Jericho nuts  Not crazy, its f*#king nuts!

Passionate fans of TV show Jericho have launched, and may be winning, a campaign to have the show put back on the air by sending millions of nuts to CBS TV executives across the United States.

In May, when CBS Television cancelled the show about life in a small rural town after a nuclear holocaust, legions of fans were incenced, and plans were soon hatched to have the show re-instated. The idea to send nuts was soon chosen, and with a little help of some smart marketing from nutsonline.com, the campaign took off, and now some rumours say the show may get 8 more episodes. 

Quoting an anonymous source, The Associated Press Tuesday said CBS is reconsidering its decision to cancel the show. A decision on whether to bring the show back, probably for a mid-season run, is imminent. Is this a PR stunt to stem the flow of nuts, or is it genuine? Only time will tell Jericho fans.

Jericho cast and babes…

Why nuts?

In the final episode of “Jericho,” the town is under siege from a neighboring community.  When asked to surrender, lead character Jake Green, played by Skeet Ulrich, has a one-word response: “Nuts.”

The response is a reference to Gen. Anthony McAuliffe, a U.S. Army general who in World War II was surrounded by Germans demanding his surrender. His response: “Nuts.”

All I have to say is, what a waste of food.

Now, I’ve heard stories about people of various cultures around the world eat dirt, mud and clay for their perceived long term health benefits, an act called geophagy. But this is something quite ridiculous.

It’s been reported that for the last 40 years or so, a 66 year old man living in rural southeast China has been eating live frogs, mice and rats in a bid to cure his stomach pains and coughing.

Jiang Musheng of Jiangxi province told local media that when he was 26 he had chronic abdominal pains and coughing. According to the report an old man called Yang Dingcai came along and suggested he try eating tree frogs as a remedy.

“At first, Jiang Musheng did not dare to eat a live, wriggling frog, but after seeing Yang Dingcai swallow one, he ate … two without a thought…after a month of eating live frogs, his stomach pains and coughing were completely gone,” was the report in a local Chinese paper.

Musheng has been eating live frogs ever since, and has now moved onto mice, baby rats and green frogs, and once ate 20 mice in a single day. Just for kicks I suppose.

Update: It appears eating live frogs isn’t just isolated to the Chinese. Check out this jackass trying to impress his friends by eating a small frog, he isn’t very successful.

“Watch Out!” Iron Mike goes Bollywood, and he’s got a “Licence to Kill”.

Former heavyweight boxing champion and ear eating extodanare Mike Tyson is to star in an action thriller which would see the U.S. boxer imitate real life, India’s Mumbai Mirror said.

The former heavyweight champion featured in a promotional music video of newly released Bollywood film “Fool and Final”, but the cameo received such a positive response from viewers that the director  even incorporated the number in the film.

“I had decided to make a film with him later but after the promos featuring him received a great response, I decided to start the film sooner,” said producer Firoz Nadiadwala, who produced “Fool and Final”.

The daily said Tyson is getting a “huge price” for the new film — which will feature three top actors and be directed by a renowned filmmaker — but did not give any figure.

Tyson will play the role of a boxer, in a film expected to have a mix of drama and song and dance you would expect of your usual Bollywood film. The movie will be titled “Licence to Kill”. How original.

    “Fool and Final” babes.

And for the “Fool and Final” theatrical trailer…it looks pretty exciting.
