  • Episode Description
  • Mike learns more about pig farming than he ever wanted to know as he feeds and cleans up after hundreds of pigs, plays with piglets, and artificially inseminates a sow. After a day at the pig farm, Mike hits the streets of New York City with "Gum Busters" removing discarded gum from the sidewalks. Later, he joins a crew who are cleaning pigeon droppings and nests. Mike also helps them in installing a system to prevent the return of pigeons to the building.moreless

    • Mike: (Stumbles on roof) Another colossally stupid way to die: "What happened to Mike?" - "Ah, he fell off a building." - "What was he doing?" - "Ah, he was cleaning up pigeon poo. Tragic really, cut down in the sub-prime of his life."
