Dutch Treat

Not to be outdone by the new sperm-donor reality show "I Want Your Child and Nothing Else" on the Dutch television network Talpa, its rival BNN plans to air a new talk show on which its host will take heroin, LSD, Ecstasy, cocaine and other illegal drugs on air in a program "intended to reach young audiences on topics that touch their lives," its producers said Wednesday.

The show, scheduled to premiere on Oct. 10, is subtly titled "Shoot Up and Swallow."

Apparently BNN is no stranger to controversy: they've drawn viewer complaints for programs in the past, including the understated sex education program called "This Is How You Screw." One segment discussed how to have sex in a nightclub and featured life-size mannequins with sex organs.

How come all we get is people eating maggots on TV? What a rip.
