Yes or No
I got a simple idea for a game show. It would be the biggest thing on TV.
Take important people, politicians, public officials and Corporate C.E.O.s, have them represent their favorite charity.
Ask a series of questions, each one worth a bigger payout.
Here’s the catch; in order for the contestant to win the money for their charity, they simply have to answer each question with a…
YES or No
As soon as they spew out a yes with a maybe or, a no with a but…BOOM! Game Over!
Think about it. It’s beautiful. Sure, all those fat cats would be reluctant but, the first member of congress that took home millions to the local charity would become a folk hero. Simply for being honest.
The more serious and legitimate the questions, the more people would watch.
