DIY kosho?

Surely someone at some point has been inspired by watching The Prisoner and set up their own kosho ring. Preliminary searches on Google and YouTube only turn up things related to “real” kosho and not the product of Patrick McGoohan‘s imagination.

Come on, in the post-Jackass era, can you seriously tell me no one has done this? And videotaped the results and posted them on the Internet?

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch this (from the episode It’s Your Funeral, if I’m not mistaken):

  1. Dear God I hope this turns something up. If it does not then clearly we need to form a building crew and make it happen. Maybe we should contact the Army Corps of Engineers? Helpful for the Engineers and we could sell it to the Army as a war game or exercise.

    I think the problem is this:

    Let X be the set of people responsible for us being the the post-Jackass era.
    Let Y be the set of people who have ever seen the prisoner and a huge fans of it.
    Let Z be the set of people who have the kind of money it would take to build such an arena.

    The intersection of X, Y, and Z is most likely the empty set.

  3. Jamie: I’m 99% sure the immediate answer is going to be “no”. However, in posting this for the world to see, I’m ultimately hoping to plant the idea in some passer-by who at the very least belongs to sets X and Z, as well as Y’, the set of people who watch that YouTube clip from The Prisoner and want to do that themselves. It’s like rule 35, but without the porn.

    Note to members of X, Y’, and Z: if you do try to do this and wind up breaking your neck and/or drowning, it’s your own fault for doing stupid things you read about on the Internet.
