We wish we had a category entitled What the F**K because this certainly makes the grade.

Here's a video of Louis, who apparently like to eat weird stuff. That's fair we guess...Andrew Zimmern made a career out of it with his Travel Channel show Bizarre Foods

But here's the difference between Andrew Zimmern and this guy - Andrew Zimmern gets paid a shitload of money to eat bats and snakes and eyeballs!

In any event, Louis is a total freak. In the video, the scorpion, clearly not wanting to be anyone's lunch, pinches and stings Louis. Good for the scorpion.

When Louis finally starts to eat Mr. Scorpion we hear possibly the worst crunching noise as the poor little guy gets masticated. Who would have thought we'd ever feel sorry for a scorpion?

Watch at your own risk (and on an empty stomach):

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
