Poor Beaver… US actor Jerry Mathers, better known as TV’s Beaver Cleaver, ended up in a fight for his life after taking part in a Survivor parody on Jay Leno last month. As part of the act, Mathers and some other TV stars took part in the Repulsive Food Relay Race. The worm handed to Mathers for consumption turned out to be a deadly South American variety with sharp, biting pincers that bored through his intestinal lining. He was admitted to hospital in a severe condition after it left him with abdominal cramps, relentless diarrhoea and rectal bleeding. Poor bastard.
