everyday, we are really tippy-toeing closer to the ultimate and somehow completely believable end-result of this steady diet of bile...death penalty tv.

how can anyone deny that this would be the ultimate premise for a show? the whole season leading up to some schlub getting wasted on national tv in between mcdonalds ads and gw campain propaganda. it'll be a ratings blockbuster!

Mark, I'm sure the only reason we're not there already is because itwould be such a logistical nightmare and they wouldn't be able to keep under wrap whether he died.

I imagine it will hit pay per view soon though.

yeah, what with "ultimate fight to the death dolph-lundgren-style championship 14 live from a sweatshop basement in shanghai" already on ppv, and the current batch of reality tv coming closer and closer to springer-like car-crash-viewing, i imagine we're only a hop skip and jump from it.

not to get too carlin-ian on everyone, but really...when he did that bit in '96, it seemed so ludicrous. now, it's eerily entirely plausible, and that frightens the living bejeezus out of me.
