Amid criticism of their decision to pick up Sarah Palin’s new nature documentary series, Discovery Communications announced today that they will be dubbing over the ex-governor’s voice with Sigourney Weaver’s.

“What we’ve found is that people don’t actually like to listen to Sarah Palin,” said one Discovery executive. “In fact, our focus groups reported feeling dizzy and slightly ill when early footage of Palin talking about Alaska was released. We even had one person compare it to the sound of a China plate scraping against the bottom of a porcelain sink that has not been thoroughly rinsed of cleanser.”

The move is not unprecedented. Discovery has twice dubbed over David Attenborough’s BBC narration for the series LIFE and Planet Earth in favor of an American voice. This is the first time, however, that a nature narrator has had his/her voice replaced because it was “so f**king annoying”.

“We believe Sigourney Weaver’s voice in place of Palin’s will bring some balance to what we hope will be a wonderful tour of the natural beauty of Alaska,” added the source.

Discovery still hasn’t decided whether or not to replace actual images of Palin with an animated talking squirrel — something focus groups have requested in addition to the sound. The new series is expected to debut sometime next year.

It’s worth noting that today is April 1st.
