Last week, NBC was forced to completely shut down production on their program Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide for the sh*ttiest possible reason.

 

To start with, Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide is exactly what it sounds like: a TV show where contestants compete on oversized versions of the old backyard slip ‘n slides we used to play on in our yards growing up. So you can imagine what happened when a recent outbreak of waterborne giardia hit the set.

 

According to this report from The Wrap, the outbreak of “explosive diarrhea” left people on the set running for the port-o-potties. So yeah, NBC can keep their poopy slip ‘n slide. We’ll stick with the pros at Water Country, who just reopened last weekend. And now we gotta sing the song!
