Although I am not a fan of reality television, I have a treatment for a new show that combines learning about state laws and the spirit of "Jackass". In Lawbreakers: A Reality Show, each show would take place in one of the Fifty States, where contestants vie for cash prizes by breaking outdated and asinine
For example, in the state of Iowa, a man with a moustache may never kiss a woman in public, while in Virginia, it is illegal to tickle women. Well, you get the idea. Contestants will earn more money performing the illegal act in front of an officer of the law. If the contestant is thrown in jail, more money shall be awarded. The degree of difficulty and wackiness, which shall be determined by a panel of judges, will also establish the monetary amount. Imagine a contestant in Lexington, Kentucky flashing an ice cream cone in his pocket to a group of police officers. While illegal, it will also test the competency and knowledge of our nation's finest.
