Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

Saves on the clothing budget: Two new series on the Discovery Channel have added a voyeuristic twist to the typical "survival in the wild" series. "Naked and Afraid" and "Naked Castaway" both throw survivalists into the middle of nowhere without food, water, tools or clothing. A third new show on Discovery, "Tabloid," will feature talk show host Jerry Springer rehashing tabloid stories.

We were hoping Springer was going to be dropped -- without food, water, tools or clothing to see how long he could survive -- in the middle of one of his old studio audiences.

Release the Worm: U.S. military officials are taking measured steps in response to North Korea's bellicose saber-rattling, uncertain of how to respond without provoking its unpredictable leader Kim Jong Un.

But if necessary, the United States is prepared to take the most severe of actions: dropping former NBA star and personal friend of the Dear Leader, Dennis Rodman, into the heart of Pyongyang without food, water, tools or clothing.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1820, a Greek farmer discovered the Venus de Milo statue on the island of Milos.

The Venus was found where she was dropped some 1,900 years earlier without food, water, tools or arms.
