'Don't Embarrass Me'.
Don't talk to me about 'Human Nature'.
Does it exist?
I do try to understand my fellow humans ..... but ......
..... did you see Channel 4's 'Embarrassing Illnesses' last week?
I pressed the button on the remote to be treated to the sight of a bloke's bare backside revealing the most horrendous
The story was that they had become so bad over the years because he had been too embarrassed to go to the doctor.
So, here he was on primetime TV in front of millions of viewers exposing his disfigured bare backside to strangers, friends and family. The camera cut between his face and his buttocks as the doc examined his piles with far too much enthusiasm.
I was glad I'd had mi tea early.
How do channel 4 persuade someone to do this? Is alcohol involved? Or massive amounts of money?
If the poor guy craved fame he could have been on 'Flog it' with that terribly nice chap. Or - if he had nothing to flog - how about 'Wife Swap' or 'Make me a Christian'?
How will he ever face the bus queue or his colleagues in the office again?
We also had the rugby team examining their tackle, the sexy girl with flatulence and the young woman with inverted nipples who was embarrassed about showing her breasts (except on TV of course).
Thank goodness the bloke with athlete's foot only took his socks off.
