You watch Entertainment Tonight or Total Request Live and you think, "Man, I'd just love five minutes alone with that guy" or you're watching boxing and think, "What a pantywaist. I could take him!" Well, here's your chance to put some bight with that bark. Pay-Per-View can roll out, "Fight a Celebrity", giving common people a chance to express how they truly feel about celebrities in an upclose and personal way. We've already had "Ce;ebrity Boxing", and people loved it, but this is the next step, bringing the fight to the viewer and putting them in it. The show would be a 10 round contest, with the option of gloves and headgear going to the celebrity, not the viewer. Standard Las Vegas scoring would apply. Think about it folks. Wouldn't you love to watch B2K get "Bump, Bump, Bump"ed into a bloody pulp? I would.

Utterly vapid "entertainment" celebrity fawn-a-thon TV station, now available in "UK & Ireland" flavour [my face your, Oct 17 2004]

       Without knowing any more of the facts than are currently available, Saddam Hussien -vs- George Bush on PPV just might have been a better option than Iraqi Freedom.

       I think it would be harder to find celebrities who would fight. Maybe it should be celebs vs paparazzi (<-- don't bother I've already checked the spelling). We could see Michael Jackson beat the tar out of whoever the people were that killed Princess Di with his 4 year old.

       and as an added bonus, when you kill someone with a four-year-old, there's no murder weapon.

       Sigourney Weaver. Or Sandra Bullock. Or Helen Hunt. Man, I'd love five minutes with any of them in a wrestling ring. I'd really show 'em how I feel about them.   

       (Actually, not sure I'd survive five seconds with Sigourney).

       You'd beat up Cicely Tyson?
thumbwax, Jun 21 2003
  

       What's your beef with Sigourney, egbert. Are you afraid of strong women.

       <random daydream>mmmmm......wrassling with Sigourney</random daydream>

       [gnomethang] "day"-dream? LOL!

       Aparrently someone from HB took this idea a little too seriously because Tyson's in jail for fighting some common Joe. Sounds like the common Joe started it.

       [blissmiss] I think I'd kinda like to see that! Could it be mud wrestling in bikinis. Tonya and Anna aren't much to look at but I'm sure you'd make up for their short comings. Plus there'd be three and we all know that women can combine their scores. For example a 2, 4, and a 6 make a perfect 10!
shazam, Jun 25 2003
  

       Last time I saw Anna she was about 26...
silverstormer, Jun 25 2003
  

       Anna has changed my friend. You need to get out more. Anna is a very nasty woman now. Watch the Anna Nicole Show on E!.

       I think I'll stick to my bog-standard terrestrial channels, thank you.

       Ooh, I feel evil, but I'd like to rough up Carrot Top. Is that bad? Is that wrong? He needs a good pummeling.

       I'd think it more likely to be watching boxing and think "What's a pantywaist?"
hidden truths, May 09 2005
  

       [obligatory not very interesting point] Some would say that the term "bog- standard" is actually a journalistically- inept misheard corruption of the term "box-standard" as used in the noisy pits of motor-racing racetracks of yesteryear. Then again, some would refute even that.

       It's very tempting to just weigh in with the name of an unpopular celebrity.
neilp, May 09 2005
  

       OK. I'd fight Jamie Oliver.
neilp, May 09 2005
  

       [K_sra] Have you seen carrot top's arms lately? The man has guns!
SpocksEyebrow, May 09 2005
  

       bite them, I say.
