People Like Pus
« on: April 22, 2019, 10:55:16 PM »
I got this email from Lost In Tv the other day:

CASTING CALL - Do you have a skin condition which needs to be treated?

PEOPLE LIKE PUS (Working Title)

Do you have visible cysts, lipoma, cystic acne, big blackheads, severe boils or any similar skin condition which needs to be treated?

Are you on a long waiting list for treatment, or perhaps the NHS can’t help and you can’t afford to go private?

Is your condition is affecting your confidence or self-esteem?

We are searching for people who are desperate for FREE and SPEEDY medical treatment and advice.

The doors to a new dermatology clinic will be opening soon, where you can get professional help on a brand new TV series!

To register your interest in this casting opportunity, please click on the TAKE PART button below to be taken to our website. You can then login and apply to take part in the show.


So do you think this will make for riveting tv? If you had a skin condition, would you go on it yourself? And surely they're not going to stick with that title, right?

This is inspired by Dr Pimple Popper isn't it? All I know about her is her name, I have absolutely no desire to check out her YouTube channel.

Free and speedy treatment for the desperate, in return for them allowing Channel 4 (of course it's Channel 4) humiliate them for ratings. Yep, sounds ethical. I bet Dr Christian Jessen is already on board.

That working title will hopefully be changed. I can say with some amount of authority, as someone who suffered from extreme cystic acne as a teenager and am still suffering with a much milder version to this day in my fucking forties, it turns out people DON'T like pus. Quite the opposite, turns out they're not that keen on it at all.

The NHS will help, any GP will dish you out Minocycline or something if you go to them bemoaning your spotty boat.  It didn't help when they prescribed me a nascent form of Roaccutane when I was in my teens and it turned me from a depressed boil ravaged outcast into a paranoiac persecution complex case who thought traffic lights were turning red out of spite because I was in the car, but I don't blame the entirety of the NHS for that, they were trying to help. The copy here sounds a bit like it's going down the right wing "Bloody NHS, eh? Bloody useless" narrative line. However, I'd even turn a blind eye to the title 'People Like Pus' if it addressed the Accutane/isotretinoin issue and its potential deleterious effect on mental health. Dermatologists still wave this away as if it's some kind of myth and I can vouch that it 100% isn't.

'People Like Pus', though. It'll just be lingering shots on weeping carbuncles and a Come Dine With Me voiceover, won't it?

Mrs Nose and Little Nose are HUGE fans of that, so I imagine this show will easily find an audience.  Fucking weirdos.

I don't know why but I find it strangely satisfying, and love a good bit of spot bursting, but a whole programme of it would be tedious.

The Eczema Factor

Ha, that's a much better title!

How did they not come up with this themselves? That's brilliant Blue Jam.

Yeah I fucking love all this shit. I would never watch it on TV though. All I want is a short video, ideally no longer than a minute, of a bit of buildup and then the climax.

Concentrated hits of it, that's all I care about. It's one of the only reasons I still go to reddit.

The S*n website currently features a video showing pus squirting from ingrown pubic hairs, in case anyone was wondering.  No I'm not linking it.
