Well, it was a good run - Hole in the Wall is here

Over the weekend while Amanda and I escaped upstate, we were flipping through channels on the old TV.

And then we saw it. In short we saw a program on Fox that for us signals the end of Western Civilization as we know it. Even in these times of renewed hope and responsibility the mere fact that this show exists is a clear sign that America is about to lose it's place as top dog in the world.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the new Fox gameshow, Hole In The Wall

Click through to the Fox site for a few trailers that show more of the same.

Here's how it works - you see there are these holes in the wall and teams of people or individuals need to contort their bodies to fit through the holes as the wall approaches. If they don't slide through the hole they get pushed into a big green puddle.

That's it. That's the show. This was pitched by someone wearing a suit in a boardroom somewhere. And then a bunch of other people who also wear suits said "Yeah - this sounds like a good idea- let's go with it."

Well America, it was a good run while it lasted. Actually after a touch of research, I find that Hole in the Wall is an international phenomenon that is just now making it to America.

Well Planet Earth, it was a good run while it lasted.
