Only in America

June 10, 2011 - Michael Palmer
Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy is a program on The History Channel that airs at 9 PM on Tuesdays.

My usual reason for watching it is that I enjoy Larry's humor and the show is interesting as Larry crisscrosses the nation, going totally off the beaten path to find the people, places and things that define this nation's unique history.

This Tuesday my son is going to be on the program with Larry as he visits the Henry Doorly Zoo. Tony has worked at the Zoo since graduating from college and according to my information he will get his finger sliced open by a rather vicious ant, yes, I said ant. With the many vicious and large beasts at the zoo that could inflict damage upon a person, he gets impaled by an insect.

It is appropriate though, because he is an insect keeper at the Zoo. In his defense there are many deadly insects, like Black Widow and Funnel Web Spiders, there are Scorpions and other little creepy crawlers that are somewhat more fierce than their size would indicate.

So, if you are not doing anything Tuesday night, flip on the History channel and enjoy with me his 15 seconds of fame, and it is probably just 15 seconds, but hey, that is 15 seconds more time on national TV than his old man will ever get.


Larry Steps Into the Ring

Premiere Date: 06/14/2011

Larry shows us one of the greatest animal exhibitions on the planet at the amazing Henry Doorly Zoo. Then, he digs in at Dakin Farms in Vermont, where they have been making mouthwatering breakfast staples since 1792. Finally, he puts up his dukes at Gleason's, the legendary Brooklyn boxing gym that gave us everyone from Jake LaMotta to Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson.

Here is Tony with his hand covered with honey bees. A recreational activity for his occupation I am sure.
