This morning on the official Dickhouse Twitter feed, @LHUknowBates slipped in and passed a sweet tweet from between her online cheeks that simply said "SLOTH BEAR. Thank you #wildboyz". In kind, I'm more than happy to reciprocate with a photographic outtake from said segment when and wherewith Steve-O mustered up the courage to wrestle an absolutely relentless sloth bear in India. I have so many favorite Wildboyz segments it's almost impossible to recall them all on the drop of a rupee, but the sloth bear onslaught definitely ranks highly with me in terms of action, reaction, and animal attraction. Sadly these beasts are often cruelly subjugated in the Indian territories and reduced to mere roadside truckstop sideshows, when they should actually be treated like proper MMA kings and allowed to reap the kick-ass rewards of Bollywood Pay Per View special events. Until then, no Wildboyz collection is complete without the entire Season 2 on DVD, which includes the two India episodes that later inspired the return jaunt on jackass number two in 2006.
