Boise has made appearances on many television shows lately, but none had us rolling with laughter like Ghost Adventures. The trio of paranormal investigators came to the City of Trees to check out reports of haunting at the Old Idaho Penitentiary, but were midway up Table Rock when host Zak Bagans realized there just might be snakes in the hills. Duh. He proceeded to spend the next several minutes ignoring the fact that a trail leads to the top, and instead, jumped around screaming like a child on a sugar high, yelling "Dude" at regular intervals. Bagans then decided to face his fear and actually pick up a good-sized snake, then wondered if it was a rattlesnake (here's a clue, rattlesnakes usually rattle). He was then perplexed when the snake turned in toward him, proclaiming that the experience is just like Indiana Jones. We highly recommend searching for the clip on YouTube, it's worth the belly laugh.
