    Okay people... some suggestions on who contestants should be? Of course, Danny Williams, Lorraine Michael and Yvonne Jones (if they can find helmets big enough for them). Possibly Earl McCurdy - would get a mouthful or two of muck. Certain individuals involved in the constituancy allowance scandal... tho they've already dragged themselves and their families thru the muck... other suggestions???

    My husband and myself watch this show all the time! It is absolutely hilarious! I wish I was younger and had the energy to try it.
