There are actually people out there fighting and dying to protect our way of life, and this is it
Me, in a slightly tasteless joke for the Guardian website
Tangentially to which, I think it's a real shame that Channel 4 didn't bite on my idea for a spin-off programme entitled Faking It Extreme, which would be the same show, but instead of disk jockeys and chefs, the ordinary punters would be invited to take three weeks training and then to try and convince a panel of judges that they were an air traffic controller, brain surgeon, member of the Metropolitan Police's elite C19 firearms unit or some such
Real life. "Armed and Famous", featuring La Toya Jackson, Eric Estrada, Ozzy Osbourne's son, a pro wrestler and some other fucker I haven't heard of, training as police officers and then going on patrol. Yes, they will be carrying guns.
