If you’re going to do something stupid, do it stupidly

Derren Brown fired blanks?

This is pathetic. I don’t need to say anything more, but I will anyway.

I wrote about WILLFUL PUBLIC STUPIDITY last week. Russian roulette on TV blah, blah, blah. Apparently, the guy lived. And a comment on my post said

Derren’s show was absolutely fantastic. Does anyone you know (who isnt crazy) have the balls to put a gun to their head and pull the trigger?

Well, no one did it on television, either. At least not a loaded gun. Police claim he used a blank bullet in the gun.

But wait, you say. A blank would have killed him anyway.

Yes. That simply proves that he not only DIDN’T do what he claimed to do, but that his chickening out wasn’t very smart, either. In fact, is anyone or anything connected to this joke even remotely sensible? Just asking.

The commentor also noted that the stunt was on Channel 4, not BBC 4. I stand corrected.
