The Greatest Show on Earth

I have been told on more than one occasion that I have the mentality of a 12 year old boy, which, now that I have typed that seems a bit inappropriate, so it should come as no surprise when I reveal my most favorite show on television: Most Extreme Challenge on SpikeTV.

Before all the pointing and laughing starts, please read the 3 reasons why this show is hilarious.

  1. There is nothing funnier than watching people wipe out while trying to avoid some dudes in a weird costumes over a pit of dirty, disease infested water. (see attached video on link)
  2. I lied, there is something funnier, and that is the commentary that is dubbed into English, by these two Japanese guys wearing aforementioned costumes. These two guys are all about the double entendre, which pleases my 12 year old brain immensely.
  3. Japanese imports are cool. (If you need proof of this, email me at sloanesdayoff at gmail dot com. Some of their *ahem* better products are not for the faint of heart. ;) )

Alas, no one I know shares the same enjoyment I get out of watching this show; so I am stuck watching it alone on my couch nursing a bottle of some sort of cheap alcohol while laughing my ass off and lamenting on what my life has become.
