leave their own state, county, or country to understand what's acceptable in other countries, parts of the world outside their own... they usually lose their high-and-mighty shiat complaining about stupid, meaningless, things they don't understand in the context of where some random "horrific event" took place - so to speak.

Sort of like when everyone crapped all over Michael Vick.

Over there it's common to see reporters using flood victims as conveyance, or support above foul things below. Get with it you feckless hicks. Hire a person to carry you around, and get back to me.

I don't know, it sounds like the guy was happy to do it. Almost.. I mean, that's what the reporter says...

As long as he did not fart on the man, I do not see a problem here.

Realistically, it's a case of poor judgment but not really one for such global condemnation.

To be honest, and possibly expose my own biases, I didn't have an issue with this when I thought about it occurring in a western country.   When I realized it happened in a highly stratified society like India it seemed like exploitation.  My reasoning is this, if this was a reporter talking about the flooding near Calgary I can easily see even the poorest Calgarian telling the reporter to go fark him/herself.  I'm not so sure that a member of a lower caste in India has the same outlook on life. I might be completely wrong and racist in this assesment but thats my take on it anyway.

The caste system alive and well.

WTF? Are you serious?!

Why spend good money when I can have slaves do the job.

My prefered method of conveyance is to get 4-6 slaves to carry me around in a bamboo-pole Sedan Chair. It's great fun making them take me up a mountain or crossing the river. I even drag race them. I find any good energy drink is the equivalent to nitro, I drink lots of it and my slaves get water.

You have enlightened me toward a better path. Thank you, weapon13.
Now, will you please get off my shoulders?

I really like how he blamed the cameraman for trying to sabotage his career.

Should've done this in the middle of his report.
