I’ve been thinking of starting my own reality entertainment show. Something which will grip the nation on a weekly basis. After coming to the conclusion that most locally-produced content in South Africa should be set on fire, I hit on a great idea: let’s hunt the people who present those shows.

Think about it: every week, we’ll target one Top Billing or Kyknet presenter, and send a crack team of trackers and hunters after them. Like Man-Tracker, except not fake in any way whatsoever as we’ll actually give these guys a headstart and slowly torment along the way, savouring the hunt.

Of course, it’ll be a catch and release show. We’ll catch them, and slowly release them over a cliff. See, conservation is easy.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
