News Anchor Accidentally Eats Cat Vomit

Proof that TV news people really are nutjobs. 

On Wednesday morning, Scot Haney, weatherman for Hartford’s CBS affiliate WFSB, scooped up a handful of food-like crumbs from the studio floor and immediately ate it on-the-air. What possessed him to do that in the first place? Well, he thought they were leftover Grape Nuts.

After several seconds of munching, he realizes the food smells like “dog poop” and doesn’t taste so good.

Cut to a later on-air report, where Haney half-giddily/half-horrifiedly told the viewers that he actually ate his own cat’s vomit off the bottom of his shoe.
