Just when you think you’ve seen everything, you haven’t
TruTV, which used to be Court TV, has announced that they will air a new series called ‘Man vs. Cartoon’, in which normal everyday
morons people try to replicate in real life what they have seen in a cartoon. Yes, you read that right. I don’t blame you if you don’t believe me, but you can read about it here.
So basically my expectations go something like this. Joe Idiot puts on some roller blades and straps an ACME rocket onto his back, waits for a roadrunner (or something of comparable speed) to run by, lights his fuse on the rocket in an attempt to chase said Roadruner, and basically kills himself. That’s when the family of Joe Idiot show up with an attorney and sue TruTV, which eventually leads them to again change the name of the network. But this time they change the name to reflect the ownership, which is now the family of the victim. You guessed it. TruTV is now IdiotTV.
But all that being said, I will probably watch it. I just want to see if they are actually going to drop an anvil on someone’s head.
