It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia : Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

Has anyone else read Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk? There is a story in it where a guy's lower intestine is sucked out after he sits on the pool drain and he has to chew threw it to get out. Was this storyline a blatant ripoff or a reference?

Re: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

Reference same as Mac and See getting stuck in the slide and more kids getting sent down, same thing happened to Homer in an old Simpsons episode.

I have read Haunted, but I don't think this was a reference to it.

Re: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

I've read the novel. I think both the book and this episode were drawing from an old urban legend. Or, maybe not old-old. Not older than swimming pool outtake valves, anyway.

Re: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

I read "Guts" for the first time just a few days ago. (It's one of the stories in "Haunted.") I thought of it as soon as Mac mentioned the drain. I see I'm not the only one.

Re: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

Palahniuk didn't come up with that. It's an old urban legend.
