** An alternate explanation of why the artist in the above episode killed himself is that he never expected his plan to work - the idea that he could blackmail the PM into having sex with a pig was absurd. When the artist's plan actually succeeded, he was so horrified that he decided this was not a world that he wanted to live in, and killed himself.
