    Good morning MAP,

    Here in the great land of Oz a new 'reality' TV show is about to start. Apparently it involves teaching a bunch of celebreties how to do some platform diving and then, I presume, scoring them while secretly hoping for nasty injuries.

    In short, a total waste of time and energy that is yet more proof of the vacuum that exists where creativity should be in the entertainment industry.

    But just whining about the state of affairs really isn't enough, what we need is some pro-active solutions to the problem. So I have had an idea!

    Celebrity MMA! Bear with me.... the idea is that you take the same bunch of folks that you were previously going to toss off a high board/ stick in a house/ maroon on an island, BUT this time you give them some rudimentary MMA training and have at it. It would be huge!

    So, which B grade actors, politicians, musicians etc would you like to see beating and choking one another? I would personally pay big money to watch Justin Beiber and basically anyone from One Direction go toe to toe, for example.

    Now we are talking.

    It could be argued that he has form in these sorts of cross gender encounters?

    Jessie J vs Kat Von D.

    Sean Bean vs That Guy from Walking Dead.

    That's all I got right now.

    Too predictable.

    Sean Bean always dies. :D

    Jodie Marsh v. Katie Price might be entertaining. Then again, it might just be annoying.

    How about Margaret Thatcher v. Audley Harrison? I reckon Thatcher would just sneak it on points.

    Watching people wipe out is always an aspect of platform or springboard diving. I always thought divers were a bit crazy to begin with.

    They have had former celebrity boxing before. I recall Vanilla Ice taking a beating from some one time child actor.

    Ed O'Neill vs Danny Trejo.

    Ed O'Neill because he is a blackbelt in BJJ under Rorion Gracie, Danny Trejo because he was Pennsylvania state prison champion in both the lightweight and welterweight divisions.

    Ed O'Neill is 67 years old and Danny Trejo is 68, but they both look fairly tough. I reckon it would be a classic striker vs grappler fight; Machete Cortez vs Al Bundy.

    From what I hear Ed O'Neill is a beast on teh mat because he gets pushed harder by his partners than anyone else..."no one wants to get tapped by Al Bundy" was a quote I heard attributed once!

    Danny Trejo looks like he'd hurt you just with his stare....

    Arnold Schwarzenegger vs Bruce Willis

    Not really B level actors, but it would be awesome!

    Rush Limbaugh v. Vladimir Putin. :D (Putin is technically not a celebrity, but as politics is Showbiz for The Ugly, I consider him one.)

    if you haven't done it already you HAVE to go and see Expendables 2, if only for the joy of watching Chuck Norris delivering a Chuck Norris gag. You don't get your preferred Willis vs Arnie match up, but you do get a Sly Stallone vs Jean Claude Van Damme classic.

    Plus it is possibly the funniest thing I have watched in an age.
