    This week's episode of "Penn & Teller: Bulls...!" on Showtime is on the martial arts:

    I thought it was hilarious. They did a great job poking fun at the McDojos and some crackpots.

    Same here! I only wish they had gone further. Marc MacYoung was on-target as usual, esp. with fear mgmt. vs. danger mgmt.

    I think that is a fair comment. I also think they went out of their way to find people who would be easy to poke fun at and represents some of the fringe elements in the martial arts community.

    Absolutely that was the case. They wanted to proclaim ******** so they set it up in a certain way so that it would be that way!
