If you think being a reporter for a local television station is a glamorous job, think again. See that picture on the left? That reporter is covered in raw sewage.

The New York Daily News says that Tucker Barnes, who works for the Fox affiliate in Washington, D.C., was doing a report on Hurricane Irene for the Fox station in New York when he was covered with some sort of foamy substance. He thought it was "plankton or something," adding "it doesn't taste great."

No wonder -- Fox later reported that it was raw sewage pouring into the ocean and being whipped into foam by the wind.
