Don't do this at home

Who knew New Zealand television could be such fun and games?
From a complaint to the television watchdog, the Broadcast Standards Authority:
In a segment of Balls of Steel called "Pain Men", two men devise various methods of inflicting pain on each other. In this programme, one of the men applied an electric belt sander twice to the other man's bare buttocks. The injured man then had a nail hammered through the skin between his thumb and forefinger and into a block of wood. A viewer complained that the programme set a dangerous and stupid example, and breached standards of good taste and decency, law and order, and children's interests.
If it's good enough for Jesus it should be good enough for those jackasses, no?
