When headlines go bad (Part the Nth)

When headlines go bad (Part the Nth) With a headline like, "Daredevil Carried From Ice Cell After 2-1/2 Days," you'd think it was about Matt Murdock, Marvel Comics' Man Without Fear (tm), after a fight with Mr. Freeze... But no, just some guy in an ice block for a publicity stunt. Shame, really...

I'm glad I'm not the only one that was expecting a red suit somewhere. And no, I don't mean Santa.

i just saw him live on telly
he thought his career was over because he couldn't walk out and make a triumphant speech
but then he was hallucenating he was dead and no one could hear him as well

i like him and thank god he's said he's not going to put himself through such extended torture any more, said is was hellish beyond belief and had to imagine himself as being a prisoner of war to get through it

he'll be walking in two days

(and personally i'd rather see elektra rather that another blind lawyer)

(and bill sienk--- i doubt he's really real)

What's wrong with shameless publicity stunts? I think we need more of them, personally.

Tonite at seven, sonofsamiam cuts his own throat for your amusement on the stairs of the courthouse wearing nothing but a flag!
