What you talkin' about Willis? I'm talkin' about bitches and guns and kicking Vanilla Ice's ass so hard he's gonna look like Mr Drummond!

In the under-under card, Bonaduce hit Williams so hard so many times he suffered a double concussion and a dislocated shoulder.

I can't wait for Celebrity Boxing II. Suggestions for participants, anyone?

I was hoping somebody would post about this. I've gotta tell you -- this was just about the silliest program I've seen on TV in a long time.

I have to admit, though -- I had better hopes for Vanilla Ice. Is he really calling himself "Bipolar" now? The commentators seemed really confused about it...

I'd pay to see George Will fight just about anybody. There's some caged heat for ya. Nobody with a weak chin and a bowtie doesn't have pent up homicide in `im.

Also, I'd love to see Bill Mahr fight a truck.

Wasn't Celebrity Deathmatch enough? Now we have to act it out for real?

I'd like to see the butthead Fox executive who greenlighted this idea with Dick Clark, whose production company said yes to producing it. Or better yet corral everyone who's responsible into a small warehouse and just set the damn thing on fire, with thirty cameras trained on the whole tragic thing so we can make an HBO special about it.

The world doesn't want to see these six people perform in any respectable manner, but sure we'll watch them beating each other's brains out and flushing what little dignity they may have had left down the toilet... Well actually, the people who agreed to this had nothing to lose because over the years the media shark frenzy has stripped them of any dignity. Anyone who signs on for Celebrity Boxing is trapped in desperation mode.

side-note, off-topic: I grew up calling it a "pig-pile", but I'm now under the impression that it more commonly called a "dog-pile".

The Afghan girl-from-the-cover-of-National-Geographic vs the girl-who-fell-down-the-well. Refereeing the match would be Herb from the failed "Where's Herb" Burger King ad campaign. The winner would go on to fight Tracy Gold.

posted by Bluecoat93 at 12:57 PM on March 15, 2002

I dunno. I guess I'm just lowbrow enough to get a real charge out of seeing people debase themselves for fame and fortune. I got a lovely frisson at seeing Barry Williams getting his shit kicked by that creepy Danny Partridge guy. It even beat seeing Donny Osmond's head covered in scorpions and millipedes ( on Celebrity Fear Factor).

It would be more fun though if they'd just have one low-rent celebrity versus a real boxer. bip bip bip bip bip thud.

(They should have a show where they take a dozen people and treat them like royalty for six months or something and film it all and then the TV audience votes on which player the other players have to catch, torture, kill, and eat, all on live TV. (Fox executives: call me now!))
