"You're totally safe with skunks," Kip Smith from the nonprofit Wildlife Encounters of Gretna told KMTV in Omaha, Nebraska.

"Their self-defense mechanism, they spray. It can shoot about 10 ... oh!" Smith said.

Are we bad people for laughing? No? Good.

"It's just water, it's just water," Smith said.

"He had a little water bottle, he squirted it at me," KMTV anchor Mike DiGiacomo said.

And while we we were busy laughing at KMTV anchor Mike DiGiacomo walking off-set, it really didn't seem like he was down with the joke.

"That's the last time you're coming on the show. ... Get this guy out of here. Security!" DiGiacomo said.
