â†µI got an email about a month ago from a friend who asks me if I want to see Kevin Boss get his ear nibbled on by a toothless man. I write for a sports blog, so I say, "of course I do, please tell me more, kind sir." â†µâ†µ
â†µHe sends me this photo, taken from his phone in the control room at MTV. â†µ
â†µAs you can see, the top right image is a man taking out his fake teeth, getting ready to chew on Boss's ear and neck. My friend is Creative Producer for the show Silent Library, which may be the best job on TV as he doesn't actually write anything. Instead, my friend and his sadistic co-conspirators come up with ridiculous challenges in which people try to stay quiet to earn money. The quieter they stay, the more money they can earn. The theory behind the show is that restrained laughter is inherently funny, so the longer they try to stay quiet, the funnier the situation actually becomes. â†µâ†µ
â†µOh, it takes place in a library, hence the name Silent Library. So when I got this email from my friend I was entirely intrigued and hoped to grab some sort of exclusive. It turns out, Boss beat me to it, as he tweeted out some images yesterday as well. â†µ â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥Be sure to tune in to MTV next Mon at 5pm to see me and some of my teammates compete on "Silent Library." Should be good for lots of laughs! â†µâ†µ
â†µThe second image is a photo of center Shaun O'Hara (also pictured in the two video screens above) getting hit in the face with a tennis ball that seems to be emanating from a contraption that he's propelling. See, this is why offensive linemen should never do cardio. â†µ
â†µThe season premiere is Monday at 5 p.m. on MTV and this season not only features the Giants offensive line, but also the Octomom. I was offered photos of the Octomom as well, but was told I had to wait until Thursday because some site I'm not supposed to mention that ends in "Z" has exclusivity until then. I decided to stick with a little old man gumming up the ear of a Super Bowl champion. â†µâ†µ
