Iggy Pop's Reality TV

'Dead Dog Island'

OK, so the blogosphere has been giggling over Iggy Pop's rider, which normally communicates musicians' needs and wants to the venue at which they're performing. Iggy's, on the other hand, is a snarky, hysterical first-person essay. Well, of sorts. The rider's addendum features Iggy's idea for a reality game show. Here's the main hunk of it: "It's called 'Dead Dog Island', where a group of contestants / dog lovers is asked what is their favourite breed of dog, then whatever they reply (for example, 'Poodle'. Or 'Labrador') they are then presented with a dead dog of that particular breed, which they have to cook in a number of different ways, say about six or seven, and then eat it all up over the course of the next, oooh ... two weeks or so. But just to make it a little more difficult and sort of gameshow-y, all the knives are blunt, and they have to wear a pair of those enormous clown trousers, made out of wood or something, so that they can't quite reach anything. Well only just, anyway. The first person to completely eat all his (or her) dog, and not be thrown off the island by the public for being too pleasant, or maybe unpleasant, wins another, live dog of exactly the same breed. And pots of money. And free dog food for life (of the dog)." So CL thought we'd try to come up reality TV shows that would be more bizarre:
