Roy Halladay, Chris Carpenter, and B.J. Ryan Go To The Amazon…

… for a fishing trip. 

Roy Halladay and Chris Carpenter help a local fisherman who was bitten on the ass by an anaconda. They are celebrated as heroes. (In case you were wondering: anacondas don’t have venom, so there is no butt sucking.)

That’s a picture of the guy who got bit on his butt. 

Chris Carpenter breaks his toe, but he’ll be okay. He’s a tough guy.

B.J. Ryan, meanwhile, drops a couple hundred bucks on a sweet fishing rod but it breaks on the second day of the trip and he spends the rest of the time sulking and cursing his own profligacy.

On the bright side, at least he doesn’t pee in the river.
