Diarrhea slip ‘n slides. What’s not to love? A lot, apparently, as NBC has pulled its upcoming competition reality show Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide from its schedule following an outbreak of “awful, explosive diarrhea” that shut down production, People reports. That’s right. Not just explosive diarrhea. Awful explosive diarrhea—one of the worst kinds of explosive diarrhea, as everyone knows.
The network had already made the call to pause production in early June following the outbreak, which reportedly affected as many as 40 crew members, but now it has lost its planned post-Olympics premiere with no replacement date to speak of. TMZ has gone so far as to declare that Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide has been canceled, but that hasn’t exactly been confirmed at press time. All I can say for sure is diarrhea slip ‘n slides.
