SHOCK TV - MAN TO BE EATEN BY AN ANACONDA

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time I thought of the Discovery Channel as a "classy" channel.

Yes, you read that title right. In a grovelling exploitive pandering for ratings, the channel is now promising that viewers will have the opportunity to see a man (who clearly has a few issues of his own) be eaten (or, at least, swallowed) by an anaconda.

Even when Paddy Chayefsky wrote his "over the top" screenplay for Network he didn't envision anything as bizarre as this.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm rooting for the snake.

I wonder if this could lead to a new fad, perhaps, even new television series. You've heard of suicide-by-police. Well, I wonder how many TV executives are now discussing the concept of a new show, SUICIDE BY ANACONDA?

They could find some really depressed or mentally deranged people who are willing to be thrown into a pit of starving constrictor snakes. (The inducement might be that their families will be financially compensated for the loss of their "loved one").

How about a GAME SHOW?

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, gird your l o i n s and cover your ears!  It's time to play...RUSSIAN ROULETTE!"

 

"OK, contestant Number one----GIVE 'ER A SPIN!"

Any chance of getting the Toronto mayor on the show?

If you're thinking of you-know-who, mrroberts, he's no longer mayor but now a city councillor.
