The Man Show - C(ancellation) minus a few months...

Postby Mercer Boy » Wed Mar 30, 2005 3:50 am

Well, some kids copied stuff off this show a'la Jackass...how long before "concerned parents" force Comedy Central to stop production on the show? :-? :,-(

Yahoo! News wrote:ROCKPORT, Maine - Three students at Camden Hills Regional High School face charges for using improvised stun guns on fellow students, police said.

The culprits, all freshmen boys, used the devices to shock fellow students on the bus, leaving visible burns and blisters on some of them, said Kip Bickford, an officer with the Rockport Police Department who works at the high school.

Two were charged with aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon, and the third was charged with carrying a concealed weapon because he allegedly took the device to school, Bickford said.

"These kids are not bad kids," Bickford said. "They're not kids who have been in trouble. They're not doing it maliciously. They're being stupid."

The teenagers learned how to convert disposable cameras into stun guns by seeing it demonstrated on "The Man Show," a program on the Comedy Central cable network.

An investigation revealed that about 10 students were victims of the devices, though most allowed themselves to be shocked. Two or three were unwilling victims.

The students were altering the devices to give a shock from the charge used for the camera's flash. A capacitor in the camera builds up the battery's charge to 330 volts for the flash, causing a jolt that's not life threatening, Bickford said.

Bickford said he tried the device on himself. The first time was not too bad, he said, but his arm was left numb for two hours when he tried it for a second time.

:-D That's awesome! They should reward those industrious young fellows rather than punish them. Making a stun gun out of disposable camera, classic! ;-D

I assume we are talking about the bad Man Show, the one without Adam Carolla. Good riddance then.

I agree. The kids should take full blame. They are taking their own risk by watching the show, and that's why some shows have viewer discretion notices: to help them if they get sued.

They should have stunned the principal when they got to his office. That would have been funny.

Agreed on all accounts :-D

BTW anybody got instructions on how to make one of those bad-boys? It's my friend's 21st birthday tomorrow and party favours are always a good idea ;-)

These kids should be punished for what they did,causing harm to fellow human beings.It's not like they made this up themselves,rather copied someone else's instructions on how to make one....not real brilliant by my standards.
