Okay, I was flipping through the channels while at work and I briefly saw a really bizarre scene from a movie (or maybe TV show, I'm not sure.)

Anyway, the scene shows this large tortoise crawling around in the desert with a SEVERED HEAD attached to the top of it shell.  The head looks vaguely like Danny Trejo (you know, "Machete" from Grindhouse).  Anyway, there's several police officers  and an older sheriff nearby.  The sheriff, seeing this, runs to his car, gagging in horror.  The other officers though are having a good old time (because, you know, nothing says hilarity like a grisly murder) laughing and making fun of the man for being disgusted.  Then, as all the other officers are gathered around, one of them pulls the head off the large turtle and BOOM!  A bomb goes off, (presumably) killing everyone nearby except the sheriff, he was at the car.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

It's a scene from the TV series Breaking Bad.  No idea which ep, which season had the exploding head+tortoise, but that is definitely the show.

That is from Breaking Bad and it is Danny Trejo's head  In another ep in season 3 you see how that happened.  You don't betray the cartel.

And you thought Trek isn't cool.
