A Connecticut weatherman thought he had dropped a bit of cereal on the floor. Showing his grit, he picked it up and ate it on live TV.
"It is soggy. It tastes like shoes," Haney announced. "I don't think those were Grape Nuts."

He later connected the dots. Realizing there were more Grape Nut-like pieces trailing around the studio, he looked under his shoe and found the source.
It turns out he stepped in -- and then subsequently ate -- cat vomit.
Let the Haney-like faces commence.

Later in the show, after finding the evidence, Haney admitted his mistake.
"My cat threw up and I stepped in it and that's what I ate," he said. "I ate cat vomit, right here on television."
The source of the vomit was Haney's shoe. (Image source: WFSB video screenshot)
