Giligin's Vile

If you had a tough time keeping that shot of Cuervo down, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Imagine if it was a dram of Tabasco sauce or fish oil. Could ya handle that? You’d have to, especially if you wanna survive “Wheel of Fear Factor” -- the weekly bar battle. Participants make like Pat Sajak, spinning a wheel and choosing letters in hopes of solving a frequently lurid word puzzle. If it stops on one of several “Fear Factor” spaces, they’ll have a choice of completing some sort of disgusting duty -- like earning points for downing mayonnaise cupcakes -- or they forfeit their turn. Those who complete the tasks and the puzzle win such prizes as kegs or cases of beer.
