The things people do for £5million

Jackass star Johnny Knoxville is being sued by an actor for $10.5m (£5.3m) over claims that he was not paid for doing a stunt which left him injured.

Perry Caravello alleges that Knoxville, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and radio star Adam Corolla, promised him $10m to put his genitals in a mousetrap.

The legal action also claims he was humiliated when footage of the incident appeared on the internet.

If it's humiliating for a few people to see his act of supreme idiocy on the internet, I would imagine that it's likely to be even more humiliating for millions of people to read about it when he starts a lawsuit over it.

And while I regard Jackass as being a quite ridiculous show, I nonetheless applaud Johnny Knoxville's efforts to take this clearly incurably stupid man out of the gene pool!
