Also, never EVER read even the first page of comments on a Fox News article. So much derp.

Don't do slugs, don't do drugs... if you farkers take hugs from me that's the last straw.

I saw this on Fox's main page this morning.  It's one of the three top stories following something about the evils of immigrants and something about blue lives matter.

The Gary Cohn resignation is about 45 headlines behind the "Australian eats a slug" article.

You can keep hugs, but they have to be with nuclear arms.

Slugs are cute little creatures in their own way, and should not be eaten.

Plus, Australia. Even the slugs can kill you.

The article didn't say anything about double dares are even the dreaded triple dare.
Kid should have learned the rules this is his own fault.

Plus its Australia. Once again, EVERYTHING kills people.

In Australia they don't need double dares and triple dares like wimpy Americans.
You dare them and they do it, cause they're real men!

Ah, I didn't see that.  I had no idea they had a slowly refreshing "hot topics" banner in 8pt font at the top just above the 30pt banner "Trump DOJ sues California, claiming state stands in the way of enforcing laws" with picture.

If you wait long enough, you'll see "Gary Cohn Out"  It appears roughly every 10 seconds.

It's there but it's teeny tiny.

I think more telling is that most of the page is filled with anti-immigrant hysteria.

No kid ever goes straight to slugs, there was a gateway reptile he was eating the parents willfully ignored.

At 19 years old you should know better than to swallow a god damn slug.

You bring up a good point. The story isn't called out anywhere else on that page and it is in small font.

'But he then lapsed into a coma for 420 days and became a quadriplegic.

His mother maintained a positive attitude and in late November 2011, posted her hopes on Facebook that her son would "walk and talk again" and still had the same cheeky attitude.'

On the other hand, I think the government could make a reasonable offer to the family to restore the funding if they allow the guy to be featured in a PSA called "Don't Do Stupid shiat Involving Animals, Especially In Australia" that airs on all broadcast TV stations hourly.

daring kid: I dare you to eat that slug!
dared kid: I will if you blow me first!
daring kid: deal! *gets to work and finishes*
dared kid: you win.

Certainly,  I even today would not have thought, "slugs might eat rat poop infected with worms thst may infect me and only then may cause a brain infection"   it's a biological Rube Goldberg disaster on some late night Discovery Channel special .

For the youngsters who never had the pleasure, NatLamp was a truly great magazine. You can at least see the covers here:
http://lampoon.rwinters.com/Lampoon19​7​7.htm

/When I moved overseas after college, I gave my National Lampoon collection (complete 5+ years) to a buddy. We subsequently lost touch and I never knew what he did with them. I like to think they're still out there somewhere.
