    American Gladiators!

    Sign me up, I'l move to the US just for that..what quality broadcasting! Now what did Bill Hicks say about American Gladiators?

Watch this, shut up, go back to bed America, here is American Gladiators, here is 56 channels of it! Watch these pituitary retards bang their fucking skulls together and congratulate you on the living in the land of freedom. Here you go America - you are free to do what well tell you! You are free to do what we tell you!”

    Don' t think he was a fan...
