That's the name of the reality show I just watched in my mind. In it, funnyman Jim Norton and a gaggle of 12 anorexic models live together for three months in a fantastic mansion, and the dreamgirl who loses the most weight wins a terrific prize. A typical scene shows Norton sitting on the couch eating Ruffles while the girls do jumping jacks in front of him and try not to snap their shins. "Let's see those ribs, honey!" At the end of each episode, the living dolls all hit the scales and the heaviest one (first week: 75 lbs.) is booted out, to Norton's cry of "Hit the bricks, YOU FAT LOAD!!!" This catchphrase sweeps the nation. To the slimmest young lady who doesn't succumb to heart failure before the 90-day mark? A prize of $100,000 and a sense of relief that the last thing she sees on Earth won't be a twitchy creep standing over her adjusting his fly and trying to decide if he should lift her skirt and get in there before it's too cold.
