Have you seen this show on Spike TV? It’s about one of the lesser-covered old school Brooklyn professions: scrap metal resale. This is truly trash TV. And in the vein of Jersey Shore, it’s also a study in regional vernacular exploiting the world outside of Brooklyn’s romanticism of the local accent. And since Spike TV is geared toward men, the show is super manly. Enjoy.

Thanks for the tip, Anthony.

In searching for Scrapper clips on YouTube, I also came across this intriguing documentary about the controversial scrapping of government explosives. People wait beside the fields where the military runs test drops of bombs, then run out onto the field to recover the remains of the weapons. According to this documentary, blowing oneself up accidentally is not an uncommon job hazard. Crazy.
