50 Completer Aron Ralston in Raunchy Tosh.O Skit on Comedy Central

The full Comedy Central Tosh.O clip featuring 50-completer Aron Ralston that aired this week is now available. It’s raunchy, bawdy, irreverent and quite unlike anything ever done. But if you’re into Tosh.O humor it’s hilarious. The skit is a web redemption of Jason Kruk who went to the bathroom while climbing. The video was posted to youtube and went viral.

NOTE: This is very graphic, uses foul language, discusses sexual situations and is based on potty humor.
