Take a Torch to It

May 11, 2008 9:00 PM

Executives looking for a peaceful way to cut staff now have the opportunity to do it “Survivor”-style.

CBS Consumer Products has announced an agreement with Fulais Industrial, a manufacturer of outdoor torches, to produce the Survivor Island Torch, enabling you, too, to stage your own tribal council—just check your local fire codes first.

The product is based on the one used in the show, the latest edition of which ended its run last night. The Survivor Island Torch will be available at retailers in 2009.
